    Sore Anterior Delts

    So, my front delts are always very sore after bench days. Much more than my triceps, chest, lats, etc...

    Is this a sign that they are my weak link? Is there a problem? Or is that normal for many people?

    Just trying to analyze my situation...

    I just recently started posting some vids of my squat form. I don't know what is better for analyzing, 1 rep max or a heavy set of 5?

    I do think that I flare my elbows a bit. What is that a sign of, as far as weak links go?

    Add in overhead press assistance and work on your arch. Engaging your lats and triceps will take a lot of pressure off your delts and pecs, both of which will bear too much burdon if you're too flat or flaring.

    My front delts use to get sore all the time when I benched with my elbows flared out.

    I'm not an expert but it's usually a pretty good sign that your triceps are too small/weak.

    I really appreciate all of the ideas. I'll try to get a video on Monday. Until then I can tell you a few numbers that may shed light (?)-

    Flat bench- 385
    Floor Press-365
    3 Board press- 415
    Narrow Grip press-275x10
    Bent over row- like 205x5-8 (A weak point I think)

    I don't know if that helps, but maybe...

    Now, I also have a old shoulder issue that is around the same area. I get a burning in my front delt. Tendonitis was the best guess I ever got from the docs, or some kind of inflammation. Either way, I typically do not do any incline bench or military press for this reason. It begins to hurt if I go more than half the range of motion.
