  • Shoulder Exercise Advice

    My current shoulder exercises are seated DB press, standing BB press, and standing Swiss bar press. I want to switch out one of the standing presses for seated BB press. Should I do seated and standing BB presses, or should I leave the standing Swiss bar press in there for grip variation?

    Thanks for any advice. I know I overanalyze things sometimes, but it really helps to talk it out on the board.

    I would say mix it up from workout to workout as much as possible. It will target different parts of the shoulder and make your workouts less monotonous.

      Thanks, but I was asking in regards to DC training which calls for sticking to 3 exercises for a while to make progress on them.

        Ah, my bad, I read your post too quickly!
        Personally, I would keep the Swiss bar press.

          If you are looking for something new I really like bench face mac hine presses.

            It seems a lot of your pressing is in front of your head, why not a behind the neck press? Smith behind the neck presses would allow for nice variation.

              Isolateral dumbbell upright rows.

              Imagine a compound movement for laterals; hammers lateral head pretty good. Can progress very well and go pretty heavy so you can maneuver a lot as far as rep ranges and weight. I feel safer (less nagging feeling of impingement). I like to do the strong side first so my weak side has to MAN THE FUCK UP to get the weight up

                My gym doesn't have a smith machine. I've had some shoulder problems in the past too. That's why I don't do behind the neck presses.

                I might try the isolateral DB upright row that theroymccoy suggested. I never thought of upright row as a good DC exercise, but that variation looks like it could work.
