To those of you who train your chest and shoulder on the same day, do any of you train your shoulders before you hit your chest?
I am asking because I am training mainly for aesthetic reasons. My chest is my genetic strong point. Even before I got serious about my training I had a huge chest that people commented on. However, I feel like my shoulders are a weaker point for me. I feel like I am thicker than I am wide (not really but you get what I mean).
I have been considering switching up the order of exercises to hit my shoulders before chest to prioritize them. I just cant get out of my head something that an old coach had told me about NOT training shoulders before chest because then you wont be able to completely fatigue the chest because the shoulders will give out too soon.
Now dont get me wrong, I dont expect to be able to put up the same weights for bench press if I am doing this. I am just curious if there is really anything wrong with training this way? My main questions are:
Will I be really neglecting my chest?
Do you think this will help to develop my shoulders more?
Reps for all decent replies!
