Prompt Shoulder Activator! The “Non Responder” Answer! | ALL THREE HEADS!


No one desires to elevate mild weights.. However what if I informed you in the case of coaching shoulders that mild weights are DAE WAE?


Immediately we’re going to proceed with the non-responder collection, and we’re going to speak about shoulders. We’re going to go over workouts for all Three heads of the delts, however that is going to be a little bit totally different to what we did for chest and again. For chest and again, I defined find out how to use OTHER workouts earlier than doing all your important actions, to assist set up a stronger mind-muscle connection (MMC).

On the subject of the shoulders, in an effort to set up a stronger MMC with varied actions, you truly must take a step again and away from barbell or dumbbell presses, dumbbell raises, or no matter you might be presently doing on your shoulder exercise. As an alternative, you want to do some very SPECIFIC actions in an effort to goal every head correctly to right your type, after which set up a good stronger MMC to these muscle tissue.

Entrance Deltoids
The vast majority of folks have a tough time rising their shoulders as a result of it doesn’t matter what they’re doing (entrance, center or rear delts), they begin to convey extra chest or extra higher again into the motion. That sometimes occurs as a result of both their type is off, their lifting extra weight than they need to, or each. On the subject of the entrance delts, what occurs is most individuals attempt to elevate an excessive amount of weight, and rapidly realise that when their shoulders are protracted, they’re not capable of elevate as a lot comfortably. This implies they have an inclination to convey their shoulders again, after which elevate the load.

Sure, you’re capable of elevate extra weight this manner, however as quickly as you go from protraction to retraction, you begin to convey much more higher chest into that motion, which is why you’re capable of elevate a bit extra weight. You’ll want to re-teach your physique to solely hit these entrance delts as laborious as doable via the whole vary of movement. I’m going to cowl how one can get a greater MMC of the entrance delts with a resistance band, however you should use a cable machine for this train too, simply use the identical type.

Entrance Elevate (3 – four Units: 8 – 10 Reps Per Facet)
If you’re utilizing a resistance band, I would like you to face on it on the bottom. Nonetheless, as a substitute of retracting your shoulder blades, I would like you to face impartial, after which convey your shoulder ahead barely for SLIGHT protraction. Don’t power something or convey your shoulders too far ahead, as this could trigger ache and impingement. Seize the resistance band so that there’s rigidity on the backside of the motion, then elevate the band up and over your head as excessive as you possibly can.

What’s good in regards to the resistance band is you’re going to maintain rigidity on the entrance delt on the high of the motion, and so long as there’s not quite a lot of slack, you’ll even have a little bit of rigidity on the backside as properly. If you use dumbbells for this, or perhaps a barbell (which is OK to do), clearly what occurs is when you go about your chest or chin stage, you begin to lose rigidity since you shift from lifting the load to actually holding it above your head. With the resistance band, you begin on the backside, go all the best way to the highest, after which convey it again down, controlling the motion via the whole vary of movement. So cease utilizing dumbbells, cease utilizing a barbell, and simply seize a resistance band so you possibly can re-teach your physique find out how to activate these muscle tissue.

Center Deltoids
The rationale why quite a lot of us have a tough time partaking the middles delts is for two causes. The primary motive is apparent – you’re utilizing weight that’s manner too heavy. The second motive is folks once more are likely to retract their shoulder blades. In case you’re retracting your shoulder blades after which utilizing weight that’s manner too heavy, it shortens the vary of movement, and it most likely signifies that your higher again and traps are doing many of the work, slightly than the center delts.

Lateral Elevate (3 – four Units: 8 – 10 Reps Per Facet)
The way in which I would like you to do lateral raises for the following couple of weeks is on the cable machine. The rationale why you’re going to make use of a cable machine is for a few totally different causes. Primary – whenever you seize the deal with and step away from the machine, the load is suspended the whole time. What meaning is you’ve got fixed rigidity all through the whole vary of movement.

  1. Hey brother, great video, thank you. I do have one question though regarding the choice and reasoning behind using the bands instead of dumbbells for the front raises. (I very well may have missed something), but I’m just trying to “feel” the difference. I understand what you’re saying about the point in the movement at the top where the resistance is virtually gone, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t be the same with the bands – where we’d again have a break from the time under tension at the top?And so, it got me thinking about a slightly different movement wherein we would begin standing up-right with the band held as you were and as we progress through the movement we – instead of staying vertical – we would lower our upper body, bending it forward as if doing a good morning and finish the movement with our upper body bent 45° forward at the hips and our arms (and upper body) at 135 degrees relative to the floor.
    As I was typing this I realized we’d again hit the “zero tension” point at the end of the movement. However if we use dumbbells, the force of gravity would instead pull down wards and avoid any dead points. Thoughts?Thanks!

  2. I love to have some good lateral delts but man my rotator cuff bugs me now. And that is my fault from not knowing the wae when I started. I'm left with only being able to perform exercises with external rotation for side delts. Meanwhile I have been doing therapy exercises for the rotator cuffs. Hopefully I can get to doing it the right way one day.

  3. Scott please help me man. I absolutely hate doing Lateral raises. Are there alternative exercises to target the medial deltoids? My posterior and anterior are sorted because I love doing facepulls and I do a shit ton of compound pushing movements involving the anterior. Also, I forgot to add that I'm not strong enough to do the lateral raises on cable machine as the lowest weight is 5 kg and I workout with 2.5kg dumbbells now.

  4. Hi Scott, I have read that for a natural lifter, frequency is more important than volume. So, currently I train upper body in one day and lower body the next day, covering a muscle thrice in a week. Since, you are a natural lifter whom I love to follow, can you please advice/suggest me if this works fine.
    P.S.- I have been strength training for about 8-9 years now.

  5. Shiiit, I did your shoulder rep in superset with boceps bumbell today… that was intense!

    Listen, I'd like to start your cheat & reps program next week. I've downloaded the exel file and observed that there's no cardio time… neither at the end or at the start. Usually I do some at the end and a bit warmup at the beginning, should I skip?
