whoops, wrong section or else I would have responded sooner, didn’t even notice it posted, sorry.
Im rowing 120lb dumbbells for 6 reps, not currently deadlifting (I know, I know), and can usually do around 5-8 pullups, used to do around 12 but I stopped training for a bit.
No shoulder issues, occasionally they’ll get sore, but thats the same for my knee’s, nothing serious that any doctor has seen when I bring it up. And I isolate my tri’s a good bit, I do cable pushdowns anywhere from 120-170lbs, depending on the tower, my gym just swapped over to a new building and changed everything. After those I can still manage to do 12 dips, though there isn’t a chain for strapping weight on. I train chest/tri’s every third then fourth day, and it used to be a little less often 5/6 days but a guy I saw a lot at the gym said I needed to do it more often for any gains.
I eat a pretty good bit, I’ve added about 10lbs in the last probably 6 weeks, added an inch to my arms and an inch and a half to my chest. But heres my chest/tri schedule, note: 4 sets each.
Bench 8-12 rep
Incline dumbbell bench 10-12rep
machine Fly 10-12rep
Tricep pushdown 12 rep (i use the small metal v bar)
I don’t really feel like I’m overtraining, because all my other lifts are adding a lot of weight, I’ve added about 35lbs to my machine fly in 3 weeks, about 40lbs to my bent over row, I’m even using 60lb dumbbells for the incline press after the bench, when I started with 45’s. Everything else has gone up too but that’s just a few examples.
On a side note a few months back when I trained alone at 2am after I got off work on my old job I worked my way up to using 95lb dumbbells at my heaviest for incline THEN flat bench. One day I hopped over to the barbell and felt that 135 was going to crush me because I couldn’t control it, now that I’m getting back into lifting more seriously with a partner I’m just having a hard time with this press.
Sorry about the wall of text, just trying to give everyone an accurate example of whats going on. Any other questions I’ll be glad to answer in a few hours when I get back on.
