P90X Shoulder Exercises

p90x shoulder exercises

You know that feeling after a killer shoulder workout where you go to hop in the shower and it hurts to raise your arms to wash your hair?

Well take that experience and multiply it by 10 and thats what you get with the P90X Shoulder Exercises! You wont even be able to shut the shower curtain, lol. The P90X shoulder workouts are probably one of the best shoulder routines I have ever seen developed. They are not only designed to sculpt the front, side, and rear delts – but the moves are going to benefit you performance in all aspects of fitness rather than just putting on some size.

Genetically I do not have the desirable large round shoulders that stick out past my arms. P90X shoulder exercises changed that for me though! I finally started to develop some serious muscle tone and size!

What Equipment Do I Need?

Resistance Bands VS DumbbellsI personally think that both bands and dumbbells are great options. I prefer the dumbbells since they are a little easier to track your weight/rep progress with the “P90X shoulder exercises”, but bands can be very effective as well. In fact – I went my first 180 days of P90X using only a set of heavy duty resistance bands and the chin-up bar.

If you want to get into the discussion of what is better, you can read my full article on Resistance Bands vs. Dumbbells. This covers the positives and the negatives of both pieces of equipment, as well as which one will get you the best results with P90X.


What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

I get this question a lot when it comes to the P90X workout and the shoulder moves are no different. If you put in the work, you will get the results!

The most effective method to follow for getting the BEST possible results using the P90X shoulder workouts is to show up every single day as scheduled in the P90X workout schedule. Do your absolute best during the workouts and you will begin to notice that diamond shape at the base of your shoulders. You will then start to see the valleys at the top where the 3 deltoids meet. And then finally you will be able to see 3 clearly defined muscles in your shoulder along with some nice veins runnin across them! Thats the fun stuff right there!

Now its time to BRING IT and inspire others to do the same!
