    How many sets do you do for shoulders?

    I do 2 exercises per dealt head and 3 sets each exercise for 8 reps to failure. But lately I've switched from Volume Training to the more popular 9 sets per small muscle and 12 for larger muscles and I'm getting a better pump.
    It's my turn.

    Last night I had one helluva shoulder workout -

    started with - dumbell press of 3x15
    - barbell behind neck shoulder press 3x10
    - standing bent over lateral raises 3x10
    - seated bent over lateral raises 3x10
    - single upright side lateral raises 2x10 and 1x15

    This is the best shoulder workout ive ever had...

    I usualy start with 15 reps and end off with 15 - gives me some major pump...

    Good luck bro !
    If everything seems under control... It's not heavy enough.

    I do 6 total sets. Some military presses and some laterals. I do them on chest day so the shoulders get worked good from bench, dips, etc. Therefore, I keep the volume low.

    My training revolves around the heavy compound lift's, mainly squats, presses, pull's and cleans!!! Therefore there is really no NEED to do much direct shoulder training since they are nailed during heavy cleans, or high-pull's !!!

    For ****'s and giggles, everynow and then I will throw in some side raises or seated db presses!!!!

    this is my new routine
    i think it's a bit much and maybe gonna do 3 push press' insteed of 4 but i'l see how it works

    push press (4) 2*12//2*8
    lat raises (2) 2*8-12
    snatches (2) 2*10


    my current is

    Seated military press (3) 3x 8-10
    Shoulder press (3) 3 x 8-12
    Lying shoulder flies (3) 3x8-12
    Cuban press (1) 1x until failure

    this is more but i feel it's working, my shoulders have grown from this but not like they usually do, got pretty big shoulders but i want them more even with my traps

    3 sets
    2 x Military Press
    1 x Side Laterals

    Works wonders
    "High-intensity training is going all-out, not almost all out. It is taking one set to one's absolute limit, not almost to the limit. It is using whatever equipment that is available, not just a machine or group of machines. It is not the words of two or three men, but a commitment to work as hard as possible while in the gym without socializing, resting excessively between sets, or falling prey to the 'this isn't going to work so I'll copy the star' attitude". - Dr Ken Leistner
