Hey guys, just wanted to get some advice on my chest and shoulder workouts, feeling like I may not be doing enough. I tend to do a lot more volume for back and I feel fuller after my workouts and more sore the next day. I change up my workouts a lot but they follow the same format (2-3 heavy presses then machines, flies, laterals, etc). I’m usually pretty dead at the end of these workouts though.
25 y/o, 5’9, 200 lbs, I don’t really max out but here are estimates
Max Bench: 345
Military Press: 205
I was going to write out my workouts with weight and everything but that would be way too long and they vary.
I usually do 21-25 sets for chest with about 10 heavy benches (6 flat, 4 incline), and some variation of hammer strength, pec deck and cables, throwing in decline, pullovers or dips sometimes.
As for my shoulders, THEY DON’T GROW OR GET STRONGER.
Usual workout is 8 heavy press sets (military/DB or DB/machine), 6-8 sets of laterals (DBs and machine), then 3 each of front and rear delts followed with 6-8 sets of shrugs, sometimes with upright rows.
Sorry for the long post, if anything, I’d just like some advice to get my shoulders a little bigger.
Also, anyone have any opinions on whether total weight moved during a workout is important (moved 22,000 in 184 reps on chest vs 42,000 in 333 reps on back/deadlifts this week).
