    As long as your grip is wide enough, and you haven't shown issues with your shoulders previously they are a good shoulder exercise. Not really meant for strength though so using it to super set or as a workout finisher is a great way to utilize them. Especially to hit that hard to develope rear delt.


  2. or you could do face pulls and not worry about your shoulders

    All to need is baby weight for those suckers and they'll rock your rear delts and traps.

    They're definitely a higher rep lift. The most I've used is 20# DBs.

    That's what I used today. Focused on not flaring my ribs, which isolated my upper back. Didnt count reps, just went until I could go anymore. My traps got quite the pump

    I'd still add clean presses however, as you do use your shoulders to guide the bar through a full range of motion, and then of course the press. It would be interesting to see just how much resistance the shoulders are fighting at any given time during a clean, though momentum carries the bulk of the weight. But activating the shoulder, using it as part of a greater chain of movement to hoist the bar and then press certainly gives them some time under tension.

    Either way, cleans are usually done in a low rep range vs. banging out multiple high rep sets of upright rows so it's still a different animal.

    When I clean, it usually feels like a continuous chain of movement combining the deadlift, a (partially) bent over row and then a shrug before I drop under. I'm no olympic expert but it worked well for football.
