I’ve been looking for samples of shoulder specialization programs and I came across CT’s Shoulders Overhaul. http://www.T-Nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance/shoulders_overhaul
The article is quite old (2004) and I’m wondering if this is still considered a goood program.
I’m asking mainly because I see exercises like the Snatch Grip BTN Press and Ahrens Press.
CT writes “I know the behind the neck press has received a lot of bad press recently and I must admit that I don’t like it either. However, I find the snatch grip (very wide grip) press to be safe and very effective at building huge deltoids! I used it myself extensively to solidify my receiving position in the snatch and really noticed a huge improvement in shoulder development from doing this exercise alone!”
So he clearly states that with a snatch grip it is much easier on the shoulders but I’m curious to know what people (and CT himself) think about this today?
I was hoping to ask CT himself but I see that TNation no longer has the author’s section like it used to.
