Join our Facebook Group. Dumbbell Shoulder Scarecrow Duration: 0:44. Adam Pow 18,923 views. Scarecrow Shoulder Exercise – Scare Delts & Traps Into Growth! | Tiger Fitness This exercise is meant to place the tension on your mid delts, so don’t over-engage your traps by lifting too heavy.

Keep the weight light, so that you can do higher rep ranges. Keep the tension constant by immediately going into your next rep once you reach the bottom of your movement. Also, once you start to fatigue, don’t rotate your wrist. How-To: With a D-handle in one hand, stand in a staggered shoulder-width stance with your back to a low cable pulley. Place your nonworking hand on your hip for balance.

With your chest elevated, back flat and knees slightly bent, powerfully raise the cable up and out in front of you until your upper arm is about parallel with your working shoulder. If your delts and traps are lagging, it’s probably due to poor recruitment of those muscles during the lifts in your current program. You can throw direct work at those muscles all day, but just adding exercises =/= performing them in a manner that will yield growth. Scarecrow workouts reduce or prevent this kind of damage by strengthening the rotator cuff muscles along with the posterior and lateral deltoid muscles, increasing shoulder stability.

They also.

Therefore, in addition to exercises like Dumbbell Laterals, designed specifically for the side deltoids, I have included Behindthe-Neck Presses for the front and side delts, Bent-Over Laterals for the rear delts, and Shrugs for the traps.

The key to this special shrug is not to elevate the weights with your traps alone, but with maximal ribcage expansion.

  • So why not just do a high pull? it looks pretty much the same except you are further out so is this really any different or better?

  • not sure how to ask this one but I wanna buy those grips because they look a lot easier to use then the long straps. do they work just as good? or do you use a little more forearm strength with them vs long straps?

  • The idea is nice it seems to be a total stimulator, but how can you justify the EXTREME IMPINGEMENT of the Shoulder Joint specifically the Glenoid Labrum, where moves like Delt Raises when using an Elbows Up to the Sky approach does the exact same pinching as this Scarecrow movement, why demolish Shoulder Joints/rotator cuff in the name of temporary gains?

  • Pure gobbeldygook. There is nothing to be gained by doing dumb things like this. The lateral delts do one thing….they raise the arms out from the sides…no reason to do these.

    Not a mass builder but a volume builder?

    More gobbeldygook.

  • Everybody on YouTube is always trying to improve on tried and true old school exercises. And all they do most of the time is tell people to do some really stupid that will get them hurt.

  • Ol’ boy needs to add some calf raises to his shoulder workout instead, then he’d have noticeable calf development, and less shoulder trauma.

  • Super helpful, I really had a problem with the traps always taking over when I try do shoulder exercises. Really annoying, thanks Jeff!

  • He’s finally realizing he doesn’t know shit about what life is about and that he needs to shave the head ( being the hyper targeted area) otherwise you are on point about your experience and exercises. Thanks.

  • “It’s not a mass builder. It’s a volume adder.”
    I don’t understand what that is supposed to mean when volume is the main driver of hypertrophy aka accumulation of mass?

  • This will surely damage the rotator cuffs with time! It’s bad to do these with the rotator cuffs turned internally, it is safest to just bend the knees a bit and lean forward. Keeping in mind to keep the thumbs above the level of the pinkie when raising. Jeff Cavalere Taught me that 😉

  • There’s something about trap exercises that contorts the face. I don’t get it. It happens to Jeff and it happens to me too. I make faces that are nearly uncontrollable.

  • I have bitch wrists.

    Shooting sharp pain in the center of both wrists but only at a certain bent degree with a certain amount of force on them.

    Kettlebells hit that bend degree and level of force perfectly. Anyway to prevent this?

    It especially sucks because all I have is a pile of kettlebells to workout with… and my bike.

  • Damn your kid is observant as hell.looking all around the room while you were talking. your kid is the shit overalls and all. Good job bro love your videos.

  • Wouldn’t the second kettlebell balance the weight more and lessen the load on your core for stabilization thus reducing core activation?

  • I’m a Strength Coach & Personal Trainer and I love your content man.
    I’m going to include does exercises into my arsenal for bodybuilding and gonna call them: Ex#1 The Standing Humiston Raise, Ex#2 The 45 Degree Bench Humiston Raise & Ex#3 The Lying Chest Supported Rotating Humiston Raise.
    Keep up the great work.

  • Sir I watch your videos regularly and I have learnt a hell lot from your tips and methods.
    A big Thank You for sharing this invaluable stuff

  • Did this workout yesterday & all I can say is wow my side delts are so sore today just using low weight with good formanother cracking video from “ The Man “

  • It seems logical when he says it, but its actually hard to do it with appropriate form. I literally grabbed two water bottles and tried to imitate the same exact move, still felt contraction in the traps…:(

  • Amazing content Coach, your programs have been very helpful thru this quarantine. Learning to do more with the Kettlebell than I ever did with a whole gym. ��

  • I love the tips you offer! But to get off the subject for a second: what is that multi position bench called? I need a descent one for working out at home.

  • I’ve been following Jeff since 2018 when I changed my life and started working out smarter and cleaning up my diet. Just today, 3 years later, I’m looking at my delt and it looks close to Jeff’s in terms of definition. It really makes me proud and thankful for all this great content that I have been implementing consistently. Thanks Jeff!!

  • lateral raises makes my joint hurt.
    i can move my shoulder and hear cracking sounds (like cracking knuckles or neck sounds) and my left shoulder has louder sound than the right

  • A great way to really activate your shoulder is to lead side delt exercises with your elbow instead of your hand. Jeff, you talk about poor mind to muscle connection thinking of your hands and hooks, and initiating the movement with your elbow will seriously allow you to feel the side delt more

  • hey Jeff,so my left trap is much wider and thicker than my right one. Definitely notice it more after military presses or bench press. Any ideas?

  • Great way too is too add resistance bands along with a very light dumbell and do it slow as fuck. I put mad gains on after a lifetime of stagnant delt development. They are cheap as fuck to buy on amazon too. Well worth it.

  • Another great video! Thanks for sharing man! This is great for those with limited times and can be easily done at home… love the channel by the way.

  • Amazing super informative videos Jeff.. totally love the fact that you back every thing you talk about with anatomy lessons..I’ve actually learned a lot from your videos.. thanks..

  • That freaking kid is cute as a button and reminds me of me in the morning after a hangover when everything looks news and you’re confused as to what’s going on…
    Edit: Stay kid! And that applies to the old as well as younglings.
