Shortcut To Size: Phase 1, Week 4, Day 25

Build bolder shoulders, stronger traps, and carved calves. Time to press, flye, and raise the roof on your results.

This workout calls for 3-5 reps per set of heavy shoulder work. Warm up to your new weight slowly -- it's okay if you don't find the exact load on your first set. When you've got heavy objects overhead, it's best to play it safe until you're sure.

Track your progress, tune into your music, dominate your drop sets, and shock your shoulders with this powerful session.

Day 25: Shoulders/Traps/Calves

Definitely had to switch to barbell shrugs this round. Not nearly enough weight with dumbbells.

I found my grip strength was giving out before I could reach failure with dumbbells, and I haven't gotten around to buying wraps yet. Decided to go with Smith Machine Shrugs - works much better for myself.

Yep Barbell shrugs are the way to go. 150 dumbells aren't enough weight for me. I managed 435 lbs on the barbell today. I really enjoy this program. Looking forward to next weeks higher reps and lighter weight.

Ditto...I use the 110 dumbbell shrugs for warmup. Loaded up a cool 385 the other day and went to town. I love shrugs. Although, when the weight gets super heavy, it's hard to tell if you are even moving much lol.

By the sound of it you may have an impingement or something that is inhibiting you from performing these moves correctly. Get somebody thats qualified and experienced to check your form for deficiencies. Other than that I'd see a specialist to see what your problem could be. But if an exercise hurts (the bad kind if hurt) stop doing it and seek alternatives rather than risking serious long term damage.

Just coming to the end of Phase 1 now, it's been a real eye opener so far! Do you think it's a good idea to throw in upright rows after the dumbbell shrug, for traps?

Gym only goes to 110 dumbells.. BUT! Instead of switching to barbells I used the 110s made sure I got a Huge range of motion with a BIG squeeze at the top. Good decision.
