Get strong in the Overhead Press and your shoulders will thank you.
I had just read over and over again by various bodybuilding sources that this exercise is very effective, and it seems like every shoulder training program I come across implements the upright row primarily. Also, I had been doing Jacob Wilson's 24 workout mass blitz, which calls for a high volume of this exercise. Also, what type of grip would you say is most effective for upright rows in terms of deltoid growth?
