    Extreme burn working shoulders?

    I love working shoulders, one of my favorite bodyparts. I alternate excercises pretty often but stick to 12 sets, either cable or dumbell presses, lateral raises, and upright rows. I get an extreme burn almost incapacitating! It's like the lactic acid doesn't stop well after the workout is done. It's not an unhealthy pain but it is very intense....anyone else with shoulders or other body parts?

    I get a ridiculous pump and sometimes a burn in my delts when I do Arnold Dumbbell presses. I also get a wicked calf burn when I do supersets with standing and seated calf raises.

    I am not crazy about the burn but I am falling more and more in love with the pump. Some are better than others but the worst I ever had was pretty damn good!

    Respect,

    Sometimes when I'm doing shrugs I get a pain, like a pinched nerve , in my right delt.

    Re: Extreme burn working shoulders?

    After I do lateral raises I'm hurting, badly. After each set I have to put my hand up on something and stretch a bit. My shoulders BURN like a mother****er. I hate it but I love it at the same time...****.
    I've grown up some.

    Shoulders are actually my favorite body-part because mine respond better than other body-parts.
    Though, I'm the same way...I get that burn right in the shoulder joint. I did them tonight and it was pretty intense.
    I think it might be aggravated by the fact that I do strict form, heavy lateral raises. That usually does it.
    I've just come to accept it as part of a shoulder workout.
    I usually do anywhere from 12 to 16 sets
    Tonight it was
    Reverse pec-deck 3 sets
    Seated dumbell presses 3 sets
    Lateral raises 3 sets
    Front raises 3 sets
    Dumbell shrugs 3 sets

    MASSIVE pump from doing John Meadows' style 'heavy partial' lat raises at high reps (35+). It takes an effort mentally in between sets to refocus knowing the pain is coming. Most sensory lift for me outside of legs.

    Re: Extreme burn working shoulders?

    Thanks all. Everything sounds normal, I literally have to hang my arms on something to get the burning to subside. Silver lining...I get lots of compliments on my shoulders!!!!

    This is interesting to me. I used to do shrugs on shoulder day and was advised to move them to back day. I have been doing the shrugs on back day for about a year now. I liked them better on shoulder day and I am considering moving them back to my shoulder routine.

    Tthanks for this thread!

    Re: Extreme burn working shoulders?

    There are times when I'm getting ready to do my next set of DB presses that I have to put the DB's back down b/c of the burning. I put them back down & have to shake my arms out.

    Re: Extreme burn working shoulders?

    Most sources say you can do them on either day.
    The function of the traps is to elevate the shoulders, though they are also part of the group of back muscles (Lower traps and rhomboids are more back related).
    They get hit when you do lateral raises, upright rows, shoulder press, etc.
    It's up to the individual.
    To me, it just feels like it's part of the shoulders...all part of elevating the shoulders.

    don't you burp it up?
    I would like to take more. Maybe it's the brand.

    Re: Extreme burn working shoulders?

    I love shoulders also and get the fastest burn with them. Burns/hurts(but not pain) like hell just a couple of sets in. Also have to stretch at the end of every set regardless of the exercise. Also give an extra 30 secs or a minutes rest. But I also love it

    this ^ . bro @ the gym told me he only buys fish oil from some health store. Reason being, he said, they are fresh. Some of that we buy from supp stores is rather old even though it might not have passed the expiration date. No fish burps if fresh fish oil pills and freezer.

    I always get an insane burn in my delts from any sort of lateral exercise. It's extremely satisfying.

    Interesting Vette. I have also experimented with traps on both shoulders and back day (based on advice) and also preferred doing traps on shoulder day. My traps responded far better when worked with shoulders.

    Thanks POB.
    I'll have to try that freezer trick.
    I have Twin Lab right now. I'll try a different brand.

    Always burns a lot when I do lateral raises.
    It always feel better when I stretch my arm above my head.

    Re: Extreme burn working shoulders?

    I love delt work too, full pumped delts look mean from any angle, they are muscle group that a guy look baddass fully dressed. I too am a 12 sets guy. I started the Lee Labrada 12 sets routine right after they invented the wheel and fire. I'll hit traps on occasion, always with delts.
