    delts


    my delts look small compared to my tris and chest, and i am looking to add more size to them. i have worked out legs, chest and back twice a week before, but have never done the same with delts. has anyone had success hitting their delts twice a week or has it been counterproductive?

    It's sad that so few still do/recommend standing overhead presses.

    Or any oly lifts. My shoulders are the result of clean and press and snatches. 1 arm snatches took it to a new level.

    Op I have a thread in the natty BB section called progression and persistence. Some videos of snatches / 1 arm snatches. It may prove helpful.

    Oly lifts. Standing presses, face pulls are my favorite delt exercises.

    Between you and rodja, Great suggestions. My shoulders were built on standing mil press, push press, hang cleans and power cleans, and the occasional clean and press. Incorporate one or two of those and use your smith presses and dumbell movements once a week and youll have some swole ass delts.

    I love face pulls for rear delts. I used to do up right rows with a lean, but I find face pulls a lot less stressful

    (facepulls = seated rows to face)

    I agree with OHP, but also, you dont need to front raise if you bench; especially if your technique could be better. Most people have overdeveloped anterior deltiods from hitting them way too much

    Agreed. I would say most have under developed posterior delts.

    I always focus on posterior delts so I have a nice place for the bar to sit when I squat... Bro science right there, but it has made a good impact aesthetically if nothing else.
