I have just started HP MASS (as you can tell from the subject) and I've gotten a couple of questions/concerns.
Push Press ( 3 RM: 175, MTW: 150)
Incline BB Press (3 RM: 260, MTW: 230)
Decline BB Press ( 3 RM: 285, MTW: 240)
Activation is usually overhead medecine ball throws.
My real concern is this: After I have got to about the 4th or 5th set of my push presses, an area right around where rear delts starts aching, and then full on flame-on hurting. It affects the rest of my workout.
I noticed that if I do some of the ab-strap romboid pulldowns (thib pulldowns?) the pain dissipates for about 30 seconds, but then comes back in full swing.
It sounds like I'm doing something wrong.
After finishing my first exercise (the push press), if I go to the incline press and even get close to my MTW on the first set, (say, 225) as soon as I pick up the bar my arms start shaking and vibrating harder than my ex-girlfriends vibrator. Everything is fine if I do a ramp up to my MTW and then wave load from there. It's starting "cold" on the exercise that has me all messed up.
Did I read something wrong in the articles, or are we really supposed to start the "B" and "C" exercises with our MTW? We don't work up to them at all?
Any help would be appreciated, as I really want to nail this program down.
