I’ve followed your stuff on Tnation for quite a while now but this is my first post on the forums.
I’m currently doing the layer system, doing high pulls twice a week, benching once, squatting once and OHP’ing once. The system has worked very effectively so and I’m loving it.
However, I’ve found that my shoulders are quite lacking at the moment compared to the rest of me (especially the lateral head) and as a result I don’t look as wide as I would like.
How would you recommend I go about incorporating some extra shoulder work with the layer system to help bring my shoulders up to par?
I know you are very busy, so any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
Here’s a shoulder workout I’ve been using with one of my bodybuilding client who need to bring his delts up… he has narrow clavicle so it’s hard for him to look wide, but he is having some very cool changes right now.
Savickas press (overhead press, seated on the floor with extended legs)
5 x 5*
Behind the beck overhead press (I like this one for shoulder width more than press from the front)
5 x 5*
3.1 Lateral raises 8 reps
3.2 Push press 5 reps
Do the superset 3 times
*Same weight for all sets, only go up when you can complete all 5 sets for 5 reps. Getting in 3 reps on a set is fine, but that means that you don’t go up in weight for the next workout.
