    Looking solid in the pic buddy. wrt the presses IMO you should drop the weight of the first set down to say 50 and do 12 reps, then 55/60 x whatever for the second and really concentrate on working really hard in that last set.

    It will warm up the shoulders better and give the joints more time to become accustomed to the heavier set rather than just jumping in with the 65's. Plus you can move weights around a bit better with a progressive set to make sure you are progressing well...

    hope this helps

    I know Carl, I only have 25 lb and 65 lb dumbells. I could do shoulder press in my Rack with say 115 on a barbell for warm up then use dumbells . Maybe that would be better

    Id stick with the 65's then mate. If you were using a Barbell then really you need to be doing BTNP as otherwise it hits the Anterior delt too hard and with the benching it can get over worked really easy. the other thing is make sure your elbows are right back with the DB presses too, weights will feel heavier, but you wont be using the anterior delt as much like this either and it will stop it geting worked too much

    I try to keep my elbows back as far as i can but to be honest, When i get up in the reps i start coming forward with the elbows to finish.

    After my bench press, I still feel ok.

    Shame you havent got smaller db's it sounds like you could do with lowering the weight. Have you tried BHTN Pressing ???

    No I havent, I may try that Tuesday on my next work out but will have to see what weight I can do. I just dont want an injury from it so I stayed with the dumbells. However, Im really pleased to be pressing 65's over head. I hate to change it untill i get the 3 sets of 12.

    My next gym purchase is a set of Bowflex adjustable dumbell's. 1090's i believe go to 90lbs each.

    Today was a good work out for the most part. Every thing was better except shoulder press. I was doing good on it and for some reason i lost focus on the last set 7th rep and went to far down. My wife was spotting me and when she touched my elbow to help me get it straight, I lost it. I did do a set first with 25's to warm up and seemed to help me some.

    Squats
    135x12 ( upped the reps +2)
    185x10( same)
    205x10 (+1)

    Barbell row's
    135x12(+2)
    145x10
    155x10

    barbell press bhtn
    65's x 9
    65'sx10
    65'sx7 ( lost reps from going to low and lost balance . then lost focus)

    Bench Press
    135x11(+1)
    155x10
    185x10(+1)

    Barbell curl
    80x8(upped weight dropped reps on all sets)
    80x8
    80x8

    Dips
    5 sets of 10 body weight.

    Barbell calf raise
    165x16(+1)
    165x15
    165x15

    abs
    situps on ball
    25xbw
    20xbw with a 3 lb ankle weight in hands above head
    20xbw+3lb ankle weight

    Over all a good work out. I hate that i did not get all 10 on the last set of dumbell shoulder press but I will next time. Carl , I paid attention to them today and I am keeping my shoulders pulled back while Pressing. I will stay with this weight and the dumbells for now.
    todays grade, A-

    I do like that im progressing on these lifts at a faster pace then i ever have doing them one time a week each body part. I am taking an hour and a half to perform this work out because im doing it with my wife and some weight readjustments (flipping back and forth my wieght and hers) are taking place.

    My wife dont feel we are working her hard enough. SHe is not yet use to a full body routine and how you dont get over worked , its all about the whole week and not each day of exercise. SHe is going up on weight and dont even realize im doing it to her.

    WEEK 2 DAY 2
    Ok just finished my work out. I am happy with todays progression,again every thing improved some. Today I set up my power rack for shoulder press but have to find the right hight for it to get behind the neck. I did one set on bar at 115 and went back to dumbell's with great sucess.


    Squats
    135x12 same
    185x10 same
    205 x11 +1 ( forgot to go for more at 185 so I progressed on the last set today)

    barbell rows
    135x12
    145x11 +1 rep
    155x10

    behind the neck press
    115x12 barbell
    130x10 with dumbells (65's)
    130x11+1 rep

    bench press
    135x12 +1 rep
    155x10
    185x10


    barbell curls
    80x9+1rep
    80x9 +1 rep
    80x8

    BW dips
    5 sets of 10

    calf raise
    165x16
    165x16+1 rep
    165x16+1 rep


    No ab work today, we are going to start doing abs on our off days to a video for 15 minutes called slim in 6pack.
    Over all I had a great work out today and the shoulder press was strong today. One thing i noticed is today i made sure not to come to far down. I stopped when my arms were parallel to the floor. I think I have been going to far down on these making it to hard on my shoulders . I feel I could have went a 12th rep on the last set but chose to stop and go for one more next time.

    Today i give myself a A+

    you are progressing so fast - it's really impressive - does your wife spot you each workout? i know i have one or two more reps in each set.. i'd like my wife to do so but would be hard with the baby strapped to her chest

    i'm really way more motivated with an ab Dvd - think you'll like that

    she only spots me on the dumbell shoulder press. I tell her to stand behind me and dont touch me because it distracts me. If you see me letting it drop on my head then maybe help push it away but dont touch other wize.
    She is a nervous wreck when i lift the 65's over head.


    Other lifts i dont use a spot because i have the power rack. Now that we are working out in our own home, she is being loud and screaming at me to push it harder when she see's im stalling. lmao, she would not say anything at the gym.

    yeah that was me. lol , got to play mind games . Counting down instead of up really helps me. THe telling my self its light weight I got from Ronnie Coleman video, you have to trick yourself into not phsycing your self out . Just like when you are stalling on a lift and someone puts a finger tip under the bar, your mind thinks you have help so now its easy to push it up. KNowing that the finger is not doing **** for you.

    so today me and my wife done 15 minute abs dvd. Called slim and 6pack. Im sure going to feel my abs tomorrow, Very good routine and things I have never done before. Much less with no break between sets. It was a solid 15 minutes straight.

    Going to hit the weights early tomorrow morning, Hope the abs routine today dont effect my lifts from core soreness.

    65's x 11(+1 rep) These were great today as I am now not coming down to far

    Bench press
    135x12 +1
    155x11+1
    185x9 -1( just did not have the 10th one in me)

    barbell curls
    80x9
    80x9
    80x10+2 was supposed to just go to 9 but had more in me

    bw dips with 30 seconds rest between sets
    5 sets of 10 . The last set was very hard but i finished the last rep barely.

    barbell calf raise
    165x17+1
    165x17+1
    165x17+1

    I am happy i increased in some areas but wish i would have still got the 10th rep on my last set of bench press. Im more pleased that i was able to rep out all sets on shoulder press so Ill let the -1 rep slide on bench.
    I did not do abs today, we are doing the 15 min abs on the slim and 6 pack dvd. My abs are sore today, heck of an ab routine.
    Over all today is an A- work out
    Health and feeling good is my goals.

    the bench is fine mate, you did extra woork on the shoulder presses and extra work on the previous two sets of bench. Just holding the bench where you are now and working hearder on the shoulders presses and dips is still gonna work you plenty mate.

    excellent session. A+ for sure

    Thanks Carl, I'm seeing Lat's bulging out more then ever and only 2 weeks in to this routine. I'm seeing good things happen and the good thing is I'm on a cutting diet to boot.
    I have also been taking test charge since around the time I started this routine.
    It's all working together as I'm loosing weight, gaining strength all at the same time .

    I am down to 232 in the morning fasted from 240 in 3 weeks.
    Health and feeling good is my goals.
