A Few Tips To Improve Your Deltoid Muscles

The deltoid muscles are in the shoulder area and create the rounded appearance of the shoulder. The three heads of the deltoid muscle are attached to the upper part of the arm bone. Working out the deltoid muscles can help you build up your shoulder area and increase your upper body strength. These exercises will help exercise the deltoid muscles safely.

Seated Barbell Press: This exercise works out the front deltoids as well as the triceps. You'll need to perform this exercise in a seated position. Hold the barbell a bit wider than shoulder width. Push the barbell straight up until your arms are fully extended above your head. Lower the barbell back down and repeat.

Seated Dumbbell Press: This exercise, just like the last one, works out the deltoids and triceps. Sit upright and take a dumbbell in each hand. Start with them level to your shoulders with the palms of your hands facing outwards. Place your feet flat on the floor with your feet shoulder width apart. Press the dumbbells straight up until your arms are fully extended. Lower the dumbbells back down to the starting position and repeat.

Side Lateral Raises: This exercise concentrates on the side deltoids, but it also works out the front deltoid muscles and the forearms. Stand straight with a dumbbell in each hand. Your palms should be facing in toward your legs. Lift your arms straight out toward your sides with a slight bend to your elbows. Stop just above shoulder level, lower the dumbbells back down and repeat.

Front Lateral Raises: This movement isolates the front deltoids. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Hold the dumbbells at your sides with your palms facing toward your legs. Raise the dumbbells to the front of your body until they are just above shoulder level. Lower the dumbbells back down and repeat.
