Bodyweight work for shoulders

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I've noticed that my shoulder development is pretty poor compared to the rest of my upper body. I was wondering if people could recommend based on experience the best bodyweight exercises for developing the traps and delts.

 

I currently only really do pike push up variations that target the shoulders.

 

Thanks

Handstand pushups.

 

 

Yeah sorry I should have been more specific, my shoulders are only strong enough to control the negative in a handstand push up, they aren't strong enough to push back up

Place a stack of books such that they'll be under your head during a handstand.  Do handstand pushups with just the limited range of motion that touches your head to the stack of books.  As you get stronger, take away a book to extend the range of motion.

Do slow, 10-second negatives.
