Wide grip upright rows 

Why should you do wide grip upright rows? 

Getting Boulder shoulders is not easy, in fact it is tough, more so for females who are afraid of lifting too heavy! 

It is advised not to use momentum during this exercise as it would hinder proper muscle growth. Wide grip engages the middle head of the deltoid(shoulder muscle) and hence giving you that rounded shoulder look. 

Try to go slow, focusing on that middle delt that you are trying to growth. Concentrate on the mind-muscle connection and feel the burn. 

This exercise is also good for people who suffered from rotator cuff injury (like me!) I tore both my rotator cuff about half a year back so this exercise allows me to build my shoulder and not compromising my injury or allowing it to happen again! 

Hope this helps! 

Try it! 4 sets of 20 reps! 💪🏻💪🏻

    • Hi! The close grip to me it stresses my wrists as well!!! The close grip allows the elbow to go higher which some people feels it’s better to engage the delts. The wide grip is less stress in the rotator cuffs and works the traps too! You can try the wide grip and if it works for you then great!! Just rmb to go slow. Don’t rush the reps!!! H
