Pec Tear = Comp prep over. Continue shred? skinnykant 8 1 yearMick_MPH (1): @skinnykant There are many variables that will be at play to continue a cut and retain your muscle - You said you increased your calories. Go up to baseline and leave calories there for atleast 2 weeks. Due to being in a deficit for so long your metabolic rate would of slowed. Not only this you will re-sensitize hormonal balance. Studies show re-feeds don't have to much of effect on the metabolic system. You need food increased for a longer...
Trap bar Hambo 3 2 yearsmikew (11493): @Hambo your question makes no sense. Why not just poke around the web? It appears that the terms are used interchangeably. Here is a video of a Trap Bar *and* a Hex Bar... it's a Hex Trap bar:

How to fix rounded shoulders airawear 1 2 yearsairawear (4): Full blog post: How To Fix Rounded Shoulders Hey guys, Some of us have been hunching forward for a huge part of our lives because of the way we work. This is especially so if you have been working in front of the computer for a large part of your life (studying, working, playing games etc.) As a result of this hunching, you may have developed rounded shoulders, causing your posture to be hunched forward. In this post, I am going to...
21 Shoulder Stretches That Provide Relief airawear 1 2 yearsairawear (4): Full Blog Post here: Hey guys, I just published this article about shoulder stretches you can do anytime (very work-friendly!) but I wanted to share a short-and-sweet version here for you. You must be either a young kid or a truly healthy person to have never gotten stiff shoulders in your entire life. Unfortunately for most of us, we don’t fit the above bill. That...

Strange shoulder problem, scapula position Marcane 2 2 yearsWest165 (574): Could be atrophy of the serratus anterior. It looks like your acromions are popping out too, no idea why that could be. But I wouldn't take advice about this kind of stuff on here. Go see a doctor.

Building a V-SHAPE back with dumbbells? Kev521 9 3 yearsEagleRare10 (838): I second @wannabemuscular. If you can get or have access to a pull up bar you should be able to make a lot of progress with that, though you'll want to start adding weight (as simple as throwing some books in a backpack or something) once you can hit a lot of bodyweight reps.

Push Press vs Strict Over Head Press zacharyc 1 4 yearszacharyc (61): Which one, if any, is better for hypertrophy and strength of the shoulders? Currently push pressing as my main compound lift for my shoulders as I like the movement as its quick and powerful but in terms of hypertrophy and strength will it improve those factors better than strict over head pressing or not? Thanks in advance. Zach
Is this normal? Myofascial release. Rawsteel 9 4 yearsFiremanSi (42408): @Rawsteel Increasing ur internal or external rotation is not something u can change with a few stertches and trigger point releases. It's like strength u can't just get drastically stronger in a week these things take ALOT of time. So keep doing what ur doing, the fact u've had some success already is a credit to ur effort so far. It is most like not just that.. u seem to have well developed pecs.. tight pecs can lead to internal rotation of...

School barbell and military press Hambo 11 4 yearsMMB (3616): @Hamer93 @SOLARSUPLEX without doing a pushpress, if you don't contract legs and glutes you won't be stable and your OHP will be a little weaker. It's like the leg drive on bench press. Overall stable fondation will provide more power! Without getting a momentum like the push press. My 2 cents.
Androgen Receptors Deltoid TimmothyGen 1 4 yearsTimmothyGen (1780): Nvm I found Grizzlys response in the EK question thread.
Pull overs for serratus work bicepKing 2 4 yearseknight (58109): Or you could just do a movement that directly hits your serratus on your push day (since they are scapular protractors) like scap push-ups. Either way, they're a "push" not a "pull." -3X
Military press Hambo 2 4 yearsTimmothyGen (1780): I guess yeah you don't want a barbell to the chin do ya? Make a log here so you can post your questions and progress.
shoulder help Sheila 24 4 yearsSheila (1): thank you. I guess when I lose some more weight they will show up better like the front and rear. I tried that machine for the first time yesterday and didn't really like it but may try it again. my lateral raises I should have add are done with a straight arm
Need help to bring shoulders out anteis99 11 4 yearsTyrannosaurusFlex (2641): Shoulder shocker is brutal for sure. Defo recommend!
DB bench and shoulder help Powerbuilder 5 4 yearsPowerbuilder (1): So normally I would use the 24kgs/50lbs for sets of 8 but as soon as it gets heavy or to the last few, my shoulder loses stability, I've dropped the weight and As soon as I start to struggle or it becomes challenging, it loses stability.
this machine csizemore21 4 4 yearsKansas___Boyyyyy (3361): From my understanding free weights are the way to go and some consider the OHP to be a secondary compound lift

Under developed right delt/trap Jwooddb 17 4 yearsJwooddb (4): That's my thought, I can see the muscle so it should grow. I will book into the doctor this week and ask some questions. Thank you for your advise.
Serratus DOMS after OHP Hamer93 4 4 yearsHamer93 (9553): Thanks for the response, helps with peice of mind! I think it's where I don't normally do heavy OHP so it's new DOMS. We all know when you get a muscle hard that you haven't worked for a while the DOMS is a tad worse
Bench press relative to OHP darklight79 8 4 yearseknight (58109): ^^ I feel like these are a bit outdated, but they do provide a frame of reference. -3X
slingshot is amazing for bad shoulders csizemore21 27 4 yearsstrauss (31): I can definitely see that I have a shoulder injury and like I said I use it and find it very helpful to allow you to push yourself further with heavier weight
Uneven Body Parts correra911 6 4 yearsSOLARSUPLEX (8314): The only thing i could say is use dumbbells for everything. That way the shoulder that is under developed cannot be helped by the other shoulder.

who military presses the most on here lol csizemore21 23 4 yearsBucky (3871): @csizemore21 I like seated just so I don't put any strain on my lower back with heavier weights, but for higher rep work I do standing. military press though I do 3x5x175 still.
side lateral raises 3 times a week thephenomenon 12 4 yearseknight (58109): ^^agreed. When you have a good nugget of info, don't just drop it and run, lol. We all learn from this process so feel free to expand like you just did. -3X
Push Routine, Bench, OHP Jsn3004 6 5 yearsJsn3004 (3265): @hamer93 Yeah I was skeptical about shrugs on my push day but I think I'll just move it towards my pull day. But my pull day looks like this Pull Downs Barbell Row Dumbbell Rows Face Pulls Dumbbell Curls Incline Curls Depending on what day it is, usually one day I like to go for hypertrophy and another ill be usually doing strength so I would usually go for barbell rows first on strength day. @eknight You're right, I'm moving it to m...

Anterior delt recruitment, bench and ohp Rawsteel 7 5 yearseknight (58109): @SOLARSUPLEX truthfully, I think think they do them because they just don't know any better. @Rawsteel that's not entirely accurate. While the supraspinatus is the PRIME mover during the first 30 degrees of abduction, it's not the ONLY mover; the lateral deltoid is still doing work. Personally, if you're only concern in lateral delt hypertrophy, I'd use DBs, seated in the middle of a bench, so that they touch the bench when you're around that...

DIPPING DEEP - CERT FOR SHOULDER SNAPPAGE??? ShreddedSumo 12 5 yearsShreddedSumo (10): Great info eknight! I understand fully now thanks !!
Shoulder pressing Rawsteel 4 5 yearseknight (58109): He's correct, but his illustration of the scapular plane is a little inaccurate when he demonstrates it. See the image below: You don't need to go into full neutral position (the sagittal plane). I think I misunderstood what you were asking, because I do my DB shoulder presses in the scapular plane anyway. -3X
Should I add shoulder exercises for lagging r1ch37 25 5 yearsbrian12 (9495): @r1ch37 lets say you do a push workout tomorrow. Start with chest then do ur shoulder work. Next time you do a push workout start with shoulder work then chest. Keep switching between starting with chest and starting with shoulders each push workout.

Anatomy ??? c3pOMG 3 5 yearsc3pOMG (208): yea I knew about the delt work on bench day which is why I give it at least a day between. and that's also another reason I was thinking about giving it 2 days in between. I remember reading somewhere that there was some "upper pec" involvement with barbell MP. glad you could clear that up for me. thanks for the reply EK, you always come thru
What's everyone's 1 rep max on OHP eingold 26 5 yearsjja0016 (829): If you can lift 110 lb dumbbells for 14 reps you can easily hit 225 OHP for a 1 rm I would assume. Probably a lot more. I don't know about you but I can lift more with bar than I can with dumbbells. So, if you're hitting 110s for 14, then theoretically I would assume you could do the same at least or more with bar. @the1

Darren Plotkin training abeguelestrada 3 5 yearsTrev182 (14986): Horrendous link.
Power cleans vs OHP? MMB 4 5 yearsdatabas1c (2188): I guess you could replace overhead press with a hang clean to a strict press. I probably wouldn't advise it though because you'd end up really breaking up your set. It would end up being somewhere between 5 single presses and a single set of 5 presses.
right shoulder lower then left rangnath 13 5 yearsrangnath (1): Finally i came to know the reason for uneven shoulder height searching on net since last 4 months . I was having glenohumeral internal rotation deficit usually occurs due to throwing hand movement since i used to play cricket from child hood without strengthening it. Shoulder muscles became weak which dropped humeral head forward shortening shoulder muscles depressing shoulder.

What the hell do I do? Sedlo18 14 5 yearskickinchicken (8716): @Sedlo18 if take away the 3rd bench exercise, drop your sets of flyes down to 3, and think about switching your 2nd exercise to something like floor presses or even just flat bb bench. And you do just as more sets on your arm days as you are doing for and other muscle group. Your arms are like 1/4 the amount of muscle mass as your back chest or legs. Spending that much on arms is crazy to me. And blasting you bi's right before back day... Just...

Front delts sore after chest day? Sedlo18 11 6 yearseknight (58109): @Sach no. A "pure" front delt exercise would result in shoulder flexion, not horizontal adduction. The anterior delt is a secondary contributor to the pec major in the bench press, but I certainly wouldn't say it's a pure front delt movement. -3X

How do you do pressing movements? srsly SwoleAnimal 29 6 yearsFiremanSi (42408): @SwoleAnimal Shoulder shocker(AMAZING), face pulls and light side lat raises... primarily what i do for shoulders... i've tried bringing back OHP and seated DB press but just not worth the discomfort.
Wide shoulders MassTitan 15 6 yearsBaiTu (3096): It sounds like the problem isn't the size of your shoulders but the size of your back. My recommendation is to make sure you do two reps of every pulling exercise for every rep you do of a pushing exercise. Stay natty my friends.
YTW exersize? Sedlo18 2 6 yearsGGBro (553): I did something similar to that on an inclined bench designed to work your arms. Didnt like it. I felt torched for sure but I never felt any benefit to it after a few weeks.
Side lat raise TIP.. Youtuber's New Sub 4ya. FiremanSi 6 6 yearsFiremanSi (42408): @jonrivs49 Agreed seated with abs locked down. Helps to prevent incorporating other muscles.

Db vs bb shoulder press,which do you prefer? DFMaster240 17 6 yearsHewy007 (2980): When i'm doing a seated military press with a barbell it just doesn't feel right I'm dumbbells for shouldy press, it just feels right

Rear deltoids Hamer93 9 6 yearsFiremanSi (42408): FacePulls are one of my favourite and most unappreciated exercises. I do them on back day also, seated on a bench and pulling the cable from above head height.
What's the point of behind neck BB press? MrMailliw Jump to first page43Jump to last page 6 yearsjonrivs49 (3001): Way back people believe that front shoulder press targets front delts and the behind the neck actually to target rear delts. But now due to research and modern science. Its is proven that both target the same area of the shoulders and doing front press is safer than the behind neck press. Its a persons option or choice if he wants to do behind the neck. I do it sometimes. Its just that front is safer than behind the neck.
Barbell hang high pull SwoleMutant 3 6 yearsoceanair (18010): honestly brah, i don't know. but i'm still waiting for my jar of honey. go find winnie!
High pulls! SwoleMutant 10 6 yearsFiremanSi (42408): I started them with a low weight that i could perform 12-15 reps for this. I've progressed to 4x15 @50g. My form is really good and i never do reps less than 12. Slow controlled progress mate... They are a KING of an exercise !!! :)

Another Shoulder question.. jonrivs49 12 6 yearsSwift (1411): IMO front raises are near pointless if you're doing heavy pressing. I'd definatly rather be doing face pulls or rear felt rows. I think face pulls should be done at the end of every push and pull type workout not just to balance out ur shoulders but also for over all shoulder health and stability.
Standing barbell military press Jsn3004 4 6 yearssamirsaleh (1957): @wannabemuscular i think it makes the exercise a bit more compound as it involves a lot of other muscles specially back, also i feel it makes ur shoulder strength functional as u r able to push that weight standing up (IMO)

Shoulder Exercise Question Monster81 15 7 yearsMonster81 (1678): Yeah man, can't remember the name for the life of me, really bugging me because I wanted to check my form again. I think I was having some impingement issues with my right shoulder from humping all my gear in Afghanistan. I couldn't raise my right arm above shoulder level without pain, but I'm all good now. I was doing rear delts and don't think they've ever been a problem area for me, but maybe this just helped by hitting them more.
FORM CHECK: Overhead Press (video) Spankky 22 7 yearsbrian12 (9495): Yeah, I agree - forearms should be vertical/ 90 degrees at starting position. In the video they are pointed inwards
Having problems with my traps and rhomboids. ilifthard 23 7 yearschriselkins (1597): I hate when people post pics of their back like that. What are you trying to show by squeezing your shoulder blades together. Take a rear lat spread pic, a relaxed pic or the good old rear double bicep, por favor!
PHAT have little impact for Shoulders? jonrivs49 7 7 yearsDukenhiemer (23938): I add a few things into my shoulder routine, I've definitely seen a lot of growth on my delts from PHAT! Rear felt rows ftw.

Military press vs DB shoulder press... Markovich 12 7 yearsMarkovich (595): That's what confused me, because the weight I take 8 reps with DB, I can only take 6 reps with BB x) but it won't take me long to get stronger with the BB I hope, but thank's for the answar, I will do some speedwork as Swift mentioned and see how that works :D
Your view on shoulder training Zyzzst 15 7 yearsDukenhiemer (23938): I do DB Press not only because I feel it is safer without a spotter, I also feel it in my shoulders more than I ever did with BB. I used Jim's program over the summer to bring up my delts which were SEVERELY lacking and saw good results! Still are a weak point of mine but at least I no longer have flat shoulders!

How many reps do you's do on lateral raises? Jordan336 19 7 yearsprabalpratap (1): 3 super sets: 15 kg : 8 reps 12.5 kg: 8 reps 10 kg: 10 reps
Shoulders and pressing movement Zyzzst 3 7 yearseknight (58109): Any exercise is as safe as you make it. DBs do allow you more freedom in terms of range of movement, but if your shoulders are otherwise healthy, they're not necessarily "safer." -3X
How could I add strength training to this? Jordan336 10 7 yearsathsports (4): If you're trying to build strength I'd do military press in the range of 3-5 sets of 3-5 reps, then add your assistance work on top of that (higher volume stuff to keep up your weight.. I'd go with 3-5 sets of 10 reps). If you wanted to focus more on strength I'd do more strength sets and less sets of the assistance work. Pretty simple. ATH SPORTS NUTRITION

Any of you have great shoulders? tarotale 4 7 yearsthe1 (33860): example of "static hold" after 3 heavy sets of db shoulder press, take the weight down to just about shoulder level and hold there for 20+ seconds and try to press the weight 1-2" but that's it and keep it in the same spot with elbows flared. example of "drop set" for dummbbell side lateral raise, pick 3 dumbbells 5lbs apart from each other "20lb, 15lb, 10lb" and rep them out with PERFECT form...

how often can we hit traps? nastybeast 9 7 yearsMrMailliw (4494): Either get straps or put them on a day that requires little forearm use and/or doesn't have a lot of volume already.

MrMailliw 13 7 yearsCrypt (100): I've had trouble with my rotator cuffs, and have done those band pulls, 100-150 every other day, loosens up my right shoulder massively. Also try warming up with these exercises with 2-4kg dumbbells before any shoulder, back or chest exercise:
Quick question Zyzzst 7 7 yearsMrMailliw (4494): Small muscle so DOMS won't be too extreme in them, doesn't mean they are recovered just because you can't feel them as I rarely get DOMS in any muscle since starting upper lower but am making gains. All I have is one old FB picture as my avi, fuck what other people think! If you don't wanna upload pics just don't.
shrugs/traps? drakula 5 7 yearsAKK (1998): dip shrugs, great for serratus anterior, in my opinion you cant cheat a dip shrug.. you either come up or you dont, simple. You cant use leg drive, I also believe the ROM is a tad bit better as well. Time under tension is also extremely higher imo Dip shrugs + bike pulls and your mother will be proud (if you were wondering)
rear delt exercises Dragonian 15 7 yearsdavid12345676 (8566): i sit on the seated row machine and put on the long bar i use for wide grip lat pull downs, then i bring that up to my chest area using wide grip and when i hit my chest i hold for a 2sec count while squeezing the shit outa my rear delts and traps. works great. one of the professional bodybuilders at my gym showed me this.

Shoulder Workout - Help! PYOOnGDOOnG 5 7 yearseknight (58109): NO. Beginners also don't need an entire day for arms. OP- You have nothing in there for rear delts, either. Make it simple- pick one pressing movement, one medial delt movement (ie, side laterals), one rear delt movement (ie, face pulls), and one trap movement. Four sets each. Done. Would re-evaluate your split as a whole, as well. -EK
Arnold Presses? Popeye25 11 7 yearsPopeye25 (1692): did em today for the first time def will keep doin em. def felt it a lot more than regular presses
upright row c3pOMG 4 7 yearseknight (58109): I do them on my back/shoulder PHAT day. If you're looking to target more traps, use a grip that is shoulder width and heavier weight. Stop when the bar is nipple height. -EK
Do you guys go heavy on shoulders? DFMaster240 17 7 yearsDragonian (4951): yea that it but by not putting his elbow on a surface he is using his delts more than his rotator cuff you need to rest your elbow in a large surface like a flat bench and you go on your knees so your shoulders inline with the top of the bench. This way your rotator cuff is isolated more as your delt is relaxed

How to train shoulders, carefully? BossasaursRex 20 7 yearsWbauman (952): Thanks.. I have been doing db presses instead of bb because I can change the angle and not put as much stress on my shoulder.. I'm hoping that by strengthening my shoulders it will improve my bb flat bench.

Whats the best way to get a good pump Orlando_b1 17 7 yearsMyOwnEntity (1074): Welcome to hell!
SHOULDERS!! Dave18 14 7 yearsAnimalstats (1): definitely Dumbbell shoulder press or military press, they both prove to be the most effective way to continually shock and build the muscles, by increasing weights and sets obviously you give yourself more of a variation.
New Shoulder Routine balius 10 7 yearsMazz (573): I would definitely say one workout is enough. Don't up the set's or days, up the INTENSITY! Alternate your last set of each excercise with either different drop set methods, forced reps, FOCUS ON THE NEGATIVE, rep and weight schemes, one week use barbells, next use dumbbells, etc. My shoulders are fucked. Probably for life :( I can only do about 50lb dumbbell presses without hurting myself, so I have to do a lot of different tricks to have an...

Fuucked shoulders Ares 10 7 yearswannabemuscular (33216): Strangely, the only thing I can do that doesn't flare up my bursitis is Overhead Barbell Press. Any time I try to incorporate upright rows or any type of lateral raise my shoulder starts hurting.

SHOULDER WORKOUT DannyW 10 8 yearsChristf (2910): Ankie: I used to do a similar shoulder workout with the side/front/rear non-stop. Also, have you ever tried the shrugs where you pause at the top for 2 seconds? For example: you shrug and hold at the top for 2-3 secs for a total of 10 reps, then you just pump out 5 more regular reps. They really hit your traps.
shoulders like a gymnast Zeph 10 8 yearsIrishGymSheep (10554): Err if he wants shoulders like a gymnast then he should train like a gymnast. If he wants shoulders like a bodyvuilder then he should do heavy incline bench heavy military etc etc
