    Default Shoulders lagging

    So a buddy of mine who works as a electrician is having problems with shoulder development. Most of his day is holding shit above his head and between job and routine I am leaning toward over training shoulders.

    His current routine:
    Sunday- chest
    MOnday - back
    tues - off
    wed - shoulders
    thurs- arms
    fri- legs
    sat - off
    sun - repeat

    My plan for next 3 weeks to see if we notice a change

    sun - chest, side delt laterals
    mon - off
    tues - back, rear delt laterals
    wed- off
    thu - legs
    fri - arms
    sat- off

    No shoulder pressing at all.

    Thoughts?
    Thanks Presser thanked for this post

    i like it, especially side delts after chest, as fronts are bieng used as stabilizer muscle to the chest more often then we probably should lol, and same for rears and back, but for someone who is likely over training them between work and training, i think its a solid idea, i mean you can always tweak it for him according to how he feels and responds

    I use the press behind neck on the Smith machine to train shoulders. I attribute much of my shoulder gains to this exercise. I watched You-tube videos of Kevin Levrone and other bodybuilders use this exercise and they have outstanding shoulder development.

    My shoulders are probably my best body part, and is my shortest workout. Side lateral raises with dumbbells to warm them up and hit the medial heads first. Then presses with dumbells. Then rear delts with cables. Then side lateral raises to burn out with cables. I train traps with back.

    I have always been told that you will be able to do behind the neck press or you won't. And I can't kills my joints, but my favorite is standing dumbbell press with everything pulled back like I would be doing behind the neck press awesome pump no pain
