Im doing madcows 5X5 and everything is going great except my shoulders dont appear to be getting any bigger while the rest of me is gaining great.
This might sound strange but ive gained on all lifts except the military press. I use an olympic bar, behind hte neck - ive tried infront of the neck but my form goes and my back arches too much. Ive tried bringing the weight right down , but always reach the same sticking point around 40kgs or so on the last set. i can never quite bring out the 5 reps and therfore reset week after week.
I have put weight on through big eating and bill starr(im on week 6 now ) have added mass to my chest, arms and legs, but my shoulders havent moved at all. Infact - my triceps/biceps have responded so well that they stick out beyond my shoulders giving even more of an impression of being too narrow.
I dont want to fuck with the 5X5 at all, but I dont like looking lopsided and… I used to fry my shoulders twice a week with raises, presses until hey hurt like hell the next day. Now they dont hurt and they still dont grow… Any suggestions? Do 3X8 side raises every session? shut up and keep going with it? Does anyone here have a particular bodypart that just bugs them too?
