One of the first exercises I ever did was a shoulder press. I remember being told by the doctor after fracturing my clavicle in a mountain biking accident that I needed to build back my strength after having my left arm in a sling for 5 weeks.
At that time, I was 15 years old and couldn’t wait to get back on my bike doing jumps and stunts with my friends by the woods near to where I lived. I set up a weight bench and weights in my garage that my older cousin had given to me. I was eager to build back my strength and improve my mobility.
Within the first week of being cleared to start riding again, I think I was on my bike only a couple of times. I had become infatuated with lifting weights and feeling the burn on my muscles as they reached their maximum capacity. Within the next few weeks and months, my small garage gym had grown. I had a stack of fitness magazines I used to learn new exercises. I enjoyed getting stronger and watching my body become a physique.
Fast forward to today, and that feeling of pressing weight above my head and chasing the feeling of the burn in the muscles is still as alive as ever. This shoulder routine below is a favorite of mine. It focuses on strength and size and addresses all the major heads of the shoulder for balance and proportion.
