    What do you think of this shoulder routine for bgb?

    I was thinking of implementing this into my day three of the bgb routine.

    I would do my normal back routine, then move on to shoulders. I would do a military press, and a barbell upright row, and then move onto this:

    What do you think? Is this guy out of his mind? should I just keep in simple? or is this a good idea?

    Thanks

    Buddy puts way too much wrist into his arnies. No clue how he figures you'll shred your shoulders by developing endurance.

    Listen, try my favourite combo:

    Actually, I rotate between these:

    Option 1
    5-rep hang cleans
    8-rep corner barbell push presses
    (Optional: 12-rep arnies - maybe drop this one if you're cutting to reduce training volume a bit)

    Option 2

    5-rep millies
    8-rep heavy arnies ss 8-rep side laterals


    Personally, I'd ditch the upright rows entirely. They can be murder on the RC and there's no need for 'em.

    option 2 is an asskicker - I love it -

    military press is just such a good lift - I wish everybody asked everybody what their military press was instead of their bench, the world would be a much better place

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Built...only two shoulder lifts per week? I think I have been doing too much within the past few months. Last night I read this article: http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=252

    Basically it is saying less is more. I think I will bennefit a lot from reading that article. I've been doing too many lifts each day.

    I still don't quite understand this....could someone explain please?

    Millies and arnold presses both work the anterior deltoid. What about lateral and posterior deltoid?

    Millies hit front. Arnies hit front and side. You'll notice I hit side delts with another hit every second week with side laterals ss after Arnies. And cleans destroy EVERYTHING lol! And of course, rear delts get a good solid hit with all rowing movements.

    Of all the "parts" I've brought up, my delts consistently make me smile - and I had NO shoulders when I started.

    I don't anymore. I did - I used to do face pulls and rear delt flyes, rows etc. Now they seem to get hit just fine with the rowing work I do.

    ss = steady state.

    I do cleans instead of millies every second vertical day. Lately, I've done a set or two as clean and press. Always power cleans, hang, not off the floor.
