What exercise is best to strengthen deltoid muscles?


Answer by  richmiller3214 (138)

I would recommend a military shoulder press. This exercise requires a barbell with weight on each end. The amount of weight you use is dependent on how strong you are. I would perform about 3-5 sets of between 8-15 reps. Side lateral raises also work to strengthen the deltoids. They require 2 dumbells.

If your just starting out a great workout to build and strengthen the deltoids is a barbell press or a military press. Both primarily target the deltoids but also work although upper body muscle as well. If you want to define your shoulders, do a large amount of reps and sets of some dumbbell flies.

If you are looking for raw strength, I would rely on a basic military press to strengthen your deltoid muscles.


Answer by  CDT (117)

Two types - front delts and rear delts. For front delts you want to stick with either the Dumbbell shoulder presses or the barbell shoulder press. For the Rear Delts, good choices would be either behind the neck press and/or reverse flyes. You probably want to add in some front and lateral raises for good measure as well.

The absolute best is the standing shoulder press. No other exercise does as much for the deltoids. I recommend reading Mark Rippetoe's "Starting Strength" for the best description of how to do a standing shoulder press correctly.

The Deltoid Muscle is along your back shoulder blades. Upright rows are one exercise that helps strength those muscles. Along with incline lateral raises.


Answer by  askanswer (349)

To strengthen the deltoid muscles, you should do overhead presses. Take a barbell or a set of dumbbells and push it over your head to full arm extension.

I'm not sure where the deltoid muscles are. If they're a leg muscle I'd suggest squats and arm muscles I'd suggest using free weights too
