Re: is military press effectiv for the delts?
when i do this movements i fell it but just in the anterior delts........i read that move is not very good for the shoulder joint because of the angle
Behind the neck militaries w/ a straightbar are bad for the joint for sure bro. I have to admit, that they make my delts grow like nothing else, but I have been trying to go with alternatives to save the body. I popped my shoulder out of place about 7 months ago doing squats. I had the bar so low on my back while going heavy, that I guess the joint couldn't take the stress anymore, and I felt it go "POP" really loud. It didn't even hurt at first, but later that night it seized up like fresh layed cement. It is still fucked up, and I have to watch shit like that(BTN-Militaries), even if I go light.
To answer your queary though, that excersise is great for front & mid delts. They better preserve the joint by going in front of the neck, but I feel that you switch stress from 50/50(Fronts & Mid Delts) as with behind the necks, to around 80/20 favoring the front delts when you go in front.
