    Colostrum, Antler velvet

    Hi,

    does anyone have experience with
    - Colostrum
    - Deer Antler Velvet

    and its effects on hypertrophy, immune system or energy levels?

    Is it waste of money?

    IMO there is no need for a overhead pressing movement. Dips, when done correctly, train all 3 heads of the deltoid sufficiently. Many upper-body muscles work to stabilize the position.

    Totentanz,
    you mentioned chest dips in your routine before. I am still working on my technique.
    Are you paying any attention to keeping your shoulders back/chest out during the movement?
