I usually try and start with a very powerful compound exercise like push press or shoulder press and then work my entire shoulder: Front raise, side raise, rear raise and some SITS (rotator work).

I also include traps in with shoulders because they require a little TLC for me.

yeah thats what i do too..supersets! it does cut down on time and its more intense of a workout. how many exercises do you do per muscle group? i do 3. what kinds of shoulder exercises do you do? i do shoulder press, push press and front raises.

Hey,

It's pretty good, I mean I do like pairing the two opposing muscle groups together so it cuts down on the total workout time (supersets). That way you can jump back and forth and save time.

Shoulders and Legs is a big day; sometimes I put them on seperate days to give my chest and back time to recover before going back to it.

I actually made the same switch recently because I had been doing the other routine for so long. It is extremely important to vary your routine often!
