I want that ‘chest/delt’ tie-in (separation) look. Well I want to work towards it not that I expect it to just pop up overnight.
The obvious thing to do is to work on the upper chest and front delt via incline work and front raises.
My question is how do you know if you’re ‘front delt dominant’? Especially from a visual perspective
Just asking so I know whether to start doing front raises consistently or not. Wouldn’t want to develop any shoulder imbalances in the long run.
Any comments will be much appreciated
Front Delt dominance is pretty common mostly with people starting out. I mean you use it in just about every pressing movement and we all know how much everyone loves to press heavy shit.
IMO aesthetically this can be improved or prevented with plenty of isolation work with your middle delt (lateral raises) and your rear delt (bentover raises or rev pec deck In addition to your rowing movements)
every now and again i go heavy with lateral raises, but I’ve found the delt heads respond best to sets of 15 and 20.
Edit: oh and i always aim to have my lateral raise equal to or stronger than my front raise.
