WHAT ARE THE BEST EXERCISES FOR THE PIVOT POINTS?
I’m cutting right now, but, I’d like to work more on my pivot points when I get back to training. I’d like to put back on a few more lbs of muscle that I lost while cutting and shape my physique for pivot points.
The pivot points are: (the parts of the muscle are more or less the furthest away from the belly of the muscle; its supposed to look pleasing to the eye)
Side and Rear Deltoids - Wide shoulders require well-developed side and rear deltoids. Attention to these two body parts not only contributes to making your waist and hips look smaller, but makes your upper back distinctly more prominent, as well.
Upper Pecs - A “big chest” without well-developed upper Pecs, leaves the eyes of viewers with a disappointing “droopy” image. The more developed your chest is near the clavicles, the better your entire chest appears.
High and Mid Lats - Well-developed lats, right under the pits of your arms, that flow into a heart shape not only make you look wider, but also make your entire waist area pleasing to the eye. Be careful training this area. Too much lat development near your waist makes your trunk look shorter, resulting in a “bunched-up look.”
Lower Biceps - A small arm only looks smaller with a big space (or gap) between your elbow and where the biceps mass begins. Lower biceps are a must have for good-looking arms that just hang impressively without flexing.
Long Head of the Triceps - Also known as the “outer head,” the long head of the triceps, when well developed, appears to run all the way down to your elbow. Another “must” for arms that hang remarkably.
Forearms - Since forearms are often in full display, they are obvious eye-catchers when they are well developed. Vastus Intermas Ã??Ã?Â¢??Commonly referred to as the “tear drop,” the vastus internus is the muscle of the lower, inner thigh. When flexed, the shape itself is beautiful. When well developed, it makes an otherwise stringy thigh appear balanced when viewed from the front.
Vastus Lateralis - The muscles of the outer thighs are often called “thigh rods” and, when well developed, the vastus lateralis create a visually dramatic sweep on the outer quads.
Lower Calves - This body part requires extreme concentration for simple development. To build a set of ideal, “diamond-shaped” calves, peak contractions with moderate resistance is essential.
Hamstrings - The “rear leg biceps” complete your physique from the backside. Leave your ego at the door when training the hamstrings; peak contractions bring this area to life.
