Day 314 - Body Beast Bulk: Shoulders "Bulk Phase" Progress

Below is the improvement I saw on Bulk: Shoulders throughout the "Bulk" phase of Body Beast. My shoulders have always been a body part that I have had trouble gaining strength with. The shoulders get a lot of work during Bulk: Chest, so this routine is a bit more focused on fly-type moves, but works great to pump up the shoulders!

I found this routine to be the hardest to increase resistance by any significant means. There are so many 'fly' exercises in this routine that requires careful consideration into weight selection, as going too heavy can injure the shoulder very easily. I am glad to have increased strength on my Arnold Press!
