A new study published in The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that a simple but effective way to build strength in the shoulders is by doing a barbell exercise.
The study, which is published in the latest issue of The Journal, is the latest in a string of research studies that have demonstrated that the strength gains that occur in the upper back and shoulder during an exercise like the barbell can be sustained in the body.
The researchers conducted a randomised controlled trial involving nearly 300 individuals who had been asked to perform one of three different exercises: the bench press, the dumbbell overhead press or the bar barbell press.
Participants performed the bench or the dumb and performed an exercise consisting of two sets of eight repetitions each.
The results showed that the bar-press performed by those who did the bench exercise performed better than the other two exercises in terms of strength and muscular hypertrophy.
The authors of the study, led by Dr John Goulson of the University of Southampton, said:”There are several reasons why a bodyweight bench press is more effective than a bar-bell bench press.
Firstly, the bench presses are a good way of performing shoulder external rotation which is something that can be hard to achieve in many other forms of exercise.
Secondly, we found that the bench pressed is more efficient than barbell bench presses, as it requires fewer repetitions than the bar or dumbbell bench and thus is easier to complete.””
The strength gains from a bench press can be maintained in the shoulder over time, and the ability to sustain these gains over time can help ensure that the benefits of strength training are not lost over time.””
Finally, we saw that the upper body was more resilient to injury than the lower body and that this ability is a major contributor to a longer life expectancy in older people.
This suggests that it is important for all people to be able to perform both the bar and the dumb in their training and that the training should be carried out on an individual basis, rather than on a team level.”
This study shows that it can be feasible to incorporate strength training into daily activities, even though it is a relatively simple form of exercise.””
We hope that the findings of this study will help the health and fitness industry recognise that strength training is a powerful, effective and cost-effective way to develop strength in all parts of the body.
“The findings of the research suggest that a weight-bearing exercise, like the bench, can be effective in improving muscular strength and muscle hypertroopogenesis.
This is a particularly important finding for people who have a very narrow range of motion in their shoulders and can only move in a certain way.
Dr Goulons study found that there was a very high correlation between the strength of the shoulder and the strength and flexibility of the upper spine and that strength and stability were significantly related to the degree of stability.”
The stronger the lower back, the stronger the shoulder, the more stability there is in the lower spine, and vice versa,” said Dr Goulmans study co-author Professor Robert J. Daley.”
A person who has a very weak upper back is less likely to have an adequate upper back stability.””
In this study, the researchers found that performing an upper-body exercise in a bench, for example, is effective for increasing stability in the back and stabilising the shoulder.
The strength gains were maintained in both the upper and lower back in the bench test, which supports the theory that the stronger your lower back is, the better the strength gain will be in the hands and arms.””
Furthermore, the study shows a positive correlation between upper-back strength and upper-arm strength.
This means that the greater the stability and the lower the load placed on the upper-arms, the greater is the strength increase from an upper arm exercise.
“A simple and effective way of building strength in your shouldersIt is important to recognise that it might not be the most effective way for you to develop the strength that you need, but the research suggests that the more weight you are able to lift the better it will be.
The research also suggests that an exercise that is very simple and efficient, such as the bar bell overhead press, is probably the best way of improving strength in a range of muscles.
Dr JGoulson added:”If you have strong shoulders, then an overhead press is probably not the best exercise for you.
You might also find that the overhead press works the glutes and hamstrings better, and you might find that doing this exercise in the squat improves your range of movement.””
It is not clear why this is the case, but it may be because the bar itself is very unstable and it may also be that this exercise is performed on a regular basis and it builds up a greater amount of stability in a relatively short period of time.
“He added: “If you do a regular back squat, you might feel a little more muscular and have a better range of mobility in the
