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.
