- not just an alternative exercise because you already have a shoulder injury

- easier on the joints.. good. do more weight, do more reps. rest shorter.. etc.

- the big compounds already tax the lower back. no need to take it easy on shoulder work because the standing DB press uses a lot of lower back too. seated ftw

- been doing 20s everyday on most strong days for months now.  not a single shoulder joint tightness.

- forget the BD press.. if you can DB shoulder press it.. you'd most likely be able to DB press it too. not the other way around.

I am interested in this. I feel the back stress with standing bb ohp and i am still girly weak, max is sth like 100lbs*8. In the push-press 5 reps with ~120lbs really stressed my lower back.
How about setting up? I dumped incline db press exactly because it became too much of a pain in the ass to setup when i reached using ~60lbs dbs

I've been looking for a bit of extra shoulder work because of all the heavy bench I've been doing. L shoulder sometimes feels a little sore next day. Might work some of these in.

For my whole life I barely had any delts. My triceps would always take over the movement (also barely had pecs for this reason as well).

Anyone else experience this?


FWIW:

So what I did was STOP overhead pressing and only do lateral raises. Train the triceps less.
Also did wide grip on bench to focus more on pecs and less on triceps.

Result: pecs are now one of my BEST body parts, and my upper arms are bigger than my tris/bis now.
