Short entry today, mind feels dead and can’t think. I was looking forward to todays shoulder workout, it’s not overly different to what I’ve been doing but it was different enough to make me feel like I was starting something new.
Here’s what I did today:
|Seated Dumbbell Press||6,6||20kg|
|Seated Dumbbell Press||6,6||17.5kg|
|Front Dumbbell Raise||10,10,10,10||7.5kg|
|Dumbbell Side Raise||10,10||10kg|
|Dumbbell Side Raise||10,10||7.5kg|
I’ve done push presses in the past and didn’t feel that they were that great, but I’ve decided to give them a good go this time round, so we’ll see how they go. Started with about 75% of my max this week and they all felt good, having that little bit of help up from the push off makes them seem lighter than they are, which I suppose is the point, it will be interesting to see how I progress on them.
Added in some seated dumbbell presses, which again I haven’t done for a long time but it felt good doing them again, went a little heavier than I should have done as they felt a little too heavy for the first time doing them in ages, but even so I still managed all the reps I set.
Decided to add in some front raises with the side raises and miss out the rear raises, fronts I haven’t done for a few years so started with a weight I thought would be easy, and although it felt light to start with by the last set my front delts were smoked lol, so a good weight to start with!
By the time it came to the side raises I thought best to go with a light to medium weight and glad I did as my shoulders felt smoked even on the first set lol.
Was going to do dumbbell shrugs but thought I go heavy and go for barbell shrugs instead, had to chalk my hands as my grip just wasn’t happy for some reason tonight.
Next weeks workout I think I’ll leave all the accessory movements the same weights but increase the push presses by 2.5kg and see how they feel.
Until next time…
