3 Shoulder Exercises For Skinny Guys / HARDGAINERS!


What’s going on Nation? I had the next installment for the stretch Flex overload series and today We’re going to be focusing on building biggest shoulders now this advanced technique was specifically designed to help you hide gain is build muscle by creating a stronger mind muscle connection but anyone can take advantage of this technique to bust through muscle building plateau and if you missed the last video in the series Focusing on jess. I will link to that down in the info section below so today once again You’re going to be performing a [try] set of three different exercises The first exercise will place the majority of the resistance during the negative when the delts are fully stretched The second exercise will place the resistance on the delts when fully flexed and then after the deltoids have been pre Exhausted with the first two specific movements the third exercise will place the maximum load Possible on all three delts when they know they’ll be at their weakest point and do the majority of the work rather than other muscles Taking over the movement so in a nutshell the first two exercises will help establish a stronger mind muscle connection And the third one will destroy the shoulders using as much weight as possible [as] for the routine itself [you’re] going to perform eight to ten reps per exercise and complete four rounds of all three movements Only resting 60 to 90 seconds after [you] complete one round of all three exercises Remember guys. This is a try set. So there is no rest between exercises And you’re going to complete four total rounds now Let’s get started the first exercise is [going] to be working on the stretch. I’m going to a single arm Dumbbell Raise on a flat bench and the way to perform this movement guys is you’re going to lay on a bench [I] Like to put one arm underneath for stability to kind of hold on to just like this And you want to keep obviously your body as flat as possible You [don’t] be leaned over like this or lean back you want to have your shoulder facing the ceiling So maybe do this real [quick] just to make sure in the right position And if you want to adjust your feet to lock yourself in that’s okay, [too] Also, remember this exercise is going to be a bit more difficult than doing your standard raise because of the position We’re in We have constant Force on the the muscle the entire time for the entire movement so what you’re going to do is grab your dumbbell and again You don’t want to have your shoulder rotated forward like this try to keep it back much as you can and then from this position You’re going to come up and Go all [the] way to the top and then remember you get the most muscle damage and the negative so you want to control that Movement on the way down and then at the very bottom like this [because] we’re going to feel that deep stretch in the deltoids Also guys this is going to be the hottest part of the movement Initiating the actual lift of the dumbbell so from here to here this is one part of the movement you don’t want to skip you Don’t want to be using momentum to bring the dumbbell up like this you want to come down Feel that stretch and make sure you’re using weight that’s heavy enough that you can get a good workout, but also control throughout the entire range of motion So really quick guys. I’m going to show you what it looks like from the back by switching arms So I’m going to lay on the bench like I said grab underneath just like this and then once you’re in position All [the] way down make sure your body is straight Come all the way down bring it [all] the way [to] the top and Then control it the entire time controlling the negative and make sure you’re not using momentum at the start of the movement on every single repetition The second exercise is going to work on targeting the muscles in the most flexed position now unlike the first exercise We felt the majority of the resistance at the bottom of the movement because now we’re standing up You’re not going to feel that flex to get to the top. So we’re going to do is a lateral raise to front raise We’re going to hold it for about two seconds at the top of each position Flexing and squeezing the muscles as hot as we can and one repetition Only counts after you complete one front and one lateral raise. So what you’re going to do is stand just like this dumbbells in front of you like this palms facing down Lift it up to the front hold for two seconds come back down. Go out to the side Bring it up hold for two seconds Come back down bring it to the front Come back up hold for two seconds Come back down bring it to the side come back up and hold for two seconds you guys will notice I’m not doing this on this movement. I’m not doing this on this movement. I’m in full control Bringing the weight up flexing as hot as I can for those two seconds Coming down and then repeating so the lateral portion of the movement, and they’re going to complete all [your] repetitions. Just like that Now that [we’ve] worked on establishing a better mind muscle connection with your shoulders using the stretch in the flex It’s time to overload the shoulder complex to Force some serious muscle Growth and what better way to do that then with an overhead Press I’m going to show you guys two different ways to do the overhead press depending on what your goal is Now if you’re just trying to lift as [much] weight as possible To overload the shoulders as much as possible the best thing for you to do is going to be the barbell Overhead press and the way you’re going to perform this movement is you’re going to hold on like you normally would so your hands about Shoulder width or just about outside of shoulder width and once you get into place You’re going to come underneath the barbell like this And you’re going to focus on pressing the weight [over] [your] head by keeping your glutes tight your core tight and not using momentum To press up and push your head through and then come back down to the starting position and repeat for reps now I will say that [if] you get towards the end of your set so let’s say you’re doing [ten] repetitions If you get to eight, and you’re styling to fatigue, but you want to get those last two It’s okay excuse a little bit of momentum on those last two reps to kind of self spot and get that weight in the air Just make sure that when you get to [the] top you pause for [a] second after you walk out and then control that negative on the way down and Repeat for the last rep control that negative on the way down and then rock your weight Now obviously guys would be going really heavy, and you want to use a weightlifting belt to help with core stability That’s okay, too Now for those of you guys who want to make sure you’re targeting more the rear deltoids neither. It’s a lagging area for you I recommend using dumbbells the standing Dumbbell overhead press Will always target more real rear deltoid than any other variation of this movement I actually have a [VS.] Series video where I compare the science? Explaining this for the overhead press [with] the barbell in the dumbbells and I’ll link to that video down in the info section below so for the dumbbell version guys Same exact thing if you want to obviously you can wear your weight [belt] again what you’re going to do is bring those dumbbells up? You’re going to hold them to the side of your body like this so with the barbell you’re in front with dumbbells They’re in line with your head which activates more rear deltoids. you’re going to press up Come back down bring the dumbbells all the way down and come back up and repeat [for] reps And that’s how you complete the third exercise and the stretch Flex overload Alright guys, so that wraps up your shoulder workout And it should only take you 20 to 25 minutes max to complete The idea behind this series is to get you in and out of the gym as fast as possible while dealing maximum muscle damage Regrowth because as a hard gainer you don’t want to be burning too many calories with long workouts You need those calories to build muscles. You want to keep as much of them as possible also Make sure you’re challenging yourselves with heavy weights You guys ask me all the time in the comments section How much weight should I be using the answer is that on every? Set you should use the maximum weight you can handle for those eight to ten reps So if you can go heavier and round two then increase the weight But if your form is breaking down because you’re starting to fatigue then you might have to go a bit light up One last thing if you’re not a hot gain up and want to add this workout to your current shoulder training program Try adding two finisher rounds at the end of your next shoulder workout you enjoyed the video be sure to show some love by Smashing that like button and leave a comment below so I know which muscle group You guys want to see covered next in this video series Click that notification bell you never miss a new video upload and as always more good stuff coming soon See you guys hey, what’s up guys?

  2. damn u describe every single thing so smoothly ur videos r so uselful i get so much knowledge about lifting by seeing ur videos keep making videos bro love u..

  3. btw im having hard time in developing my triceps n bicep brachiallas that sits between biceps and triceps please help me out

  4. This is actually a good channel man. I usually watch athlean X, but it seem like he's run out of things to talk about, so he focuses on mistakes nobody makes. But Scotts videos are simple, helpful, and not overcomlicated. Subscribed

  5. hey Scott, im pretty thin but Ive got a muffin top aka belly. how do i trim it down without burning too much calories while doing cardio. im pretty sure diet plays a huge role as well.

  6. Scott, how long should I do this routine? Until I see the results I want? Is there a recommended time period to do it and then rest for a week or so?

  7. I want to increase my weight but I'm nursing a fractured femur which limits the amount of weight I can move with one hand when I go to my station on crutches. It sucks but I can't think of anything else to do besides having someone grab weights for me which isn't a luxury for me at the moment

  8. as hardgainers we don't wanna be burning too many calories with long workouts but what about body fat over 12% mine is 14% ?

  9. great video, I'm a hardgainer and a skinny guy; you meantion not to spend much time in the gym. I always keep my workouts between 45-50 minutes, is that good or too long?

  10. Its a fast Workout, but its extremly intense, with no pause between those 24-30 repetitions. As a Softgainer, id probably burn more calories this way than how i usually train, cuz i rarely use supersets

  11. I've been subbed to this channel for quite some time now, I have to say that this has to be one of the greatest fitness channels there's on Youtube. Your excercises and explanations have really helped me build muscle and strenght (even though I was skinny as fuck when I started about 3 years ago). I'll keep watching your vids, there's always something new to learn!

  12. I am a tall and lean natural build and it takes time to put on size.  I normally warm up on the cross trainer for 6-8 minutes – should I stop this to save calories?

  13. Thnx Scott! Is there a way to do the first excersise with a cable machine, so that you're also working on the core at the same time as it is hardly engaged now?

  14. Hi Scott! I want to thank you for providing such incredible information and content on YouTube and instagram. You are my favorite YouTuber because you provide quality content and you don't appear to objectify women in your videos or other social media platforms. I'd love to get some tips on strengthening my lower back. I'll continue to stay tuned. 🙂

  15. The way it's being phrased it almost sounds like we have to do (STRETCH FLEX OVERLOAD)x4, but as the idea was tiring the muscles first and then overloading I should assume this to be STRETCH *4, FLEX *4 and OVERLOAD*4, right?

  16. Thanks for the Video! Excuse me for the intrusion, I would love your opinion. Have you ever tried – Chireetler Deepest Relaxation Rule (do a google search)? It is a smashing one of a kind guide for learning to grow muscle when you are naturally thin without the headache. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my best friend Jordan after many years got amazing success with it.

  17. Hye man. first of all amazing video's the Exercises For Skinny Guys serries really help me out. Buth i have one problem i had a shoulder operation a year ago and the first Exercise single arm dumbbell raise on the bench i have a really hard time performing. cause i can't lie on the bench the way i should on my left shoulder. Making me do the Exercise not the way i should. my question is. Is there a replacement Exercise??

  18. good trainer with good videos he say everything from 0 what need to do for exersices.. he talk
    every moment he do its really perfect videos ….good luck

  19. My tip for the lateral raise and front raise is this… Do all the "raises" in between! 🙂 Like, do front raise, then "front and just slightly a little more lateral raise", keep making the raises a little more lateral till they are about 30 degrees from completely lateral (I'd read/seen that completely lateral raises aren't good for your rotator cuff), and then work your way back to the front.

  20. Hey Scott. When I first watched this video I thought maybe to add another exercise to this triset. But after doing the chest workout for Hard Gainers and having 2 days of sore muscles I wanted to give it a try. I did already a lot of shoulder workouts before but man, this one is killing you and I definitely didn't want to add a 4th exercise. 👍
    Greetings from Germany.

  21. Great videos mate, really helpful and you always have a positive cheerful attitude that really helps and motivates!
    Keep up the good job!
    So may I ask, I was wondering what is better when you try to build muscle mass and you are on bulking period: Do 15-13-10 or something else? Some people say that 15 are a lot for mass building.
    Thanks in advance!

  22. Hi Scott, thanks for these hardgainers videos! Quick Q, my dumbbell shoulder press and bent over row weights dropped quite a bit after I started going the tri-sets (vs when I did them at the beginning of my routine). I feel like my shoulders and back and quite fatigues by the first two parts of the exercises. Is this normal? Thanks again!

  23. Thanks Scott for putting the info about your playlists in. I've been watching different types of your videos randomly but watching a playlist series will really help with guidance and the knowledge going in. 👍🏻

  24. Hey Scott i've been having some trouble targeting my rear delts specifically not using my rhomboids I've been doing face poles laying on the ground..and that's worked pretty good but do you have any other suggestions

  25. Yu da yu da best…! But isn't Arnold Press better for overload than the straight up dumbell press? Anyway – going to the gym to do it now… Talk later!

  26. These are awesome Scott! I want to incorporate these workouts in the PPL program without spending too many calories in the gym. Any tips?

  27. I tried the chest tri set work out and tricep tri set work out except i replaced dips with tricep pushdown. Am i over training if i do 2 muscle groups with tri sets of 4 sets in one work out or should i do 1 tri set for 1 muscle group in one work out. I am also a hard gainer

  28. It would be interesting to hear your take on some of the old school movements from guys like Vince Gironda like the W press and the Scott Press

  29. @ScottHermanFitness Would you recommend the same workout every shoulder day (until a plateau is reached) or do an alternative workout every other shoulder day. I'm following your Shoulder 1/abs, Legs, rest, chest/tris, shoulder 2/abs, back/bis, rest 6-week split.

  30. I tried them out 2 day and let me put it this way, It’s a deep burn daaamn💪💪💪💪 But I needed some small break at the end damm my shoulders i destroyed hah tyvm for the Exercises

  31. I saw a video saying not to flare your shoulders out wide with the dumbbell shoulder press. Something about stress on the shoulder joint that can lead to injury. Can you help me understand whether or not that is misinformation?

  32. I don't understand why an overhead press would work the posterior delts. Maybe the act of holding your elbows back requires they're engaged, but that's more of a stabilizer thing, and it's not a very safe position for the AC. There are plenty of other, safer ways to hit the rear delts.

  33. I have to thank you for doing these videos. I trained for a while years ago with limited success. After using your suggested workouts I have tripled my rate of growth and strength. And I'm hoping to continue with it, and I've been sharing these videos with friends and so far we are all seeing results quickly. And yes we make sure every time our lifts are clean and controlled.

  34. I've tried this TRI-SET and it's amazing! As well as the chest and quads TRI-SETs. I have a question: If we use these kind of exercises (a TRI-SET per day), we will be training our muscles once a week. Is this OK for hardgainers, Scott, or should we be combine, for example, chest with back or with biceps? What do you think? Thanks for all your videos!

  35. I don't get it. How does the overhead press, be it barbell or dumbbell, target rear delt? It is kinda stretched in the upper position, and does no work whatsoever. The first exercise did target it, sure, but the presses…

  36. baaaaaahbell overhead press 🤘. Most people at my gym do this sitting down, leaving the core out. Not sure why

  37. Been listening to Scott for about a month now. Lucky for me i found the skinny fat part. Anyone else doing it?
