10 wall exercises for shoulders and biceps. Using a wall is an excellent way to isolate the muscles because you are eliminating excess hip and back movement.
To target the biceps and shoulders, or any other muscle group, you want to isolate the body as much as you humanly can. For this purpose a wall can be a great tool to allow you to hit the targeted area more thoroughly.
In the previous wall row video we talked about how "cheating" in the form actually ruins the connection to the targeted muscle:
When it comes to isolating a certain body part, you want to maximize the amount of quality work that is done to these muscle groups. When you are using too much momentum and hip drive, you are generating lots of force with your hips and legs which is taking away quality work from the targeted muscles.
Sometimes cheating is good but there is a big difference between an isolation exercise and a compound exercise. When the purpose is to isolate, you want to isolate the muscle 100% to the best to your ability.
If you are swinging and using your entire body to move the weight, you are doing a compound exercise and barely isolating the targeted area.
In isolation exercises or mobility drills the purpose is not to lift the most weight possible, but to train the muscle the best way possible. This usually means that you need to use high reps (10-20), light weight and focus heavily on mind-muscle connection.
