    I'm a fan of heavier btn jerk push/press.. but I'm not super strong so my heavy is still pretty light on that to be safer

    This.
    As others stated start with behind the neck OHP.
    Move on to heavy/cheated upright rows.
    Finish with the facepulls.

    That makes vertical push, vertical pull and horizontal pull, all hitting your rear delts. No way they don't grow with that.

    Do Facepulls like this. Best MMC and gets rid of all momentum and helps get them into a stretched position

    https://youtu.be/_0GtqdS6qfo?t=40 like but with palms facing eachother and thumb up

    These really blew my rear delts up, do the second one nearly ever workout 3x15-20 and the two together at the end of a back workout

  6. To my knowledge, no one has suggested executing the movement with a fully protracted scapula. Doing so will help to inhibit the involvement of the scapula.

    Bingo! This is the ticket!

    I also use an "S-Curve" path of motion that maximizes rear delt activation. Maybe one of u fellas who just walked out of your summer kinesiology course can elaborate on the path more clearly than I'm doing.

  8. Was just listening to the hatecast where they talked about this. Btn press and upright rows are the best compound movements for it. Just don't immediately try heavy heavy weight since you aren't as familiar with that ROM and may not have strong rear delts to start with. Reverse peck deck and reverse cable flies are other decent options. They also went over how those movements got a bad rep from a couple articles in the past written by someone who likely fcked up their shoulders by doing db chest flies and over extending.

  9. Behind the Neck Press and upright rows,is the Bread and Butter to building some massive rear delts! If done Safely and with Proper form.

  10. i think like others have said, most gym goers are number chasing, its very rarely you see someone in the gym training with thought

  11. Has anyone tried the "Klokov Presses"? You do them behind the neck, full reset every rep, snatch grip
    I used to do these a lot and my shoulders are probably my best body part

    I went heavy on behind the neck ive things didnt feel right, got some shoulder minor injury . That said, some can do it without issue like Kevin levrone. For some people Ive talked with it seems to not be the best exercise. If I do it I say go lighter, dont push it.

    Cable Upright rows Ive found work pretty well.

    I only press 50lbs or 60lbs with high reps,when doing BNP. I also find it more easier to do it with the Ez-bar over the Straight bar.

    These are dangerous relatively to you ROM and your poportions. Individuals with broad clavicles have a greater mobility and can lower the bar when doing behind the neck OHP, contrary to individuals with narrow clavicles who are risking shoulder impringment when doing so. Anyway any exercice causing chronic pain should be stopped.

    my shoulders have always been a relatively strong body part and grew easily. Ive had a lot of comments on them , esp when I used to press a lot. I dont press too much but will from time to time, more for a change up, bc I feel i get the most out of lateral stuff. In fact i didnt do any pressing for at least a year on shoulder day. Agreed 100 % , if it hurts stop it immediately!!!!!!!!!!!

    Basically. Just a BTN press with snatch grip. You ever watch any of klokovs videos? Dude snatched like 450 lbs clean and jerks well over 500. OHS over 500. Hes one of my all time favorite lifters

  22. Tried a variation of machine behind the neck mimic movement and did one light set and quit, just didn't feel right.

    did the cable upright rows though
