Give yourself a raise! Make your delts pop in less time than it takes to boil an egg.
When your goal is to train shoulders, but time is tight, don’t bother with overhead presses. If you’re already reasonably strong, the minutes you take to work up to a challenging load is time better spent training the delts full force, and you won’t leave yourself much chance of doing other exercises afterward.

Instead, focus on raises, which will begin pumping your delts with little warmup required. This approach also allows you to train shoulders at home with just a bench and dumbbells. Use the “Delts in 20” workout, which you can complete in less time than it takes to cook an egg. Go ahead and try it: Put the egg on, hit the workout, and enjoy some post-workout protein afterward.
Quick Tip: Stretching a muscle after training it flushes more blood into the area, improving nutrient delivery, which helps it grow.
