What's a DB program that works against muscular imbalance?

What are the basic principles?

In my understanding, it's about muscles and their opposite muscles. Does that mean I should work out both equally? Does it matter if I can't lift the same weight on both exercises?

>shoulder press is always harder than a row

At what point is MI dangerous?

How do I know if I fucked up?

Also, show me a based DB program without bench or pullups.

You really are a bunch of useless pieces of shit.

You are to health and fitness what /tv/ is to cinema and TV.

I vomit you into my asshole and I fart you all over the place.

That's even worse, then. I wrote it too, and there's no reason to assume it's trolling.

Just fucking deliver you gigantic homo. You have an excellent DB program? You fucking post that shit, faggot. You know about MI? You talk that shit, nigger. Life isn't hard.

Muscular imbalance becomes dangerous when you snap your shit up.
A program that works against muscular imbalances addresses the weak muscles and puts less emphasis on the stronger muscles.
How fucking stupid do you have to be to not figure this out by yourself?

Wew lad, I wasn't asking for a goddam definition, I was asking for a specific example of a program that'd do that. For fuck's sake, breh.

By now, I realise you just need to work one group of muscle and its opposite group, like biceps and triceps, etc.

If you work everything, you should be fine. I assume.
>>
>>35616405
I was just fucking with you. Sorry for being a dick.
If you don't have any injuries just try to work everything while putting a little more emphasis on the back (gets neglected so often).
You could do something like
A
3x6-8 db bp
4x6-8 unilateral row
2x10-12 triceps extension
3x10 rear delt raise

B
3x6-8 db press (I prefer seated)
4x6-8 unilateral row
2x10-12 db curl
3x10-12 rear delt raise

Have one or two rest days between A and B.
Be careful with the rows, keep the dumbbell closer to your hips than your shoulders.
Why no pull-ups, though?
>>
>>35616533
>Why no pull-ups, though?

Only because my pullup bar fails, doorframes too thin. I'm trying to find another way, that's the only reason.

Can you comment on this program:

Military Presses

Shoulder Presses DB

French Presses

Rows
https://youtu.be/-koP10y1qZI

Squats
https://youtu.be/UXJrBgI2RxA

Pushups (wall, table)
https://youtu.be/a6YHbXD2XlU

------------------------------------------

Program:

5x5 military presses (5 sets of 5 repetitions)
5x5 shoulder presses
5x5 French presses
5x5 rows
5x5 squats
5x5 pushups

Do this every other day if you can. Taking more rest days is not a problem. Just avoid working out two days in a row.

Too much volume, too much pressing movements. This program would promote muscular imbalance.

>Too much volume, too much pressing movements. This program would promote muscular imbalance.

I've been doing this for months. At first, as a circuit, then /fit/ told me it was shit, so I did it set by set.

I also do shrugs.

Should I completely change my program or improve this one?

I found a fullbody DB program online, here it is, tell me what you think:

>squats
>deadlift (stiff leg)
>lying press
>lying flys
>shoulder press
>lateral raises
>bent over rows
>bicep curls
>skullcrushers
>situps

I don't like it because it looks like bodybuilding bullshit.

Ideally, I want to do SS/SL, but can't get a BB for some time.

Should I just do SS with DB's? Is there any sense in this?

Seriously, why aren't you dicks more helpful? I help everyone with the little I know, but you guys don't even fucking care. Why are you here? Is it THAT fun to shitpost? Really?

I get way more by making other people happy with good info. Shitposting is sometimes fun but not to that extent, not that much, not to that magnitude.

Maybe you're some kind of utter scumbag, I don't know.

It just drives me insane to think someone out there KNOWS what I'm looking for but would rather I waste my time, gains, and risk my health on shit when they could spend 3 seconds guiding me towards something awesome.

What the fuck is wrong with you?

Lies. The OP is has nothing cuntish about it and you still shitposted.

>>35617854
Wrong. Asking for a routine with dumbbells is something socially awkward /r9k/ fly ins do every single day. Its like asking for an anime recommendation on /a/. Its the most cuntish thing you can do on this board

>Asking for a routine with dumbbells is something socially awkward /r9k/ fly ins do every single day.

Really now... /r9k/ doesn't ask you questions, though.

>Its like asking for an anime recommendation on /a/. Its the most cuntish thing you can do on this board

It's the best board to ask that. The idea that someone who's new to your interest might think YOU know best about it comes across as an insult? Are you literally challenged, breh?

If you don't know a good program because you only pretend to lift, fine, but don't shitpost this hard.

>It's the best board to ask that.
No I'm pretty sure that is /wsr/

Is there anything about DB only? If so, I missed out on that.

I'm preparing for SS, when I have enough money to get a home gym.
>>
>>35618060
Read the ss book
>>
>>35618072

How possible is it to do SS with DB? I'm seriously considering it.
>>
>>35618132
For how long? Read the book
>>
>>35618156

I tried to get the book but any copy is around a hundred bucks and the online version is full of shit.

So, DB SS, yes/no?
>>
>>35618239
Torrent it you autist.
>>
>>35618258

>torrents movies on a weekly basis
>never thought to torrent a book

I wish I could buy it, though.
