    Talking You guise are missing out big time if you don't do Hise shrugs (srs)




    I tried this with measly 135 lb with a slight lean forward and by the time I did 10 reps my whole upper back (including lats) was fried

    it should be a good finishing movement for your back workout

    I also like it cuz you don't have to use as much weight as you do regular shrugs

    How to stop neck and upper back pain while squatting? I prefer stopbeingavagina in a moderate weight for about 12 reps. Simple and effective.

    May give those a try!

    I also reccommend doing some of these after shrugs

    I watched up until he talked about doing the exercise because the bar hurts while doing squats. Gotta agree with bumpus here.

    usually about 3-4 sets of 10-12 reps

    I didn't really do it for mitigating neck pain, I did it mainly for building muscles

    ahaha I've done this with a trap (hex) bar when I was just playing around with it.. it works well and I might try this again with dumbbells later

    thanks for reminding me brah

    wow you have big arms btw

    again, I did it to build muscles, not b/c of neck pain

    it's a legit exercise

    Aww, thx guys

    lol, thx man. I'm still a bit overweight, workin on gettin my muscle back to where it was before my 2 year layoff(or at least close to where I was), then focus on losing bodyweight/bodyfat.

    I been workin out on and off since junior high...but wasn't training my whole body till freshman year in high school....so like, about 10 years or so but on and off. Only my senior year of high school did I take training and diet really seriously, and in college I'd say about 2 years of training I did well but diet wasn't great, then a year of just training like every other week or so, and last two years I didn't train at all.

    I started training again like last January. A month or two were missed though. Once from being sick (i was taking a week off then went back to the gym but got sick later that week so ended up taking another week and a half off), and one month because the gym had closed down and I was looking for other places(didn't really like any but was considering one, and my dad started looking into the corporate plans to see if we could sign up the employees)...well anyways, the gym I was going to opened back up under new management. Been back for two months now.

    Rehabing my rotator cuff cus I tweaked it somehow outside of the gym. Gonna make rotator cuff training part of delts/traps workouts now. Love doing the exercises, make my rotator cuff feel great (only thing is that having a weak rotator cuff later on in the week makes chest workouts kinda tricky). Right now, the rest of my workouts are basically made around not tweaking my rotator cuff again and not going super heavy on stuff where it's called into play (can't go too heavy on incline presses cus front delts come heavily into play). Nonetheless have been getting good workouts. Hopefully in another month my rotators will feel good enough to start going heavy again and having balls-out training sessions.

    Slowly working my volume up and then will start increasing intensity. My delts are loving the increased workout volume though in terms of growth. They were being really stubborn since I picked up training again. My arms were slowly progressing and had like a spurt the past couple weeks, lol. Also, they're engorged with blood in the vid cus it's after an arm workout and I took a preworkout supp with NO precursors in it(arginine, even though lots of people don't respond to it, apparently).

    As for my delts, I found out that my volume in previous workouts wasn't high enough to fully stimulate them. Gotta get them caught up to the chest and arms. Definitely working on my proportions, trying to put size on in the right places.

    edit - sorry for longwinded post. Just figured it'd get everyone up to speed

    I actually do this rotator cuff exercise as a part of my warmup and I think it's been very beneficial

    Whenever I see an exercise like this I think to myself "Is there a better way of doing this?" Honestly it looks like a watered down overhead shrug that you could load up a lot more. I would actually imagine these being able to more weight then a traditional shrug depending on how comfortable you are with a lot of weight on your back.

    I just think if your only purpose of using it is size there are better exercises, but always nice to have another way to do something.
    Current Bests (raw/singleply)

    Squat- 435 / 512.5
    Bench- 280 / 308.5
    Deadlift- 495/ 534

    Goals:

    - Squat 500, Bench 325, Deadlift 550 raw at 181-220.

    - Give the recreational bodybuilder thing a solid effort.

    yeah, that's the one i started including on all shoulder workouts. Sometimes do other ones, too. Thx for posting. Gonna give those Bradford presses a try.
    "...that's the great virtue of the free market, of the private market. It enables people...who hate one another...who don't speak the same language...who would fight one another if they had the chance, to cooperate economically. We were able to deal with China when China was a communist state. Even though we thought that that was a terrible arrangement, we could still cooperate. And that's what markets enable people to do. They bring freedom with them."
