Beach Muscle Shoulder Workout For Bigger Delts

June 06, 2017

Every day is beach season.

No matter what time of year it is, the classic V-taper can help you look stronger and leaner and that physique starts with creating cannonball delts. Depending on where you’re reading this, you may not be currently experiencing beautiful 90-degree weather. However, for a moment forget about “beach season” as a time of year and more of a mentality. Although your specific training focus may change, your effort should remain constant; whether you’re three months out from flip flops and sun block, or in the middle of winter.

Like the development of any muscle, programming a shoulder workout should be simple. However, that does not mean a basic press and a few multi-angle raises will deliver their intended results. A little variation can go a long way to helping you reach your goals.


Recently we met up with physique competitor Thomas Gibson, locally known as “Captain Muscle.” Our goal was to hammer all angles of our delts to help top off our beach season V-taper.

Thomas puts all he has in every training session, and continually chases his dreams to be the best he can. He says, “Leave nothing on the table, and exhaust every opportunity you have in this life.” If you want to train for visible abs or a bicep pump for a moment, then bring it. But, after the summer-season has come and gone, don’t lose your fire.

Check out the following workout we affectionately call “The Cannonball Maker” to help cap your summer physique.

Instant Training Tips and Workout Notes:

1) During your giant set, rest as little as possible from one exercise to the next.  Once you are finished, rest 30-45 seconds and begin again.

2) If you do not have a high incline press machine, use a 75-degree angle bench with dumbbells.

3) If you do not have a lying rear delt machine, use a bench with a slight incline and lay face down.

Leg day; most lifters either love it or hate it.   However, the majority of us, no matter how we feel about grueling through rep after rep of squats until the need to find the nearest trash can for quick breakfast disposal, will do it anyway. One might say leg day is, “a necessary evil.” […]

Marshmallow, chocolate, and graham cracker are made for each other; but, what if you added protein to the equation? We reached out to our one of our top Barbell Club members to create […]

Build a Classic Physique with Strongman Training for Bodybuilders

“Bodybuilding is dead!”   “Bodybuilding just isn’t what it used to be.”  I’ve heard this complaint so many times from so many people that I’ve all but quit looking for the next Arnold. The next Lou.  The next Franco.  However, I realized that these individuals don’t define my beloved sport and that I’m just clinging […]
