hey john great info man..i usually work my rear delts harder for the same reasons..thanks for everyone's input...shoulers are my least favorite exercise...........
odd, that is exactly what I do.Originally posted by John Benz
lateral raises for middle delt
bent over laterals for rear delt (overlooked by many as msclbldrguy pointed out.)
military press for front delt
Haven't done behind-the-neck in years either, unless I'm at a gym with Hammer strength (which isn't often).
destro19 I just started using that machine and I really like it
Behind the neck can cause definite rotator cuff damage if you go too far down, if not you should be fine.
on rear delt day i do
standing lateral extensions
lying lateral exten
two variations of rows (elbows high, and wide grip, usually)
If you're going to use cables for lateral raises try it with the cable behind your instead of in front.

one set each of DB side/front/rear delt laterals with 20-30 second plate "wheelies" at end of each set.
hey sage, ive been contemplating on doing something like this and maybe splitting up my chest and shoulder day altogether.
ie, one set of each like the above said. and maybe thinkin of doin (2) sets of each?
how has this been goin for u? how long have u been doin it?
thx a lot.
Love it man. been doing similar "finishes" to my shoulder days for a good 4 months now. Ive always had a dominate shoulders/traps compared to my chest and especially arms. But ever since adding the single high rep sets for the front/side/rear delts and the wheelies or holds right afterwords, ive gotten more definition in the delts, while keeping and gaining mass. Love it bra. Sage
sweetish, i think i might give it a whirl.
Anyone do the Roman Press?
Thats kinda like upright rowing, but with wider grip, and as you reach the end of that movement, reverse elbows to bring the bar to chin-level with elbows under the wrist, then finish the movement with a bar-press to full overhead arm extension. Reverse and slowly bring back down.
Sure gets my heart pumping, which is kinda fun for a SHOULDER movement!
