Few men relish shoulder day, but neglect it at your peril. Broadening out up top will slim your waist and carve out that coveted V-shape. Also, you’ll be pleased to know, if you’ve never properly tested them, gains will come quicker than anywhere else on your body.

The benefits of working you shoulders aren’t limited to just gains though. A study by Karolinska Hospital’s Department of Orthopedics found that when patients with recurrent shoulder dislocations performed exercises that targeted the rotator-cuff muscles and the deltoid, they were relieved from pain and the number of dislocations they suffered were limited. Put simply, the shoulder is made up of two groups of muscles: extrinsic muscles, which originate from the torso, and attach to the bones of the shoulder, and intrinsic muscles, which originate from the scapula and/or clavicle, and attach to the humerus.

Your deltoid is made up of three main sets of muscle fibres: anterior, lateral and posterior, which are connected by a very thick tendon and are anchored into a V-shape. The deltoid muscle is primarily responsible for arm rotation, but it is also responsible for stopping dislocation and injury to the humerus when carrying heavy loads.

Teres Major
Teres major is a small muscle that’s located on the underside of the upper arm. It’s sometimes called “lat’s little helper” because of its partnership with the latissimus dorsi.

Rotator Cuff
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons, including teres minor, that surround the shoulder joint. They keep the head of your upper arm bone firmly within the shallow socket of the shoulder.
