I'm definitely doing dumbbell for this one. I COULD do barbell since my gym has a half seat, fuck it i'll end do both on separate days that way I can compare.

Let's make it a rule that your whole back has to actually be touching the seat, not like some of these goofs I see with ridiculously arched backs

Did the hangs today, and faillllled.
Only could do 45 seconds, did them immediately after shrugs which was a bad idea.

Did 9@55% body weight (95lbs). Also repeated the dead man hangs, did a little better at 1.2 minutes, but clearly still needs some work when comparing to some of your guy's numbers.

I did strict military press (feet together so no leg drive) because the seats my gym have are an adjustable bench which doesn't go straight and the preacher curl seat ==

20 @70lbs

I was going to bar about mouth level. That's way past parallel for me with long arms.

Berz out.

The further down you go, the more muscle you are exerting, and you are also engaging more of that muscle (hope I worded it in a way that everyone understands, haha). I personally like a little lower weight and go through the full range of motion, but it depends on what your goals are (this is the same for any exercise). If you want size, higher weight at parallel is fine.

Is it wrong that I am constantly looking forward to these weekly challenges haha? Get the next one up!!!!!!

Thats why I do 4 different shoulder pushing exercises a week split into 2 days (monday, friday).

day 1
Regular dumbell seated presses to bars thru the ears depth. Higher weight 6-8 rep range
Standing strict barbell military presses to bar to chin depth. Lower weight 8ish reps

day 2
Arnold dumbell seated presses with arms lowered fully and rotated to the front. Lower weight 8-10 rep range
Standing barbell military presses with a half push press on the last couple reps. Higher weight. 4-6 reps

lower weight and deeper higher reps seems to build more shoulders. higher weight builds strength, which inturn, allows me to lift more weight for the lower weight exercises.

Did it with both the 100lb barbell and 50lb dumbbells back to back, no spotter.

Barbell: 19.5 reps @ 200lbs (I failed 3/4 of the way on the up half of the rep)
Dumbbells: 23 reps @ 200lbs

Dumbbells was a more natural push for me, never done a free bar military press before. Felt weird.
