MuscleTech-sponsored athlete and Team Bodybuilding.com member Abel Albonetti is a huge fan of high-volume workouts designed to test your limits. He knows they help build muscle for a balanced physique and push your training intensity to new heights.
“This workout is something I do to bust through plateaus,” explains Albonetti. “I don’t like to use this workout every single week, because it is extremely taxing on your muscles. But if you feel like your gains are slowing, or you just want to kill your shoulders, try this workout.”
If you’ve seen his How to Get Six-Pack Abs Using Supersets workout, you know when Albonetti says it’s a killer, he’s not messing around. With 11 exercises—including supersets, dropsets, and giant sets—this workout is guaranteed to destroy your shoulders.
