Bodybuilding was my life for 20+ years and this was how every bodybuilder and magazine taught it. It's also probably why my shoulder health is spotty right now.

Glwanabe and I have had this conversation several times, and I don't mean to offend anyone who believes otherwise, but I simply do not believe any lifter should turn a compound movement into more of a isolation movement for the sake of "feel".

Good form is good form.

So many in this industry try to turn isolation movements into compound movements so they can use more iron, and compound movements into isolation movements by changing the lift so they can get a better "feel". I simply don't like this one bit.
