SEXY SHOULDERS

It is the season for those sexy sleeveless tops that you know you like to wear; are your shoulders ready to be exposed?

To sculpt round sexy shoulders, you need to work all three areas of the deltoid: anterior, medial, and posterior. The following workout program will allow you to do just that. Perform this program twice a week, alternating between Workout A and Workout B, allowing 48 hours between workouts for recovery. You will be seeing those shoulders pop in 4-6 weeks.
Exercise                                                        Sets                 Reps

WORKOUT A
Smith Machine Overhead Raise
  or Barbell Overhead Raise                        3                  8-10
Bent Over Lateral Raise                             3                10-12
Front Raise w/weight plate                        3                12-15                              
   or Dumbbells        

WORKOUT B
Arnold Press
