    Hi Davey – I like that one but I have a question:
    For older guys (who lift regularly) what exercises would you recommend to deal with the onset of a slight case of “man-boobs” (hate the phrase but it’s descriptive)? Thanks for any guidance.


  3. Like the corkscrew. I don’t think you need to lift the weight quite that high- lifting to shoulder height will fully contract the delt. Some older lifters like myself have issues with over-the-head raises (post rotator cuff surgery).

  4. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the
    long run and it is time to be happy. I have read this publish
    and if I could I want to suggest you few attention-grabbing issues or advice.
    Perhaps you can write next articles relating to this article.
    I desire to read even more issues about it!

  5. Fastidious response in exchange with this matter with real arguments and explaining all concerning that.
