Hey, guys! I have here another great exercise for building massive shoulders: the dumbbell shoulder press. This one is always part of bodybuilders’ shoulder routines because it targets the middle deltoids (delts), giving the shoulder that overall roundness.

However, this only makes up part of your shoulder routine. It is not supposed to be the whole routine in itself. In order to get big shoulders, other exercises must be included. They include the barbell/Smith machine Military presses and barbell front raises (front delts) and bent-over lateral raises (rear delts) among others. I will post video articles about these other shoulder exercises soon, so stay tuned.

Important points to remember:

  • pick a weight you can do 8-10 reps with
  • press up with your shoulders, keep your wrist straight at all times
  • lower the weights up to about 90 degrees in a smooth, controlled motion
  • never bring your elbows back because this can screw up your rotator cuffs – very dangerous!

 

 

Give this one a try if you haven’t already. I promise you if you do this consistently & with proper form, you will notice your shoulders gaining size in no time. Don’t forget to Like, Comment & Subscribe.

Wide-Grip Lat Pulldown

Wide-Grip Lat Pulldown

What up, people? Today, I wanted to give you something that I find to be really helpful in the back development department: the Wide-Grip Lat Pulldown.  Lat pulldowns are another great exercise to help you get that wide back that gets hoes in da sack :-D. But doing it wrong will result in very slow development, if any. This video isn’t so much about why it’s so great an exercise but more of performing it with correct form in order to get the most out of it.

Important points to remember:

  • place your arms about just beyond shoulder width
  • go wider as your back widens
  • squeeze the bar til about mid-chest
  • release bar in a slow & controlled motion back up
  • if you feel any shoulder pain, it means your grip’s too wide

 

 

I hope this helps as well. Try this out with proper form, with weights that allow you to go up to failure in 8-12 reps. Let me know how this feels. Good luck.

As always, to your bodybuilding success :-)

 

T-Bar Row

T-Bar Row

Hello, nation! A lotta people ask me how to get that wide, V-tapered back.  Well, there are a number of exercises that you can do for that. Pull-ups, pull-downs, dumbbell rows, bent-over rows, seated rows  and T-bar rows. This article will show how to do one of my favorite (and one of the best) exercises to give you that back that gets hoes in the sack, that V-taper that makes hoes wanna rape ya: the T-bar row.

Funny thing is, a lotta people tend to shy away from this one so much so that you don’t see many doing it nowadays. Well, it can be very hard to do with proper form especially since you’re bending over & trying to balance yourself with your legs. But nevertheless, the T-bar row in my opinion should be included into one’s workout regimen.

Important points to remember:

  • different grips will produce different results
  • the close-grip version is a lat-dominant exercise
  • the wide-grip version is an upper-back-dominant exercise
  • stay parallel to 30 degrees to the floor when doing the close-grip version
  • stay 30-45 degrees when doing the wide-grip version
  • squeeze with your lats/upper back to pull the bar up
  • return with a slow, controlled motion back to the starting position

 

I hope this video helps. Try this out for a coupla weeks and tell me if you see any positive changes in your lats and upper back. Good luck!

Once again, to your bodybuilding success :-)
