Since I joined, I notice new threads on shoulders almost daily. I have done a lot of experimenting and my conclusion is pretty easy.
this is where the " not really " part comes in.
1) Drop your weight down and focus on form
- Doing lateral raises with 35's looking half retarded isnt going to isolate your side delt. it's going to hit mostly your traps and again, make you look like an idiot. And dont do 6 reps of a heavy ass weight. do 12 reps of a weight were you can control it -_- (duh)
2) Rear Delt
- face pulls / reverse cable crossovers are better at isolating the rear delt then rear delt flys, trust me. they are. try
3) Super setting
try super setting for more intensity, not many people super set shoulders and i have no idea why, they're just like any other muscle.
ex: upright rows (done properly) into lateral raises
I can basically guarantee if you incorporate this stuff into your shoulder workouts, give it a month or two and you'll see better results.
ps. shoulders arent magic. ok well thats it lol pce
