This post is about making two points.
1. showing what I ment by training muscles that assist in the important movements I'm working now.
2. the importance of working antagonist muscle groups and how to save time doing it
nothing wrong with pumping it up!
Flyes and rear delt flyes are not movements that I want to perfect or think are awesomely cool, but they are good for assistance. As you see,I pair the antagonist muscle groups here to save time and I don't think they interfere with my performance, although I don't care much if I perform my best when doing higher rep work like this.
In this video I train forearm pumping. This is a complement to my finger training to build the surrounding muscles of the forearm and pump blood into the area. One thing I do for fingers is dead hang on a small edge, like in this video and I like to have the finger strength to do stuff like in this video: edge front levers
I trained antagonists here as well. Brachioradialis in the first set of cross body hammer curls and the flexors in the set of wrist curls.
I believe these lighter things have benefit for me to keep training the harder stuff without getting injured and to keep progressing witout weak links.
What do you think of the subject? Well needed or unnessecary energy wasted?
