In this video, IFBB Pro, Antoine Vaillant, takes us through one of his typical off-season shoulder workouts at his gym, Pure Muscle & Fitness.
To increase the intensity of the workout, his fellow residents at the Muscle Mansion, Quinton Eriya and Noah Hamilton, join him.
The workout is full of intensity tactics that push the muscles of the shoulder past the point of failure.
Be sure to watch the video and give the workout below a try the next time you train shoulders.
