Let’s put an end to the elusive rear delt.
This muscle is one of the most difficult to grow and activate for a lot of people.
But with focus and consistency you can get them to grow and balance the shape and function of the shoulder.
Try this exercise out next time you train shoulders, keep it light and focus on activating / contracting the rear delt.
What exercise do you feel most to isolate the rear delt?

This tutorial from @megsquats is worth a save!
🤢👉🏻FIX YOUR OVERHEAD PRESS👉🏻😋
Blonde Meg Throwback 😝 I see a lot of new lifters neglecting a neutral spine, and forgetting to engage their glutes when first trying the overhead press. Lose that anterior pelvic tilt, and shift your hips forward to create a neutral spine, and squeeze your butt to cue lower body tightness and proper bracing of the core.
This position is guaranteed to provide a more solid base for proper pressing power. Hit the Bookmark 🔖 button to save this tip and try it in the gym!

Focus on fewer exercises. Choose the ones that work best for you and you feel the most in the muscle you’re targeting.
It’s very tempting to do a lot of different exercises in the hope of getting better results, but often, less is more. Especially if you execute the exercises with high intensity. 👌🏽💪🏽
Tertiary full body day
Despite this being a blooper day I had an amazing workout and I am definitely noticing immense strength gains.
Vid 1: Beltless squat 3x200
Matched Wednesday's squats and if it wasn't for the obvious misgroove on the 1st rep, which cost me a lot of energy, I would have gotten at least 1 extra rep.
Vid2: Machine OHP
Vid 3: Beltless deads 2x240. Strengthwise, I definitely had a new beltless rep pr in me, but I tried some new chalk today and it's safe to say it's the worst liquid chalk I ever used. Despite having waited till the chalk dried up, the bar started slipping out of my hands since the start of the set.
Very soon I'll redo this session with my old chalk tho 💪

First post to document what I’ve been doing. This page will be a combination of my own lifting with some concepts broken down that I’ll use to improve performance. Slight deload, leaving a little extra in the tank for an easy 5 reps @ 115. Not every session needs to have a PR, and to improve longevity it shouldn’t. Control and technique are always greater than sloppy, ugly, heavier sets. #overheadpress#powerlifting#powerbuilding#wendler531#performance

Are you addicted to "struggling?"
You know what I'm talking about. You like to talk about how sore you are all the time, about how training leaves you dead, about how your coach is trying to "kill you" with their workouts.
Hit a nerve?
I hope so.
The fitness industry told you if you aren't complaining or half dead by the end of your workouts then you aren't doing it right.
you like the attention and validation you get from talking about the hard stuff.
I'm all about venting and getting out how ya feel. But if the above is a constant conversation you are having, then there is an issue.
The dots truly start to connect and you will see your training take on a new meaning when you realize you don't need validation from anyone but yourself -what are you saying and doing that has you addicted to the "struggle?"

All aspects of pressing strength really seem to be coming on now.. even the standing overhead press which has always been my nemesis. This was 80kg for a good set of 6.. I know it looks like 2 plates a side which would be 100kg but the plates are only 15’s rather than 20’s. Even so I’m still fairly pleased with this because it’s one of the hardest exercises you can do.
