thanks

That shoulder workout you linked to was Thib’s HSS-100 routine, so I’m a smidge confused. Thib did have an awesome article all about Gironda’s methods, “The Gironda System”.

And we talked about some of Gironda’s training info on a few threads, like this one, about his 15x4 protocol.

As for the neck press, a few guys around the forum have tried it, but I actually haven’t given it a go, myself. If I recall, just as many folks love it as hate it. So, test it out and see how it goes.

Also, if you want to read up on Gironda, "Unleashing the Wild Physique is one of the best (only?) books about his entire philosophy. http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FUnleashing-Wild-Physique-Vince-Gironda%2Fdp%2F0806978880%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1182225189%26sr%3D8-1&tag=coluctrain-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325
You might be able to find a copy at a library, too, but Thib’s article above goes over a lot of the key info.

thanks for the info.
in that link i think i referred to the gironda dumbell swing and just the overall deltoid exercises. i think i will try them since my delts seem to be the last part to grow.
