Get Bigger Shoulders With 5 Easy Moves

Our Advice

An aching shoulder often means impingement. This is usually aggravated with overhead pressing, but pressing on an angle can take tension off the joints. Wedge a bar into a corner and press one end of it on a 45-degree angle (like you’re throwing a lever)—this is called a landmine press. You should also prioritize pulling in your back workouts and do more rear-delt work, as that will help correct the muscle imbalance that set up the injury.
