Thread: Activating too much set on chest movements

    Activating too much set on chest movements

    Ok. Something changed and now I fry my front delts on chest movements. I can't figure it out. Anyone have ideas or suggestions?

    What specific lifts?

    Didn't change grip? Maybe form or elbow angle?

    Can try doing rear delts inbetween sets/when you feel the pump to move the blood from the front

    I'll usually start hitting my front delts on barbell or dumbbell flat bench if i am bringing the bar up to high, meaning closer to my head

    What exercises? Has anything changed? Are you training delts before hitting chest?

    hey brother... which specific lifts are you noticing this on? did you change anything in the movement, weight, etc?

    Sounds like the elbows might be flaring…also wrists are closing down toward inner forearm

    Flat bench. Incline dumbbell are my focus right now and it's definitely hurting performance. I haven't seen anything physically change with form. I try to keep the same grip and come down with my elbows close to a 45* from my body. And hit my body just below nipple I believe lol. It gets to the point where I just want to rest my arms on the bar in between sets.
    Unless it's just extreme pumps? But still shouldn't be all in my delts.

    You have anterior rotation of your scapula causing your delts to rotate forward and your chest to shorten. I'll text you tomorrow about how to fix that.
