Who does not want a V-Taper? The keys to any great rejuvenation are broad shoulders. The wider the shoulders, the narrower the waist and the better your overall condition. To appear broader in the shoulders, you must have round, full dents, and for that side elevations are often the best answer. However, you can only make raises before you reach a plateau, and eventually the same move will not be as effective.
But what if you could make new profits and shock your shoulders with the same proven behavior? This can be done by a simple adaptation to this classic elevator.
Take Your Side Pieces aside
Think about the word "lateral." What does that mean? To or from the side. Now think about when you are doing the side elevation. Most of you reading this probably start with the dumbbells in front of you before you lift them.
My recommendation is that you start the page lift with the weights – wait for that – your page. Crazy concept, I know, but stay with me. There are several reasons why this subtle adjustment makes a big difference:
Weight where you need it
Keeping the weights at your side all the time means that your page deviations are more from start to finish Doing work. When you start with the dumbbells in front of you, your fronts can not resist instinctively joining the lift group. This is not necessarily bad, but if you want to round off those shoulders, the side branches have to do most of the work – almost alone.
Starting to move with the weights on your pages means these side delays have no chance to relax, since the resistance is already where it needs to be. They remain active at rest, and they are already loaded if you want to lift the dumbbells for each repetition.
Another common bad habit of lifting sideways is to put a little buoyancy in the movement at the end of a sentence. Some lifters even swing from start to finish, making them harder to lift and able to impress anyone watching them.
Cheating on occasion is good, but every time you do it is not. This not only reduces the workload for the lateral interventions, but may also result in injury to the shoulder or back. Returning the dumbbells so that they begin and end at your sides eliminates the temptation to swing. You may need to switch back to lighter weights, but the profits will pay off.
We've already explained how to get started with the weights by your side as you do more work by your side with less weight. This makes the repetitions you are going through easier to control and results in better results.
This one shoulder technique allows you to better control the lift section of the movement. You'll be able to hold the weights at the top without slipping over your shoulder, and you can finally defy gravity and reach that important slow descent down.
Try this setting for the next workout for yourself shoulders. You need to start at the bottom of the dumbbell rack, but eventually you will be both taller and stronger with some patience and correct execution.
