If tennis elbow doesn't improve, you can try Graston, like most PT techniques evidence is limited but might work for you

Any good exercises for delt separation other than lateral raises. I'm starting to see some for the first time in a while and goal by the end of may is to round it out. Sitting in the low to mid 170's right now so pretty sure I can stay around that in weight or get up to the mid 170's ish. I'm not trying to get up to the 180-185 range again because it required just way too much eating for what I have right now lol.

 

Also, def going to try IF ferreal for the month of april and possibly may as well. @MGoCrimson do you usually 'cheat' a couple of days a week or is it your everyday routine.

Dude, really? Shall I also tell you which exercises will spot-reduce your belly fat... and the exact angle, grip, technique, tempo, and number of reps for your curls to give you biceps peaks like Kai Greene's? And how to isolate only the lower abs for the best 8 pack in the world? sarcasm.gif

FFS, don't worry about "exercises for delt separation." Just worry about building mass and then getting lean and let the chips fall where they may. (Unless you are a seasoned competing bodybuilder who uses drugs. Then you can start to worry about how specifically to sculpt each individual head of the delts.)

Amen!  Lateral raises are for 300 lbs juiced bodybuilders looking to fine tune their physiques not for 170lb people trying to build mass.  First time I have heard "round it out" like adding mass is like brushing your teeth.  Basic compound exercises are want you to need to work on.  Delt separation from lateral raises....

Delt separation? Do you mean visible muscle striations? Obvious separation of the three is generally the opposite of the aesthetic goal - you want equally developed anterior, medial, and posterior delts. Don't be another guy that neglects their posterior delts.

 

If you mean striations, that's a result of having low bodyfat. 

 

I fast between 16-18 hrs a day and have been doing so for years maybe? I don't remember.

Lateral raises are a disastrous fucking exercise

Not sure why delt implants have not taken off in popularity and refinement

Big delts are like bit tits on a girl : critical for gender dimorphism and sexual appeal

About building delts:

 

IIRC there was a EMG study that showed that regular lying presses (bench, db bench, etc) gave as much delt hypertrophy/activation/whatever as typical shoulder exercises (military presses, seated DB shoulder press, etc). Can't bother trying to find it so you just have to take that for whatever it is. 

 

Now, you may still want to do some overhead pressing to maintain shoulder health, full ROM and functioning, but then just make sure you actually do the shoulder presses through the full motion and shrug at the top. IME shoulder presses is one of those lifts where a lot of people cut the ROM short, and to no long term benefit.

 

Just to add a personal anecdote:

When I trained PL the most, I did not do much shoulder work. Maybe once every two, three weeks I did very light standing military press (~3-5 reps at 30-40% of bench 1RM). Once a week I did light and strict standing alternating DB shoulder press, just for shoulder health. I did bench 5x a week though. Shoulders grew fine.
