Some shoulder focus today with a little bit of pulling. I want you guys to FOCUS on "feeling the muscle" on your accessory lifts. Nobody cares how much you can lateral raise - what matters is if the right muscles are working. Sure, when we're working big compound movements like squats and bench presses, weight on the bar is king - but when we're doing these isolation movements, you need to FEEL it working, so pick a weight light enough to accomplish that!
I'm anticipating plenty of feedback, so leave a comment with how the workout felt, any problems you encountered, or any questions you have. EVERYBODY should be leaving a comment detailing their performance in each portion!
