An intense, amazing shoulder workout is your key to that legendary “V-Taper” look. You know the look… narrow in the hips and wide in the shoulders, master your workout and you will become the master of the “V-Taper” look.
only are the shoulders responsible for that coveted “V-Taper” look, but the
main function of the shoulders aka deltoids or delts as some may call them is
to help lift the arms to the front, side, back and to press overhead.
There are three parts that make up the shoulder, the anterior
head, medial head, posterior head. It is important to remember when working the
shoulders, that we work the three parts of the muscle grouping equally. By
doing this, it will keep all three parts of this group from developing an
imbalance. Always remember to keep your body in balance… your body is happier
with you when you do this.
The anterior head is located at the front of the shoulder, the medial head is to the side (middle) of the shoulder and the posterior head is located to the back of the shoulder.
For the anterior head of the shoulder, any type of pressing
exercise works well. The medial head responds well to any type of pushing out
to the side exercise, the posterior head likes exercises that have you pushing
to the back.
