I think my delt strength is holding my bench back, both raw and shirted. I'm strong off the chest and at lockout, but slow in the middle. Im weak on floor press compared to my bench too (the 1st half at least). My form is pretty good i think so im pretty sure its weak delts compared to my upper back and tris.
So my plan is to include more floor press and some kind of overhead pressing to bring up my delt strength. The problem is that i have had problems with my left shoulder (part of the reason why the delts are weak) and i had a series of cortisone shots in it.
If i do regular grip OHP, behind the neck press, or incline bench it aggrovates the bad shoulder. So i am thinking of using some neutral grip work - which doesnt seem to hurt it. I can press the trap bar overhead as the handles are neutral grip, or i can use seated or standing DBs, or possibly KBs any of those with a grip in between neutral and normal.
Does anyone have any experience or ideas about increasing delt strength for bench using neutral grip stuff only?
