I sort of experience the same for incline press when I use the machine or even DB presses. I feel it more in my shoulders and that distracts me with form or focusing that mind to muscle connection. .
Currently on another one of my threads a user had set me in a routine direction, but curious to maybe your advice also…
For the time being I am at Planet Fitness. Trust me I cannot stand it, but I use it because it’s better than nothing and for economical purposes until I can take care of some other things…
With that said, I am beginner level, in the gym less than 6 months looking to build strength and muscle.
What kind of routine would you suggest for a gym such as this and their limited equipment for those core compound movements that are the staples of building muscle?
Currently the user’s suggestion is:
DB bench press
Rear delt exercise such as face pulls
& 50 pullups or chinups throughout the work out itself…
If I have time an energy to do any other accessories, I can do rope pull downs, hammer curls, DB military press, side raises and whatever abs…
As it is new, I so far like the routine.
Just wanted to know your thoughts as I really want to be on a stable routine that I can get good solid results for the next few months before it’s time to switch things up a bit.
Because of this type of gym, I overthink routine a lot. If I was in a normal gym I’d be doing the stronglifts 5x5 or SS routine, something similar. .
