I’ve been training lateral raises with some 20 lb dumb bells at home.
I do them for high repetitions and try to hold them at parallel to my shoulders.
The purpose, is I’d like to build a gymnastics style physique, ie, once I’m finished cutting, I will go on to the rings.
However, I’ve found difficult in this.
I can do almost endless reps with the 20 lbers, yet when I go to the gym and try 30 lbs, it feels like a TON.
I currently weight 220 lbs, I estimate, that I can safely get down to 180 without losing much muscle mass.
Just cut out all the fat.
However, my difficulty is, if it is this difficult just to get up to 30 lbs at 220lbs, how the hell will I ever, get up to 90 lbs at 180.
Since I could be wrong, but I feel as if, 90 lbs will be the only way to do true ring maneuvres.
What do you all think, please, If I’m entirely mislead, correct me?
I know a 90 lb lateral raise seems extreme, but, wouldn’t the be equivalent to the rings?
