Just wondering if anyone has had any success building side delt with low ROM side raises.
I currently do 5/3/1 for MP & BP (cant SQ or DL at the moment).
I have noticed that once the weights/reps for MP get so that I doing less than ~5 reps (3+ & 1+ days) for more than a couple of weeks, it irritates my shoulders. I ususally throw in a couple of sets of 12-15 reps with a fat bar after the top set, using around 65-70% Tmax.
When I have added in side raises I've used really light weight, short rests and hi reps (15-25) which feels quite OK but I'm not really getting the growth I want in the side delt.
I was considering using a heavier weight but with restricted ROM (say to ~45degrees) as full range with anything heavy irritates the shoulders.
Comments / suggestions gratefully received.
