Below is how to build shoulder muscle.

Barbell Shrugs

Barbell shrugs work best for most people. When doing this, try to use a weight that is reasonable, and do not try to overload the bar with plates. Do 4 SETS of 20 REPS and try to hold the top position for like 10 sec.

Standing Military Press

In doing this, you must also use the weight that is proportional to what you can use. Try to lift with your shoulders not your legs. And also make sure that you lift the barbell high above your head and lock your hand/elbows before returning to your chest…

Do 4 SETS of 8 REPS.

Front/Side/Rear Delt Raise

This is yet another powerful and effective workouts that really do your shoulders. Do this with lighter dumbbells and 10 REPS for each of the different positions without resting.


When you do the above workouts as stipulated and religiously, you shall definitely see results. To build shoulder muscle is not all about doing tons of different moves and heavyweights, but doing the right exercise that targets building the shoulders. It is as simple as that.

If you had been having difficulty in the past towards building big shoulders or you haven’t tried but wanting to start, well this is it, the perfect workouts for you.

  1. This is some great information on building your shoulders. When working out, should you only focus on one or two parts of the body on certain days, or all everyday? What is your recommendation?

    1. Hello Margei,
      Working on two body parts on a certain day is recommendable. It depends on how long a particular body part session takes you to finish. However, if for instance, you decide to do shoulders and legs on a day is Ok, then the next session should be your abs and biceps, then the next could be a bit for the whole part of the body. It is something you should use your discretion to know where to concentrate the most. Some people might think they have gained success on their abs and triceps but have not made a significant success on the shoulder, then shoulder workout should be more.

      But do not forget doing cardios in the middle of these all.You warm up before you engage on any kind of strength training.

  2. hi Nnamdi!
    well I was happy to see that I do all the exercises in the last video you posted! When I worked out with a personal trainer about 4 years ago, the biggest change in my body that I saw was in my shoulders. I finally had defined shoulders! So I have tried to keep it up as much as possible, including with punches when I do kickboxing. Nothing sexier than great shoulders 🙂

    1. Thank you Emily, It appears you are always a step ahead with your workouts, that’s great.
      I also love kickboxing, but not actively engaging.
