    what kind of shoulder presses are you doing?

    i've been mixing it up with:

    -standing barbell shoulder presses
    -seated smith machine
    -seated dumbell

    i kinda just want to stick to one style, any suggestions? (any .gifs? :x: )

    so seated dumbell it is. :bigthumb:

    the smith machine really sucks for me because of the extremely limited range of motion. it almost feels like a fucked up version of an incline benchpress.

    i've been doing seated military presses for the 8 weeks i've been doing the routine.

    good luck w/ those shoulders once the smith machine gets through w/ them

    for real, the middle day routine is the toughest one of the 3.

    squats (it says to do light squats, but i probably work myself harder than i should)

    shoulder press (i do more reps than i have to since i've been experimenting with different styles)

    pullups (damn, these used to be easy)

    dips (i just throw them in since i dont feel im doing the proper shoulder press)

    goodmornings :mad:

    Mostly seated DB, tomorrow I'll do something different.

    I like standing the best. It takes a lot more core strength to support the weight overhead like that.

    In general whatever feels the hardest is usually the best for you. Madcow(one of the big proponents of Bill Starr's stuff on other forums) also reccomends doing them standing.

    try alternating push presses with regular overhead presses to overload your shoulders and get them used to heavier weight.
