Best ways to train side delts for size
- 03-16-2012, 09:52 AM
Lol I don't over do it I know what your talking about and yeah it hurts. if you have time search Charles glass style side laterals on you tube the db barely goes all the way up so you really have to be in control of the movement and I use medium to light weight and I don't drop it all the way on the bottom since delts are mid range exercises and benefit a lot from time under tension. Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems to be working for me lately

If you are going to maintain a high degree of external rotation as Styrg is describing, than you shouldn't bring the weight above your lower chest level. The higher you go the greater the impingement of the supraspinatus will be.
And yes, most bodybuilders have over developed front deltoids due to all the shoulder flexion and scapula protraction work, and an inadequate amount of shoulder extension and scapula retraction work.

Well said. Straighter, bigger back equals bigger chest, bigger tri's equal bigger arms... From an aesthetic outlookOriginally Posted by Flaw

Pre-exhaust a heavy pushing exercise with some light, high rep laterals, then do the rest of your shoulder workout, then do this:
Pick a weight you can do 15 laterals with.
Do 12 laterals, immediately followed by 12 front raises, followed again by 12 shoulder presses, all with the original weight.
Rest 30 seconds and repeat.
Do 3 sets. It brings on a brutal pump and really rounds out the muscle when you pose.

Speaking of the supraspinatus, what would be the best course of action for impingement? I've been thinking recently that I may have an impingement or be flirting close to it.Originally Posted by ZiR RED

First course would be to run some simple tests to try and determine which tendon is impinged..whether its the SS, IS, or biceps tendon. From there, some ice/anti inflammatories and corrective exercises can be used.
