    Dysmorphia Training Exercise Selection

    Only yesterday I was thinking I would like to spend some time getting my strength up while continuing to grow. I come onto WBB for the first time in a few months and find the DT article- coincidence?! This really is the place to go on the net to find the best training info.

    The lifts I really want to bring up are my dips, chins and front squats. I see dipsand chins are included in the programme already, but can I also use them plus front squats as ME lifts without any problems without changing the programming otherwise, or would I need to make other adjustments? I hate sounding like one of those muppets who always want to change a perfectly good programme, but I am appallingly weak in these lifts and it needs sorting.

    Many thanks in advance.

    I see this went unanswered...I don't see a problem with including front squats, it's a perfectly good lift.

    That would be fine, but curious why you want to build your front as opposed to back squat?

    I am rehabbing a shoulder injury at the moment. It's not painful but I am basically incapable of circling my arms back further than the vertical, if you see what I mean. I am working on it through shoulder dislocations and a stretching regime my physio has recommended, but until then I am physically incapable of putting a bar across my back!

    Thanks for the replies, I'll factor dips, chins and front squats as ME lifts in different cycles.

    You feel you can still front squat with that shoulder? If so, have at it.

    Yep its purely a mobility issue, repetitive strain from years of competitive swimming. Front squats are no problem. Thank you very much for helping out.
