    When to vary a workout program for lagging body parts

    I have been following Vikings ulppl routine for quite some time. I was previously doing a "bro split" but didn't really know any better until I joined this forum and started a program.

    I have been lifting for about a year. I have made some pretty good gains except for one area in particular - my shoulders. They seem to be lagging behind and are easily my weakest link.

    Now, if you mention changing one of Viking's programs in his thread, he goes off the rails. But I would really like my shoulders to keep up with everything else.

    So my question is, do I just keep following the program, or is it OK once you spot a weak part to add/sub some exercises to address it? Is it time to find a different program?

    Thanks!!

    Are your shoulders actually lacking? What are you basing this on? Beginners only have one weakpoint... their entire body...

    Most people, who suggest changes to my programs, haven't even ran any of them long enough to make them work. That's what pisses me off...

    Using numbers, define lagging (ie. what are your lift numbers).

    Ha lol, funny how that backfired at you by getting your first response by the man himself.

    You're military pressing twice a week and doing lateral raises/rear delt exercises on top of all the other pressing.. Either it's your form that's 'lacking' or your patience, neither of which have anything to do with the program itself.

    Give a program at least a good 6 months before complaining. His programs are solid and even a bit heavy on the shoulder volume for me (pressing wise).

    FYI, after a year your whole body is still lagging.

    You're either impatient or it's just your perception. On a program with as much shoulder volume as viking's, you're doing plenty.
