  • Hit the 80lb dumbells shoulder press 3 sets of 10 reps a while back, was happy with that, never handled them for any overhead work before.

    • Did 44 set workout today(wife pissed me off just before) During the Cowboys game too! What dedication.

      I had a PR in cable crossover flyes @ 70 x 6

      • 270 raw squat, ass to ground. Felt pretty good, working towards that 300.

          How do you get them in set position? Do you have a spot?

          My method of falling into a 90 degree chair and swinging them in place is holding me back from heavier presses. Feels like it's just on the edge of unsafe but I think dumbell presses are a requisite movement to keep proportionate

            I used to have trouble, but now I think i could probably swing the 130's up into position if I wanted to. You just have to do the first rep like a man though since they're going to be lowered as fully as possible. I lift them to around the middle of my quads from the ground and sit on the chair, then...one by one...I'll slide the leg backwards (so that the knee comes closer to the ground, the weight leans forward, and the foot slides back) and then try to swing the whole leg up (whilst the dumbbell is still on the quad), curling the weight at the same time to hoist one up and just hold it at the bottom of the press...then do the same thing with the other. Probably hard to visualize...i'll try to find a video with someone else doing it.

              I think I see what you're saying. I just about ruptured my right calf that way. I wasn't quite getting the extensor into it like I think you are though. I'm gonna try your method next workout for shoulders/arms which is wed.

                I always have someone to lift one up for me, I have a bad back so I have to be damn careful, I can't swing back and forward with the weight, I just curl one up and my training partner hands me the other. Even if I had a good back I would still do it the way I do because as you say, so much energy can be wasted throwing them up there!

                      I'll try to take a video for you tonight demonstrating it. I think it works best for me so far. I don't really use the calf...before I used to bounce the calf to hoist it up but this way I don't feel any calves
