Growth Factor Training Shoulder


#1

Excellent program. I made it through Superset # 4 and the tank was empty. Quick questions:

  1. In the video under Superset # 3 Shoulder Circles/Scott Press/Press, it shows the individual doing DB Lateral raises, but in the program, it calls for DB presses...which one is it?

  2. Why are there no exercises for the rear delts?

Thanks again!

Here's a link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9KqFMH_uqg

I answered both questions in the past.

  1. Both versions are good. GF training is all about being under tension for 50-70 seconds, the actual exercises used in a complex aren’t THAT important.

  2. I train rear delts with back since it has more in common with the back when it comes to function.

How many exercies in heavy shoulders and chest?

Shoulders 2 heavy 5x5 and no assit ecercies?

When chest heavy I also train shoulders so 1 heavy and 2 assist for chest?

I could also add some superset for chest on the firts day with shoulders.

The 3 supersets for shoulders growth, do we do each superset 3 sets?
And what would an example of chest assist be?

Thank you.

The 3 super sets for shoulder growth, do we do each super set 3 or even maybe 4 sets?
Also, what are examples of chest assist exercises?

Thank you.
