shoulders lagging from overtraining?
here's my routine...
bent over laterals
Straight bar curls
straight leg calf raises 5x10
I'm using periodization so my reps range from 12-4 on all bodyparts except legs!
my problem ive been having is that when it comes time to hit shoulders, they're still a bit sore from chest, not alot but a decent amount, and it's not that my shoulders are taking over too much becuase i able to isolate my chest very good, my question is since muscle dont know weight but only stress induced on the muscle, should i jsut add shoulders in with chest and move my back workout to another day so instead of my shoudlers getting hit basically 3 times per week there only getting hit 2 (1 directly and 1 indirectly) is this a good idea or will this make my delts lag even more??? what's weird about this is that my strength on the delt exercises are going up slightly but no growth at all...

get rid of shoulder day and put like 2 shoulder excercises on chest day since you arent doing tri's w/ em

my work out partner suffered from aedeltia means with out Delts... he had 1 .. his front from bench and that was it. mind you he traind 5-6 days a week even hammered shoulder day.. HARD this kid was an aminal in training couldnt resist working out. well it turned out, yes im a detective, that he was overtraining. we incorperated isolated bent over lateral raises for rear delt on back day and we did regular lateral raises on chest day w/ a slight lean forward.. *PERKASETS JUST KICKED IN* and then to finish it i would do front plate raises 2 sets of 20 second holds u know hold a plate at 10 and 2 out infrton of you keep straight up arms slightly bent and HOLD IT it rapes my side and rear delts when i hold it infront of me and slightly shrug my shoulders. Play w/ it its more about just contracting the muscle on your own first then once u feel it then let the plate apply the resistance.
