So I need some advice from some of you pro's on possible overtraining. I have been doing the following routines I made up, but by the last set I am just flat wore out, and I am wondering if I am doing too much at once. This is just one of my giant sets I do.
Shoulders and Chest:
Upright Row with EZ bar 5x5 w/80lbs
then immediatly move to:
1 set of 15 of the following:
Lying Dumbell Shoulder Press with 50 lb dumbells
Standing Side Bent Arm/Shoulder Raises with 25 lb dumbells
Standing Front Straight Arm Raises with 20 lb dumbells
Sitting Overhead Shoulder Press (kinda like military) with 45lb dumbells
Smith machine Shrugs @120 lbs, but only 10 times
The only break inbetween any of these is just walking over to it. I have it all set up ready to go, so when I am doing this, I am fuggin doin' it!!
After all that I will take a 1 min. break then move onto this:
Flat Bench with 180 lbs.
then immediatly to this superset of 15 reps
Lying Chest Fly's with 50 lb dumbells
Decline Bench with 140 lbs
15 push ups with hands back at side of ribs
1 min. break
Then do it all again 2 more times, and just add in the other 2 sets of Flat Bench and Upright Rows to complete my 5x5's.
I am trying to add some size to my chest/shoulders/neck area. I thought if I used a heavy 5x5 at first to break the muscle down, then do some immediate high reps to pump blood, I could do it. But like I said, by the 3rd set, I can't get all 15 reps in everything.
Is this OK, or should I be doing more/less/different to add some size up top?
