My chest went up in everything. Up to 205 for incline, 245 for decline, 94lb dumbbell chest press all for sets. Not much, but I've been stuck at a plateau for the longest time

That's a lot of sugar... and effort being put into low fat FrankenFoods make it worse

Replace all the "low fat" with "full fat" and make up for the calorie gain by losing some of the sugar (ditch the pineapple and less oatmeal)

Then you will have the weight gain and healthy heart to boot

^ LOL! that is pretty crazy, id be a bit paranoid that the bar would slip out from my feet.

I'll try it out tho... i am looking for a few new exercises to work the back of my legs, i find when i dolying leg curls it puts a lot of bad pressure at the back of my knees....and all the seated leg curl machines are sooo fucking difficult...the ones @ my gym have like 50 different settings, and they all feel so un-natural

Leg machines always feel so bad for you.. Luckily there are a million different variations on squats and deadlifts, so you should never have to use them.

What can I do to get my military press to a plate? It seems like I'm stuck at the 40 lb/side .. and today I failed on that. It seems like its decreasing almost ... wtf?

I'm doing it standing. My shoulder workout is usually warmup with dumbbells 4 x 8 on a weight that's ~60% my max. I get a nice warm feeling in my shoulders and then I go for military press, start out at 20x6, 25x6, 35x6, and then I go 40x3 (can do more but don't wanna tire self out) and usually that's where I call it quits lately because I'm just so dead .. and I end it with 25lbs a side to failure (usually ~16 reps). I then do some seated military press, and go into my front raise > side raise > rear shoulder fly superset/Trap shrugs on the bar and machine (these last two i do in any order, depends on availability). What am I doing wrong? When I first started doing shoulders this workout was the shit .. now it seems like my muscles are getting so worn out by it. Could it be because I made the mistake of doing it right after a chest day? I'm gonna try doing shoulders first thing next week to see if that makes a difference.


... today was still a pretty good workout nonetheless, didn't let my failure get me down. Was lifting shit till the lights went out, got in the car and realized my eyes were red from the sweat dripping into them ... sweet, sweet pain.

... also I think I hit a new max for my dumbbell shrugs ... but I have no idea what the fuck the dumbbells weighed all I know is it the lights went out, and from the shape of them .. they looked pretty big and were definitely pretty heavy .. and they tore up my hands pretty good. I'm starting to love the gym more and more every day

You're pre-fatiguing your shoulders already by doing DB press then military. If you goal is purely to increase your military press, ditch the DB presses. IMO You don't need 3 warm up sets before going on to your working set (40 x 3) Ditch either the 20 or the 25.

I m fairly confident you can get a plate up for 3+ if you just did what i mentioned.

You're also doing way too much pressing movements, you dont need to do DB press, standing and seated military all at one go.

I find if i don't warm up it hurts in a bad way when I do it. I also do 3 sets of rotator cuff exercises, but they're quick and easy and preventative more than anything (i do them inbetween db press). I'll ditch the 20 and start at 25 ... is there anything else I can do to help myself out? My biggest issue is throwing that bar up, once it's up its easy.. just sometimes I lock up mid way and have no option but to give up (i try my hardest for a couple seconds, but if its not happening i'd rather ease off than injure myself)'

And I'll try to limit myself to just 2 pushing exercises .. I just don't feel that burn as intensely as I like if I don't do 3 exercises though, so I feel a bit confused as to what to do.
