What are some of your favourite shoulder exercises?
Wow, all of them! But my preferred one is the Arnold shoulder press.
Do you work your shoulders on their own or group them with other body parts?
I normally have a day for shoulder training only, but it depends on my goal at that point of my training.
During off season, I work them out alone. During competition prep, I mix them with another muscle group.
What are your top 3 tips when training your shoulders?
- Think about the contraction of the muscle.
- Don’t do it fast.
- Control the movement to do it on full range and breath!
What are some common mistakes girls make when training their shoulders that you are aware of?
I think one of the most common mistakes is not training them enough because they are worried to grow and stop looking feminine.
On the gym floor, I’m really trying to tell them that working shoulders is just as important as any other body part.
What does a typical Shoulder workout look like for you?
A typical shoulder workout for me is trying to cover all the muscles on the shoulder:
I usually do:
- Front raises,
- Shoulder press,
- Lateral raises,
- Up right rows and a few other exercises.
The repetitions, sets and tempo depends of my goal at that point, get leaner or build up the muscle.
