Increased my weight on my DB press to 80's. Love getting stronger.
nice work man
sitting, or incline?
i've never done those on a flat bench, i prefer the bar
i usually only do them inclined since the bar kills my shoulders with that range of motion
my incline db press is at 65's since it hurts my shoulders
i just bumped my flat bench to 225 last night, ill have to try the db's next time to see how that works
i gotta try the bench for my max this week or next
bb i mean
I know the feeling. How many reps? I can do about 5 with 85's.
with my shoulder probs i cant max out, don't want to risk another surgery for the sake of seeing how much i can do
i did 65x8 70x8 75x8 75x8 80x7
Impressive. I remember watching some guy do 50 lb DB shoulder presses and thinking to myself that I'd never get that far. And here I am doing 65 lb presses.
<--- still a lightweight but whatever
i miss working out stupid cold
my bench has hit a wall though
congrats, i can only get about 3 reps on the 80s on a good day
what are the reasons for doing flatbench db's compared to a bar? i guess it works the smaller stability muscles but other than that what does it do?
You answered your own question.
i just find it more comfortable doing the db rather than the bar
I hit a plateau a month or so ago. Try what I call "shock therapy," or overtraining your muscles for one week or so. An example of one of my shock therapies.
That's doing the same muscle group two days in a row. You want to "break" your muscles, but you don't want to injure them.
damn you you are beating me by 5 lbs. i did 75 x 8 last time so tomrow when i do chest i am going to go for the 80's hopefully!!
db's give me a greeater range of motion.. i cant go down all the way with the bar because it bothers my shoulder so i like to use db's also
how long yuo been lifting? just curious
I have been on and off throughout college, i would work out for 2 months, then stop for 2, then go for 2 then stop for 2. I didn't really straighten my shit out until january when i found this F&N and it gave me motivation. I have been going strong since January 1st.
