    Which exercise is your favorite in terms of adding size to the deltoids?

    For me I like seated db presses..can go up to a 60lb db in each hand. Bent over laterals are also another great one I like.

    I like seated DB presses but my gym only goes up to 100lb DB's. In fact, it's my favorite delt exercise.

    I wish I could go with the 100's but shoulder issues kept me back (my gym goes up to 130lbs db's)

    Facepulls are also great too!

    Barbell presses, you can use big boy weight then! 100lbs ain't a bad db press. You can get some quality squeeze with those!

    I have tried front presses and the heavier the weight the worse my form is. For some reason, my back begins to arch and I feel like I am doing a standing incline bench press.

    I am thinking about going against the grain and giving behind the neck press a try. I may even start out with the smith machine just to keep form in check.

    Nah, check the ego. Quality reps over weight all day. Just make sure you're getting a good squeeze and staying under tension, the weight will take care of itself in time.

    If this is true then you have a very weak core, and if you care about staying healthy and injury free then you'd be smart to start fixing that

    That's a very real possibility. Never crossed my mind.

    Side raises for 200 Alex. Honest front delts get hit all the time, between incline bench and standing barbell presses I think most people neglect the medial deltoid, which in a tank top side delt is a must.

  17. Lately Ive been doing standing presses with a ez-curl bar .
    Drop sets 175/150/135/120/105 . Then I go into dropset standing DB laterals with 25/20/15/12 lb'ers.

    Ive been working my rear delts also on back days...

    Push press then face pulls. My delts have always overpowered my upper body

    Dumbell press, upright rows, side raises, reverse flyes.

    Number one has to go to the side raises though. The other heads get a decent workload with a good program, without isolation moves.

    I've never done drop sets for lateral raises, sounds delicious though. I'll give it a try Thursday.
