The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    You could try a giant set routine for your shoulders

    Standing bb 1 x 6
    Smith press 1 x 12
    Laterals 1 x 24

    x 3 sets

    Basically you do your first exercise, then instantly do your second and immediately follow that with the 3rd. There is no rest between the exercises. Repeat that 3 times.

    Then do some uprights or shrugs, but i prefer to train traps on back day cause they get blasted with deads.

    Try this giant set for shoulders:

    DB Side Lat raises
    DB overhead press
    DB front raises

    For Traps try this superset:

    DB shrugs
    Barbell Upright Rows

    I prefer to work Rear delts with back. Same for Traps.

    max, would you not consider working one of the isolation exercises first in a giant set a bit counter productive? You will be using to much strength on an exercise which will provide less mass.

    You would be pre-exhausting the delts before moving to the overhead pressing movement, and I find that overhead presses place more stress on the front delts.

    Ozzy, it's just a way to shock the muscle. For the most part triceps die out before the delts do. If you pre-exhaust them with raises, you can get more for you money when you do the presses. A lighter weight will probably be used for the presses. I woudln't use this set all the time, but it's a good way to get the muscles growing again.
