If your ba k is getting stronger, then your rear delts can't be that bad. Right? Or do you mean stronger on/in dead lifts?Originally Posted by TorobestiaTHURSDAY 05/17/12
Woops, didn't see my notes about this last week. Anyways moved grip in about a finger on each hand and felt amazing. But I had no explosive strength whatsoever. Every rep was slow and hard. ****.
Gave myself liftoff, hit the upright on 5th rep of 1st set. Head wasn't happy with this.
WIDE GRIP UPRIGHT ROWS
TBAR ROWS <-- different machine
REVERSE FLYS ON PEC DEC
I've been neglecting my lateral delts for a long time, now. I think my decrease in bench power is likely associated with this weak spot. I know my close grip bench press is where it should be to hit 295 for three triples, and my military press, while it sucks, is about the same, too, actually a little higher. And my back strength is higher than it's ever been, so really have to blame it on that. Will be regularly performing wide grip upright rows from now on out. I like them because I force myself to not cheat on them, whereas on lateral raises, who knows how much you shift the weight to the traps? I know I could stick to those, but I'm just taking a little from DC here. Anyways, after this week of lifts I will be taking 5 days off to go to a big, 3-day concert, to see some of my favorite bands. While their last few albums sucked horribly, one of which is probably the worst album in music ever recorded, my favorite band Morbid Angel will be performing, as will some other awesome death metal bands. When I return, I am considering incorporating some things from DC training into my workout for upper body, but performing my lower body exercises as is. Still tinkering with this idea. I'd have to reset pretty low, like 205-215 for bench, and so on, but I think it'd be worth it.
