What you guys do for delts?
My chest and arms killing it, delts not so much.
Dumbell shoulder press (Pic related)
Upright rows/Lateral raises not as heavy are good
Do those for the side delt, all you need. Just get stronger at those.
Do flyes for the rear delt (I like doing the pec deck machine in reverse, it rocks)
Smith machine OHP, standard ohp, seated dumbell press.
Then move onto accesory movements such as: seated side raises, plate raises, cable front raises, face pulls and rear delt flyes.
End the day with some heavy shrugs.
this is all solid advice.
especially arnold press
avoid upright row, even light weight.
when doing the exercise, only focus on moving your elbow, not your wrist or shoulder.. helps eliminate form problems
jeff cavaliere (athlean-x) and sean nalewanyj have good videos on proper form with lat raises.
I only do OHP on one upper body day, and some lateral raises on second upper day and my shoulders are buff as fuck.
As long as you bench and ohp shit ton of weight, do some acessory and thats all senpai..
Also I noticed since I added weighted dips, made my shoulder bigger.
Shoulder exercises are easy as fuck.
Shoulder press uses two fucking muscles
Lateral raises are dyel-tier and effective
Reverse pec deck or face pulls for real delt size/shoulder health
BTN pressing is not recommended unless you know what acromion type you have for sure.
you can't feel impingement until it's too late, most of the time.
feels fine for the first 10-15 years, then you find your rotator cuff tendons are perforated.
Tangential question... I often have trouble getting a bar at my school gym cause it's crowded as fuck. How bad is it if I replace OHP with DB shrugs some of the time when I can't get a bar?
And yes I know shrugs are for traps, I'm not really worried specifically about delts.
Lateral raises. Lower weight. Higher reps. As much time under tension with as slow and controlled reps as you can. Aim for around 6 sets of 15ish and try to limit the rest to under a minute. Don't cheat by throwing your body into it.
>never raise more than 30 lbs and my delts are sculpted.
