What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM. Would you get pissed if I called you a cheateréNow, don't take offense because we all are to some degree. See, if you're working out and you're liftingweights, you're cheating. And it's not because you're consciously trying to do it, guys. I made a point a couple weeks ago in a tutorialwe did on ab training and specifically how our hip flexors take over for our abs where I said one comment, that our bodiesare masters of compensation, and I think it
might have blown by that too quickly. See, the fact of the matter is our bodiesare so damn smart. And in order to get them to respond to ourtraining, we have to force them to not be so efficient with what we're doing in theweight room. We have to make our workouts inefficient froma standpoint of, we can't let our bodies tell us the movement patterns they want to movein because guess whaté They'll cheat. They'll cheat around your strengthdeficits. They'll make every single move we do easier.
So what I wanted to do was just showcase afew of them to show you just how our bodies take over and make exercises that should be done oneway make us do them completely different and at the same time they rob us of the resultsthat we should be seeing while doing them. So, right away, if you're going to do yourshoulder training, you can pretty much guarantee that unless you're consciously examining howyou're doing each rep, you're probably cheating on those reps, andI can tell you you're probably costing yourself some shoulder size in the process.
First of all, I call it the Traps Trap. Whenwe're doing a Side Lateral Raise, what likely happens hereé What we know, and you can alwaysanalyze this part of the exercise, you're just trying to work that dumbbell fromsomewhere down at your side to out at your side because you know that's how the exerciseis executed. But we don't know how we get there and whatmuscles are helping us do it. And a lot of times, anything that's in the area of themuscle you're trying to work will try to contribute. In this case, the traps take over to a largedegree. The Traps Trap is that while I'm trying to get this dumbbell up, I let my traps shrugand help pull up.
You can see that just by shrugging, I'm ableto elevate this arm higher, but it's not really focusing on the side delt that I'm tryingto really have do the exercise. So, we don't want that to happen. That cheatis one that's not going to help you in the long run. So what we try to do is let the arm stay,I've demonstrated this in a previous tutorial, stay low and almost like it's going undera fence. Try to reach up and under the fence. If you at least do that, you're depressingthe shoulder on this side, try to keep the trap out of it, and reachup and out. You can still bend a little bit
at the arm, but that is even a little bitof a cheat. I'm ok with it because you have to adapt byallowing for a little bit heavier weight if you do that because you're basically shorteningyour movement arm here, ok. But, if you're going to keep it straight outthen obviously now you've got more gravity here pushing down on your arm that way itbecomes essentially heavier, ok, so, that's 2 cheats in 1. Next is another area of the shoulder. It'sthe front delts, and we've done this before, too.
