    Default great post man

    I hurt my shoulder during baseball and I am going to start doing the lifts you talked about in hope of regaining some of the strength I lost. Thanks for the tip.

    Presses only develop the front of the shoulder, to build great shoulders you also have to train the side and rear

    Does the front raise work the same part of the shoulder as the military press?

    I will have to wait to get a little stronger in the Upper Middle Trap Region to do these Doug.

    A many years back I suffered an injury playing roller hockey. Blindsided into the boards by a Mack Truck that thought he was in the NHL.

    Eventually I will make an attempt though.

    Just on the W presses; I use them every now and then and can be a very good exercise for developing more joint stability at the outstretched position, which I had probelms with in the past.
    I also use an 'Arnold' type press approach to these, which seriously works your front and lateral delts with a nice wide W at the top

    Here are some exercises not known to many people that can help to add new stimulus to shoulder development.

    (1) Prone Reverse Raises.

    The purpose of this exercise is to work the posterior deltoid/outer trapezius in a way that no other movement can
    (a) Lie down on a bench high enough so that your arms can extend down to the sides without touching the floor. If no bench is available, you can do this exercise whilst standing and bent over, torso parallel to the floor.
    (b) Holding a dumbell in each hand, palms facing forward, slowly and deliberately bring the arms up and back, along side your body. Keep the arms straight throughout.
    (c) Return the weight to the original position and repeat.
    3 sets x 10-12 reps

    (2) Supine Cable Arcs.

    In this exercise you'll eventually be lying down on a bench at a cable station.
    (a) Using a low pulley; take hold of a straight bar with both hands in an overhand grip whilst seated on the bench or floor.
    (b) Now lie back and keep the cable down by your hips,
    (c) Using an upward, arc like movement, raise the bar overhead and upwards until your arms are outstretched as far back as the will go.
    3 sets x 12-15 reps.

    (3) "W" Presses.


    (a) Hold a pair of dumbells in the standard fashion as if you were going to do presses.
    (b) Now as you rise the dumbells, spread your arms so that your hands are further out to the sides at the top of the movement, simulating the look of a "W".
    (c) Lower the weight down until your elbows are as low and as close to the body as possible.
    4 sets x 10 reps.

    (4) Forward Barbell Holds.

    (a) hold a barbell straight out in fron of you with arms parallel to the floor.
    (b) continue holding it.
    (c) Keep going !
    (d) Dont drop your arms untill you cant hold the bar up any more.
    4 sets to failure.

    (5) Swinging Dumbell Raises.

    (a) With both hands grab a heavy dumbell on the floor.
    (b) Keeping your legs apart and slightlyl bent, raise the dumbell from the floor to above your head in one sweeping movement. keeping the arms straight as possible throughout.
    3 sets x 12-15 reps.

    (6) Lying Bent-Arm Quarter-Laterals.

    (a) Lie sideways on a slightly inclined bench.
    (b) Holding a heavy dumbell in your upper hand, bend your arm at the elbow.
    (c) Now using only the shoulder muscles, raise the weight just a couple of inches so that your elbow and the dumbell remain at the same height.
    (d) Slowly lower the weight, but dont let it come to a total rest at the bottom.
    (e) Keep the weight moving within this range of motion for as long as possible. Repeat with the other arm.
    3 sets x 10-12 reps.

    Good luck..!
    Any chance of vids ?

    Try this, but only if you are at least intermediate level: do a front BB raise, hold for a second or 2 at the top, then continue the motion by bending the elbows and touch the bar (padded) to your forehead. Go back down, pausing at the front raise high point go down and repeat. It's a combination front BB raise with a cuban rotation added into the same exercise.

    The pain is starting to get unbearable. I have really tight muscles in my shoulders, neck, and some parts of my upper back. Massages don't help, neither does any kind of pain killer . It's getting to the point that it gives me headaches, makes me dizzy and nauseated, and to where it looks as if my shoulders are haunched. I can't even turn my head all the way anymore.

    I just need some stretches to do that will loosen me up a little. I don't know what causes it...stress, maybe, or sleeping wrong. I donno, but it's been like this forever.

    Thanks in advance.

    Excellent write up, the prone reverse raises are actually one of my favorite exercises...Then again I may be biased due to the results!

    Over head pressese and Front, Side, Rear Raises are best for shoulder exercise. But you shared very good tips to do shoulder exercise.

    yes, you're right. The overhead press is in many ways a better exercise than the bench press.

    Overhead press has many benefits over the bench press. Consider a few listed situations listed below:

    Full Body
    The overhead press works your body as one piece. Your trunk & legs stabilize the weight, while your shoulders, upper-chest & arms press the weight overhead.
    Builds Muscle
    Abs & back stabilize the weight. Shoulders, upper-chest & triceps press the weight overhead.
    Healthy Shoulders
    The Bench Press works your front shoulders more than your back shoulders. The overhead press works all shoulder heads equally. Alternating the overhead press with the bench press minimizes risks of shoulder injuries caused by muscle imbalances.

    I wonder what you would suggest for a bad shoulder? My right shoulder hangs lower then the other. I realize that my whole right side suffers to extreme losses of strength when it comes to lifting anything. when resting my arms my right ends up being longer then the left. Maybe I should just see a doctor or chiropractor haha.

    Other then that, great post friend!
