Cavaliere explains how to get bigger shoulders with this 1 exercise.
How to Get Bigger Shoulders
Unlike some exercises that Cavaliere usually talks about, this time he wants to utilise the heavier dumbbells for the 1 exercise that could be the answer on how to get bigger shoulders.
- Abduction Row
To hit the middle delt you need to abduct the shoulder, getting the arm away from the body, by rowing and not pushing.
This exercise will help you lift heavier weight because you are getting a little bit of assistance from the rear delt and your back musculature. At the same time, you are minimising the lat contribution by getting the arm away from the body.
Check out Jeff Cavaliere’s video below to understand exactly how to perform the exercise.
