Ok, these aren’t a new exercise to me in the sense of “I just found about them”, but I was reading on another good website and thought, “Huh, I ought to try those. They might be good in my quest for bigger/stronger shoulders” So off to the spare bedroom I go to get a db. I just load up a light 32 pounds. I know it is a complicated lift, so I just want to try to work the mechanics of it. I did 5 reps my first set. Not really taxing in regard to weight, but I can tell that I’ll have to keep an eye on my body position.
I did another 5-6 sets of five. Taking long breaks between sets. Do a set. Sit at the computer and read and article. Do another set. My conclusion; these will definately find there way into wednesday’s workout. I’m going to replace my normal seated overhead db presses for 5x5 with side presses 5x5.
Please, let me know of your opinion of this lift if you’ve tried it before. I know that I can’t be the only one who has tried it.
