As a bodybuilder and a person familiarizing yourself with the gym, many go through a common evolution.
Stage 1– Bench, Curl, Protein shake. This rhythmic pattern makes sense to someone new to the gym. When you look at your first muscle magazine, what do you see? Well-developed pecs and arms followed by a protein ad. You put 2 and 2 together and presume this is the formula to the physique you want.
Stage 2 – Bench Day, Arm Day, Misc. Upper Body Day. You realize that your upper body cannot grow on bench and curls alone and throw in pull-ups and misc. tricep movements.
Stage 3– Split Routine – You’ve seen enough printed routines that you now have a better sense of program design. This mean you have a leg day, and anyone that’s bigger than you probably doesn’t squat or is on some “anabolic” substance.
Stage 4– You’ve found a routine you like and have become more likeable in the gym. You begin to understand that maybe you don’t know everything there is about gainz.
Stage 5– You reach out to the people that are more experienced, then you to bring up weak points and further educate yourself on becoming better.
Right around stage 4, you may start to notice imbalances in your physique. For one, your anterior delt is much more developed than your rear delt. It then makes sense to modify your program. You realize that shoulder training is more than looking simply wide but developing a 3-D cap. For those who are now at this stage, these are some of our Top 10 Rear Delt Tips For Mass:
Day 1 – Back, Traps and Rear Delts
Day 2- Chest and Bi’s
Day 3- Rest
Day 4- Legs
Day 5- Shoulders (featuring rear delts) and Tri’s
Day 6- Rest
Day 7- Rest
