    Shoulder workout today

    I have been trying to get back to the gym after covid/ lockdown. I did a should workout today and wanted some opinions on what I did. weather it was good or bad etc our anything that you would change.

    I was trying to do all workouts as 6-8 reps. I am trying to build a bit more muscle.

    Arnold press

    16Kg 7 reps
    14Kg 6 reps
    14Kg 6 reps

    this was the first workout I did and felt 16Kg was too heavy so dropped down to 14Kg

    Lateral raise

    8Kg 8 reps
    8Kg 8 reps
    8Kg 8 reps

    Front raise

    8Kg 8 reps
    8Kg 8 reps
    8Kg 8 reps

    Shrugs

    20Kg 8 reps
    20Kg 8 reps
    20Kg 8 reps

    Thanks for advice

    I wouldn't devote an entire workout to such a small muscle group. Other than that, it's not that meaningful to judge 1 workout in the context of a program.

    First workout after lockdown should be chest.

    Plus shrugs of course.

    Just make sure you're following a balanced routine, otherwise. He was taking a stab at the predominant/exclusive bench emphasis in many lifters' minds.

    Honestly, if you want big shoulders: bench heavy, row heavy, and do lateral raises. That's going to be a better approach than a bunch of machines or lighter isolations.

    EDIT: At least, I'm pretty happy with my shoulder development and that's basically all I do for them (in addition to OHP).
