Tip: Do High-Tension Reps for Big Delts

With this partial/isolation superset method, do slow high-tension partials on one exercise followed immediately by an isolation exercise.

When it comes to building muscle, full range of motion isn't always best. You need to create tension for an extended period of time. In this superset for shoulders, the first exercise is performed using partials without any acceleration in the rep speed. Keep the speed fairly slow and don't lock-out at the top or rest at the bottom.

Follow the primary lift with an isolation exercise, in this case full-ROM lateral raises. Do 8-10 reps on both the partials and the isolation exercise.
