Cluster Bombing For Impressive Delts

Let’s face it…nothing says “yes, I train hard and yes, I know I have a cool physique” quite like a great pair of well developed shoulders.  Sure…round glutes…full diamond shaped calves and a lean mid-section definitely finish off a fine physique.

But ass kicking delts on anyone just straight up exemplifies strong, sexy and shapely power! Here is an example of a cluster drop  we use quite often at The Lift simply because…well… it works. This overhead shoulder press cluster gets enough growth volume in without trashing the shoulders for all the other work you have planned for em’ during the rest of the week’s training.

Warm-Up                                                                                                                                                                                                                          —Start W/Blank Bar x 10                                                                                                                                                                                             —Then add a bit more to the bar for a couple more sets

-Get your 60-65% on the bar and go. (I Go-You Go works well here)


Thats 60 reps! Plenty enough to get the job done. You will blow right through those 2-1 sections.

Kind of fun actually. Make sure that your bar drive to overhead on each rep is powerful.

Always finish to locked out and hold that over head position on those latter 2-1 reps

Note: For many people kettlebells may be a bit more shoulder friendly than using a barbell

Try it out and let me know how it goes for you
