The thing that sticks out to me is your delts. Both from the back and the front, they are really taking away from your look, especially your left delt.
Otherwise, great work.[/quote]
What do you mean? I dont understand, is that good or bad?
What do I work on [/quote]
he’s saying your delts are small.[/quote]
damn… i thought they were fine! thats why i love the advice!
What should i do to make them bigger? More overhead press?
well, from a competition standpoint, you don’t really have any bodyparts that are ‘fine’. You need to grow everywhere. But that being said, the answer to your question sort of depends on what you’re doing now. Some people can grow their delts reasonably well just from pressing, but others are better served by incorporating lateral raises. You probably want to be doing both, along with rear delt work.
Deltoids are a huge part of bodybuilding. You can never have delts that are too big. They make everything look better. Large delts add to your perceived overall width, they can make your waist look smaller in comparison, they can help create a look of separation from your traps, etc. And functionally, huge delts are very useful for things like pressing health.
A few options to incorporate would be dumbbell lateral raises, cable later raises, front raises, rear delt flyes on either a machine (my preference) or leaning over with dummbbells, etc. You can also use a combination of barbell/dumbbell overhead presses. If I’m going heavy/lower reps, I’ll use a barbell because it’s much easier to get into position, but for higher rep sets, dumbbells are great for range of motion.[/quote]
You are the man!
So much knowledge in a single post.
Thank you so much. I will hit every body part twice a week. How does that sound?
lol thanks. I’m not really a bodybuilder, but I have a little bit of knowledge.
twice a week per body part is a fine place to start. If you’re growing, that’s all that matters. If you notice that a particular bodypart is responding to training it twice a week well (like if you’re not recovering well from training sessions), you could train that bodypart less frequently.
A couple examples: I do pull ups every time I go to the gym, usually about 50. I have no problem recovering from these. I do deadlifts at most once per week. Sometimes it’s once every other week, because they’re so fatiguing. You just have to figure out what actually WORKS for you. I’ve seen many programs that have people bench pressing twice per week. This doesn’t work for me. I’ve tried it, and I just ended up injured. I’m not really built to press that often. Gotta learn by experience.
