Ups, acceleration uploading is too bad for the frontal head.  That cheat old movement...so good in the beggining but...

Those times where of incredible over use of the delts: a lot of olimpic liftings with the classical exercises with dbs.

Hello Sergio,

There is also an abbreviated routine which Grimek recommended, which included DB work, but I'm not sure where to find it right now.

I wonder when this "complement" routine you posted was used, in relation to their Olympic lifting--if it was same day, or on days they didn't do Olympic lifts, or what.

I don't know, Eric.  But I hace more Grimek's articles from H&S times that I have to post. Maybe in one of them are the photos of this routine or other with dbs, because I remember seeing it.
