In order to bench big weight, one occasionally has to make specific modifications to your shoulder training. It’s always a good idea to mix things up anyway, but I’ve found some changes to be especially helpful for powerlifting. Here are a couple things you can try:

  • to take a little added stress off the shoulder from the heavy bench pressing, keep your upper arms parallel to the ground at the bottom of the movement
  • barbell partials are a great way to hit the deeper fibers of the delts
  • try a semisupinated grip on dumbbell presses

Stay Strong!
