Cut Like Cutler Exercise Videos – Shoulders & Traps

Cut Like Cutler Navigation

On Day 4 of each week, you’ll train Shoulders & Traps. Before you begin your workout, check out the Cut Like Cutler exercise videos to learn the proper technique for each lift.

Seated Military Press

Try setting the seated bench at a slight incline. Press the dumbbells overhead and pause to squeeze at the top. Seated military press will work your entire shoulder and is great to perform at the beginning of your workout.

Dumbbell Side Lateral Raises

To really target the side delts, start with the dumbbells slightly in front you at the start of the lift.

Dumbbell Front Raises

Hit your anterior delts with dumbbell front raises. Take a neutral grip and bring up one dumbbell at a time.

Upright Rows

Take a shoulder width grip to activate your traps and rear delts. Use your hands as hooks and pull the bar up with your elbows.

Dumbbell Shrugs

Dumbbell shrugs are a simple but effective exercise to isolate your traps. Be careful not to roll your shoulders back. Simply move up and down to target the traps.

Arnold Press

This is not your typical shoulder press. Arnold presses activate the overall development of your shoulder caps, working your shoulder from all angles.

Reverse Pec Deck

Blast your rear delts with the reverse pec deck. These are great for adding big size to your anterior deltoids.

Barbell Front Raises

For front delt separation, nothing beats barbell front raises. There’s no need to raise the bar overhead. Bringing the bar up to eye level is best for isolating the anterior deltoids.

Standing Military Press

This is a classic upper body mass builder. Push the bar all the way up and drive the head through. Be sure to finish the movement to get the best results.

Cable Delt Raises

Resist the urge to go too heavy so that you can’t use good form and see the best results. If the weight is too heavy, you’ll feel your body pulling side to side and front to back. With the right weight and form, you’ll see big improvements in the appearance of your shoulder caps.

Barbell Shrugs

Take your hands shoulder width apart and squeeze up and back at the top. You’ll see big overall development of the traps.
