Video: How to get ripped like Hercules Part 5 – Shoulder Day

You'll have to grow the beard yourself though...

Directed by Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, Horrible Bosses) and starring Dwayne Johnson's muscles, Ian McShane, Dwayne Johnson's beard, John Hurt and even more of Dwayne Johnson's massive muscles, Hercules is a brand spankin' new action adventure film that will tell the tale of the tormented, earth-bound Demigod.


At 42 years of age, Dwayne Johnson is in remarkable shape. At a considerably younger age, JOE is not quite in as remarkable shape.

We wanted to change that fact and so, ahead of the release of the excellent-looking Paramount film Hercules, we headed along to chat to our good friends at RAW Condition Gym, trainers Kane Kearns and Andy Hickey, to find out just how we could go about getting into hunky Herculean shape.

In a series of five wonderful workout videos, the lads have focused on a different part of the body each day to help you get defined like Dwayne. The experts have already taken us through the workout for the arms in Part 1, the back in Part 2, the chest in Part 3, the legs in Part 4, and today they're talking us through how to get our shoulders in super shape. Here's the workout in full...


H.S. Shoulder Press 4x12.10.10.8

Seated DB Shoulder Press 3x10

Standing Side Lat Raises 4x12.12.12.12. (Triple Drop Set on Each)


One Arm Cable Side Lat Raise 3x20

Reverse Fly Machine 4x12
