Shoulders, not only will having stronger shoulders help you lift heavier weights for almost all your upper body exercises, but having muscular broader shoulders gives you more of that v taper look and enhances your overall appearance. And I’m sure most of you already know about very effective exercises like barbell military presses, Seated dumbbell presses, and lateral raises. But if you want to efficiently build muscle and avoid plateaus due to adaption it’s very important to switch up your exercises. So rather than going over the common shoulder exercises that you already know about and are probably doing I’d like to go over 5 of the best shoulder exercises that you’re not doing because you’ve either forgotten about them or maybe you never even knew they existed. So you’re going to want to stay with me through this video because these exercises are extremely effective and if you haven’t been doing them you can bet that by incorporating these into your shoulder workouts you’ll start seeing some really nice changes to your shoulder size, shape, and strength in no time. Keep in mind the shoulder muscle has three heads the anterior, medial, and posterior or the front, middle, and back heads, and when combined these 5 exercises will help you develop all three heads. Let’s start with one of the best exercises for your lateral head the leaning lateral dumbbell raise. Regular lateral raises are one of the best exercises to build the middle part of your shoulder. But this exercise presents a lot of advantages that regular lateral raises can’t provide. When you’re standing upright raising dumbbells to your sides you’re going to lose the tension on your shoulders if you go any higher then parallel with the floor we’re about 90 degrees from your body. When you lean you create an angle that keeps the tension on your shoulder for the whole exercise while allowing you to raise the dumbbell higher up increasing the range of motion for your contraction. To perform this exercise start by finding something sturdy that you can hold onto. Grab it with your hand and walk your feet in nice and close to whatever you’re holding on to. Lean away from it until your elbow is almost completely locked out. and then with a dumbbell in your other hand raise to your side until your arm and the dumbbell is parallel with the floor. Whenever raising a dumbbell with your arm straight you want to make sure you keep a slight Bend in your elbow rather than having it completely locked out. Because not only will that help prevent an elbow injury but it also keeps the tension on your muscles rather than your joints. After raising to parallel with the floor lower back down to your side and repeat. Because of leverage this exercise is more challenging then regular lateral raises so you will probably have to use a lighter weight then what you normally use 4 your regular lateral raises. But you should still be shooting for 8 to 10 reps with a heavy weight that’s challenging for you and almost leads to failure by the last rep. If you don’t have something sturdy to comfortably hold on to you can also get similar benefits with a behind-the-back cable lateral raise because the angle that the cable polls on your arm is similar to the angle that gravity will pull on your arm when you’re leaning. Next I want to show you an amazing exercise for your front head the inclined frontal dumbbell raise and with this one I want to show you two very effective variations. For the first one you’ll want to set an incline on a bench at an angle higher than a regular incline bench press and lower than sitting straight up. You want to be leaning back a little higher than a 45 degree angle. Hold both dumbbells at your si
