Love Training Delts With Ava

Training tip from IFBB Pro Figure Champion Ava Cowan…

Delts- The love of training them, and that I certainly do!

I prefer to explore all angles, hand positions and planes of motion. My goal is to target every single fiber, front to back equally, creating beautifully developed symmetrical shoulders.

In this exercise, the dumbbell front raise on incline bench, targets the anterior delts.

Incline front raises, using a pronated hand position (palms facing the floor) may be alternated with a semi-supinated (palms facing each other) grip.

-Start this exercise by lying supine on an incline bench set to 45 degrees.Â
-With the elbows slightly bent, raise the dumbbells using your shoulders until your arms are parallel to the floor or slightly higher.Â
-Keep a slight bend in the elbow and raise the weight.Â
-Stay in control of the exercise with a tempo of a count of two up and four on the way down. -Lower the weight under control to a dead stop before repeating.

Sets: 2-4
Reps: 6-10
Rest: 90 seconds


Iron – The Best Supplement

My favorite supplement has always been Iron! Lifted, pushed, pulled, and curled. Typically in as much weight as I could handle. One of the reasons I have always liked Palm Springs Fitness Center as my gym… 150lb dumbbells. Always needed them for one arm back rows.

The Best Part…

The best part of doing these short videos for Palm Springs Fitness Center is meeting and chatting with these wonderful people who are on their fitness journey. Doing squats with Gabriella and her gym trainer Lisa…

About “good form” in doing exercises… “… the reason I have a job”. “We want to make sure that when you come in here that you are doing the exercises not only to better yourself but to make sure you are doing it properly…” – Dan Partridge


Lat Variations

Simple training video clips I have fun doing for Palm Springs Fitness Center. Thanks!

A variation of the Lat Pulldown with trainer Dan Partridge. Making your time better spent in the gym with muscle time under tension. Much better than time under tension in a lot of things we do!
