Curious if anyone does these and thoughts on if they may hit the side delt more. After seeing James Harrison doing javelin presses with 135lbs , i thought i’d give them a try. Although awkward as hell at first, they started to feel really good and i got a great pump in my shoulders and traps. Not to mention the core. I’ve also used just the trap bar for military presses a couple of times as a finisher and was wondering if maybe i’m hitting the side delt more. I absolutely hate side laterals etc .
I have a rackable trapbar that I sometimes use for OHP but I just don’t like it. For me, I feel like it is a injury in the making as it pushes my flexibility. You can also knock your teeth out with it if you aren’t careful.
