i appreciate the good word, niggles!
thank you

my chest and shoulder strength and developement have always lagged a little behind my back and lower body. I'm looking for techniques to further enhance gains on lifts like shoulder press and bench press. I've done some negatives in the past, and found that it really helps with pull ups.. Are negatives one of the best ways to gain strength in all compound exercises? Or is there another simple strength method anyone would recommend for shoulders and chest?
