Is a shoulder/overhead pressing movement necessary during the “push” day after all the chest pressing exercises?
I do a push/pull/legs 2x a week (de-load every 4 weeks).
Here’s my routine:
Bench Press 3x4-8
Low-incline Dumbbell Press 3x6-10
Low-to-high Cable Flyes 2x8-12
Overhead Press 3x6-10
Lateral Raises 2x8-12
PJR Pullovers 2x-8-12
Incline Bench Press 3x4-8
Flat Dumbbell Press 3x6-10
Low-incline Dumbbell Flyes 2x8-12
Dumbbell Shoulder Press 3x6-10
Cable Lateral Raises 2x8-12
One-arm Overhead Extensions 2x8-12
I’m thinking it may be better to eliminate overhead barbell and dumbbell shoulder pressing altogether in favor of 3 sets of lateral raises. What shoulder exercises would be optimal in this situation?
What kind of shoulder work have you incorporated into your workout when doing push/pull/legs? Just trying to get an idea of what’s worked for people here in the past.
