Never Make These 5 Shoulder Training Mistakes !!!

Never Make These 5 Shoulder Training Mistakes !!!

Avoiding these common shoulder training mistakes will keep you injury free and on the road to building cannonball-sized delts!

#1: Going Very Heavy With Behind-the-Neck Presses

Going heavy with your presses isn’t a mistake. That’s how you build size and strength in your shoulders. But when you’re using max weights for very low reps, stick with presses in which you lower the bar to the front of your head. Amateur bodybuilder and sports-medicine doctor Guillermo Escalante, Dsc, CSCS warns: “When you lower the bar, the deltoids are lengthening to a fully stretched position, but they’re also at their weakest.

The highest risk of injury in any sport occurs when the shoulder is abducted and externally rotated. Loading up a huge amount of weight is just asking for a tear.” Although the joints of some younger bodybuilders may be more resilient, for many others the risk is real. Keep your weights moderate if you’re doing behind-the-neck presses.

#2: Straightening Your Arm on Lateral Raises

Lateral raises targeting the middle delt are done with a slight bend in the elbow. The problem arises when the elbow isn’t locked throughout the movement. Too often you see guys with a 90-degree bend at the bottom, but their arm straightens to 180 degrees at the top, especially when they do one arm at a time. Straightening the arm is called elbow extension, and the triceps — not the debts — is responsible for this action. You can’t open and close the elbow joint during execution. Keep it locked in a slightly bent position.

#3: Straightening Your Arm on Rear Delt Exercises

The same blunder involving elbow extension frequently makes its way over to rear delt exercises, most commonly bent-over lateral raises with dumbbells or cables. When you extend at the elbow, you turn a perfectly good rear-delt exercise into one for triceps. Again the key is to lock your arm in a slightly bent position for the duration of the set. If you’re not getting the hang of it, practice doing the reverse fly on the pec-deck machine, which requires you to maintain a slight bed for the entire exercise.

#4 Hands Too Close on Upright Rows

To target middle delts, your upper arms should travel out to your sides during upright rows. That’s not what happens, however, when you use a close grip. Your elbows are drawn forward as your shoulders are internally rotated. That movement isn’t kind to your shoulder joints. A much wider grip (hands about shoulder width apart) allows your elbows to kick out high and wide, perfect for targeting your middle delts. (The front delts get some work, too.) Even if you’re looking to add variety to your routine, skip the close-grip version.

#5: Neglecting Your Rotator-Cuff Muscles

Sure, you want big shoulders, and that means choosing exercises that target the front, middle and rear delts. However, a smaller group of four rotator cuff muscles also work in tandem to help stabilize your shoulder joint (and that includes during presses for the chest). As your delts grow stronger over time, and if you’re not also training your rotator-cuff muscles, a strength imbalance arises that makes the rotators much more susceptible to injury and chronic pain.

Doing specific rotator cuff work with extremely light dumbbells, cables and bands may not look impressive, but it’s a necessity for long-term pain-free training.

See How To Get Bigger Arms In Three Steps !

Let’s be honest for a second, when working ut, you obviously want to get bigger overall. However, the main thing that people like to have is big arms. Sometimes it seems like the arms are the last thing to grow when you workout consistently. Why is this? How come your chest and back grow at a much faster rate than you arms? In this article we are going to be going over three ways to make your arms bigger.

1-Stop doing isolation movements

If you are trying to focus on arm size, one of the first things you need to do is stop doing isolation movements such as curls and extensions. These focus only on one muscle group, we want to focus on the exercises that hit all the muscle groups. Examples of this include the bench press, dip, pull up, and push up.

2-Work your triceps more

When most people start to work out in order to get bigger arms, they seem to make their main focus their biceps. Don’t get me wrong, the bicep is a good looking muscle, but did you know that the tricep is actually 2/3 of your arm size? If you want to get massive arms you need to start focusing more on the triceps.

3-Don’t just do arm exercises

I know it might sound kind of weird if I tell you one of the best ways to get bigger arms is to work your whole body, but that is the truth. If you work your whole body you will produce more testosterone. The more testosterone you produce the bigger your arms will be.

Best 3 Exercises You Need To Do To Develop Monstrous Delts

Best 3 Exercises You Need To Do To Develop Monstrous Delts

Nothing looks as cool as a pair of 3D delts bulging under your shirt like two cannonballs and you know it. Besides their aesthetic appeal, strong shoulders are vital for optimal performance and a well-rounded, impressive physique. But before you hit the gym for a heavy shoulder workout, it’s very important to get a basic insight of your delt’s anatomy.

This article will help you skyrocket your shoulder development by helping you understand the muscles you’re targeting and providing you with three great moves for maximum delt recruitment.

The anatomy

The shoulders are comprised of the relatively large deltoid muscles, which have three heads – anterior, medial and posterior – and the smaller rotator cuff muscle group, made up of the teres minor, infraspinatus, supraspinatus and subscapularis, which is responsible for supporting the ball and socket joint and assisting all overhead movements. The deltoid muscles are primarily responsible for arm abduction, i.e. moving the arm away from the body in the frontal plane of motion. The anterior head is mainly involved in shoulder abduction, for example during lateral raises, but it also works together with the subscapularis and lats to internally rotate the humerus bone.

But the most important thing you need to know is that the majority of muscle fibers are contained in the medial region, while the posterior region comes second. In other words, the majority of your delt’s mass will be concentrated in the medial and posterior heads. However, the all-time favorite delt exercise, the overhead press, primarily hits the anterior part of your delts, which makes it less than adequate for building huge delts, not to mention that the anterior head already gets more than enough stimulation from all pressing and fly movements you’ve been working your chest with.
So instead of performing endless sets of the overhead press, try these moves to stimulate optimal overall delt growth:

#1. Lateral cable raises

Suggested sets and reps:3 sets x 12-20 reps

The lateral raise is an excellent muscle builder on its own, but performing it with cables will allow you to place constant tension on the medial head of the delts that will result with better gains. To emphasize its effectiveness even further, make sure to bend your torso a bit forward while performing the movement.

#2. Incline dumbbell lateral raises

Suggested sets and reps: 4 sets x 12-15 reps

The main perk of this exercise is that it allows you to safely increase the load you’re working with, thereby enabling you to achieve maximum hypertrophy. Utilizing different angles and rep schemes will help you target the medial and posterior heads more effectively.

#3. Reverse machine flies

Suggested sets and reps: 4 sets x 10-15 reps

After exhausting your medial heads, it’s time to focus on the posterior region, and the reverse machine fly is the ultimate movement for that purpose. However, for better isolation of the posterior head, perform it in a slow and controlled manner and instead of going through the full range of motion, use half reps (stop at the point when your arms reach your side).

Twice-a-week Resistance/HIIT Routine Combo That Builds Muscle and Burns Fat

Twice-a-week Resistance/HIIT Routine Combo That Builds Muscle and Burns Fat

Most people think that it would suit their lifestyle to go to the gym 5 or 6 times per week, the way the popular fitness and bodybuilding programs in magazines prescribe, thinking it would give them the best results as fast as possible and build their ideal physique. But then life gets in the way and the majority start missing workout sessions and after some time simply stop going to the gym altogether.

A wise fitness coach once said that your workout routine should fit your lifestyle and not the other way around. If your current lifestyle does not allow you to go to the gym several times per week, then this twice-a-week resistance training and HIIT program will help you with your muscle building and fat loss goals.

 What constitutes a full-body training program?

A full-body training program consists of exercises targeting all the muscle groups in one workouts session, with the majority of exercises being compound exercises. Bodybuilding legends such as Reg Park, who was Arnold Schwarzenegger’s idol and Leroy Colbert have been the main advocates of full-body training programs over half-a-decade ago. It is quite unfortunate that this type of training has become increasingly neglected over the decades even though it’s one of the most effective types of training.

The benefits of using a full-body training program:

  1. Less time spent in the gym

Since a full-body training program will require you to go to the gym 2 or 3 times a week at most, it will leave you with a lot of free time to do other things. It will give you the time to fulfill other life obligations. Almost everyone can train in the gym twice at any time during the week without greatly disturbing his/her daily routine.

  1. Increased rate of muscle recovery

For some people, it can be very difficult to properly recover from workout sessions, even when they’re training very different muscle groups. Training this frequently will not allow them to use increasingly heavier weights and continue making progress over time. A full-body training program gives you lots of rest days and maximizes the recovery of every muscle group.

  1. Reduced CNS (Central Nervous System) fatigued

Each time you do a heavy training session where the majority of exercises are compound exercises, involving multiple muscle groups, you not only fatigue your muscle but also you CNS. Considering that you’ will be training every other day or after every two days using this program, CNS fatigue will be decreased significantly.

  1. Intensity remains the same

We’ve all had bad days in the gym where we weren’t feeling our best but gathered the will to still push through the workout. Everyone experiences days when the body is too fatigued and lacks the proper intensity. Since full-body training routines are time-flexible they allow for improved recovery, which leaves the intensity uncompromised. You are much more likely to feel more energized and able to lift weights with maximal intensity.  It’s worth noting that increasing the training intensity over time is essential for making muscle strength and hypertrophy progress.

  1. Burns more calories compared to standard training splits

Taking into consideration that you’ll be engaging your entire body in a single training session, you eventually end up burning more calories compared to using other training splits. The more compound exercises you perform, the greater the number of calories burned by your body.

The benefits of doing HIIT cardio:

  1. It burns a lot more calories in a shorter amount of time

There was a study done which concluded that doing HIIT cardio burns up to 25 to 30% more calories compared to other cardio activities such as sprinting, cycling or weight training.

  1. It keeps the metabolic rate elevated for several hours post-workout

After finishing a HIIT cardio session the body will still be burning calories because of the boost the metabolism gets. This happens because of a process called “Excess Post Oxygen Consumption” which occurs after you’ve gone through an intense physical activity.

  1. It supports muscle building

Compared to other types of cardio, HIIT is anabolic and can actually help you gain some muscle. However, the muscle mass gain is primarily in the muscles which are being used the most like the core and leg muscles.

  1. You don’t need any equipment

There are lots of ways in which you can do HIIT cardio. But you don’t need any fancy equipment in order to do it. It can be done in any outdoor environment.

30-Day Sit-ups, Squats And Crunches Challenge

30-Day Sit-ups, Squats And Crunches Challenge

Taking up a 30-day fitness challenge is a great way to boost your regular routine and force even the most stubborn layers of body fat melt. As we all know, in order to get the best results possible, our bodies need to be surprised once in a while with a complete change in routine and intensity. And since fat burning can be most troublesome in the stomach, thigh and butt area for a lot of people, in this article we’d like to offer you the ideal challenge that will strengthen your core muscles and snap your lower body into shape in no time!

Sculpt a firm and lean body with the 30-day Core Challenge

The exercises:

#1. Sit-ups

Sit-ups work your abs like no other exercise. To perform them, lie flat on your back with knees slightly bent and lock your hands behind your head. While breathing out, lift your upper body until it creates a V-shape with your thighs. Hold for a second, then lower yourself back down.


The squat is the king of bodyweight exercises for a good reason – it literally hits every major muscle in your body, while helping you build a strong core and powerful legs. To perform it properly, stand with your feet shoulder width apart. First flex your knees and hips, then start sitting back with the hips while maintaining the back neutral. Continue lowering your body down until your thighs become parallel (or below parallel) to the floor. Keep your back straight and your head and chest up all throughout the movement.

#3. Crunches

Crunches are great for targeting the abs, obliques, hip flexors, glutes and thighs. To perform crunches, lie flat on your back with your knees bent at a 90-degree angle and feet flat on the ground. Place your hands on either side of your head without locking your fingers and keep the elbows in. As you exhale, squeeze your abdominal muscles and raise your shoulders off the ground while keeping your lower back on the floor. Hold the top position for a moment, concentrating on the contraction in the abs, then slowly return to the starting position.

The routine:

 DAY 1 10 10 25
 DAY 2 20 15 30

The 4 Healthiest, Muscle Building Vegetables You Should Include in Your Diet

The 4 Healthiest, Muscle Building Vegetables You Should Include in Your Diet

If you’re on a quest to build more muscle and if you’re reading this article, chances are you definitely are, then beside the protein which we’re sure you are already consuming in copious amounts, you should also make sure you’re not missing out on the top muscle-building veggies that can help you tremendously in this pursuit. The majority of skinny guys cut out vegetables from their diet almost entirely because of the fact that they’re much lower in calories and when your goal is to consume 4000+ calories a day, you can get an idea of how difficult it is to stuff all that food in.

When you’re filled with food up to your eyeballs, eating a plate full of broccoli is the last thing you want to be doing. However, there are lots of ways to solve this problem. First of all, there’s no need to consume a big amount of these muscle-building vegetables to start noticing results. Provided that you eat at least one cup serving with some of the meals during the day, you’ll be well on your way to meeting your caloric or protein daily requirements.

These vegetables contain lots of the essential nutrients your body needs to optimally build new muscle mass, which means you would be sabotaging your progress in the gym, if you didn’t consume them. If you still have a hard time getting them all in, you could considering mixing them in your favorite sauces, as this will eliminate the hard texture that you experience when eating them raw or whole. Let’s delve into the top 4 muscle-building vegetables:

1. Broccoli

Broccoli almost always takes first place on any list of healthy vegetables and not without a reason. It’s packed with healthy nutrients, such as antioxidants that will help you fight off numerous diseases and it is also an excellent potassium source which will keep the muscle contractions going strong. Another great thing about broccoli is that it can be cooked in numerous ways. You can steam, stir-fry or add it in a salad and eat it raw. Whichever way you choose to prepare, it is a must in your muscle-building plan.

2. Asparagus

The second entry on our list of top muscle-building vegetables is another one that’s extremely easy to cook and can be consumed and mixed in with lots of different meals. Compared to other vegetables it is relatively low in calories, which doesn’t mean you should load up on it too much, because it can fill you up pretty fast. Instead, have 3-4 spears at every meal. This will be the perfect amount to get all the essential nutrients in.

3. Cabbage

Third on the list is cabbage. It’s potent muscle-building vegetable that has also been proven to prevent development of cancerous tissue, something every man and woman should be at least somewhat concerned with. Because of the fact that we’re constantly exposed to lost of toxins in our food and environment, if you aren’t taking some measures to protect yourself, you will inevitably put yourself at risk. You could eat some red cabbage with your stir-fries or mix it with your salad.

4. Mushrooms

And last but not least, mushrooms. They are another excellent muscle building vegetable that is perfect since they are low in calories but at the same time have a high content of protein. Taking into account that consuming enough protein with your daily diet is absolutely essential to building more muscle, this simply cannot be neglected. Mushrooms can be added in almost any meal – stir-fries, added to salads, eaten raw or added in a wrap or some type of pita.

Eat them in whichever way you prefer, just make sure that you do it often. This is why, if you’re planning on getting the most out of your muscle-building diet, you should make sure that you incorporate mushrooms and make them a staple of your diet. It is recommended that you eat them as much as possible and include them in as many meals as possible.
