    Hi Guys,

    Just wondering the thinking behind doing drop sets on lateral Delts and triceps in the PPL. If I believe that my front Delts are less developed than my side Delts, would it be unreasonable to drop set on front Delts?

    I was also wondering why a row movement comes before the lat isolation on pull day? Similar to the above, would it be unreasonable to swap the two and start with lats (as I’d like a slight focus on width)?

    Thanks guys!

    Im sure they’ll eventually get into it. For what it’s worth we are actually underpaying.. gotta have some patience thousands of people here.

    Thanks guys I appreciate the responses and sorry for my impatience haha, bit of OCD with training right, hence when there’s something I’m unsure of it can be painful to wait.

    That being said, your answers were great. My one next thing is that my upper chest and front Delts are behind my mid-lower chest and side/rear Delts. This is because I had a mild but long-lasting (6-12months) shoulder injury which restricted flat and incline push movements, forcing me to just do decline presses. From a recovery/total volume standpoint, would it be silly to change the rep scheme on PPL (2nd and 3rd phases) to having the following:
    – 3 sets upper chest press (I do incline smith)
    – 2 sets cable flyes
    – 3 sets front Delt biasing shoulder press (with dropset)
    – 2 sets lat delt flye
    – 3 sets triceps (with dropset)

    Would also consider doing a dropset on upper chest instead of front Delt or triceps.

    Very keen to hear your thoughts, and I know it’s just minimal stuff but that extra 5-10% matters to me especially over the long-run. Thanks guys!
