    Todays shoulder workout


    I wanted to see if I could still lift shoulders without much pain, I haven't really trained them much at all since my shoulders started giving me problems about three weeks ago. I was suprised at how heavy I could go without pain, of course the biceps tendon doesn't really come into play with shoulder presses.

    Shoulder presses (DB):
    115'sx10
    135'sx10
    155'sx10
    175'sx10

    Side laterals (did hurt a little, done with cables):
    80x10x3sets

    No front raises because of the bicep tendonitis, doc's orders

    Triceps
    DB floor presses w/purple band (hands facing eachother, hurt a little bit)
    115'sx10x3set

    DB rollbacks
    80'sx10x3sets

    I had to quit after this because I had to run to organic chem lab. I still feel like it was a decent workout even though it was short. I also feel like I should have gone heavier on my shoulder presses but I didn't have spotters that felt like they could hand me any heavier db's.

    We have an adjustable set of dumbells, the bar weighs 15lbs and you just slap plates on it. Once it gets it the 175-200lb range you have to pick it up by the plates because there is no bar left to grab, lol. My college gym is pretty ghetto and they refuse to get more equipment because most everyone else is weak. They even have some new bars that they won't put out until I graduate , I have kinda bent up all the others

    I don't know, I have a lot of cousins graduating from HS in the next couple of years and they all have the Winters' family strength. I hope that at least one of them comes to my college, just to piss of the guy who runs the gym, lol.
