Yes z00 some people actually move weigth and get bigger, like you want to. I am up to 85's on my DB press, only 3 weeks into doing them, start going heavy and you can get there too, and you will most likely see the shoulder development you want.

I can move heavier weights if I get help on the lift off. I don't have any spotters, last time I asked someone to spot me the dude was a dumbass and almost had the BB fall on me.

I'll focus more. You guys are getting me very motivated.

Whats your workout split?

3 days on rest day 3 days on?
4 days straight? 5? 6? 7?

pretty solid looking from the picture. I'm stuck at 160 give or take a pound or two.

If you can't get the dumbbells up yourself, you shouldn't be attempting the weight. Like that!!!!!!

Flat I usually do 110/125/130. I will go to 140 if I am really feeling it. I used to do 150's but haven't touched them in probably a year or two

Incline I obviously do less, usually start around 80 then work up to 110 or 125 depending on the day.

I used to be pretty strong on barbell bench (405x4) but the first rep every time I went 315 or higher would always feel like a knife was inserted into my shoulder. I eventually had an X-ray/MRI done (forget, long ago) that showed an elasticated capsule (ended with limited shoulder range) so I really backed off barbells. I feel that the dumbells put my shoulders in a better position and it also recruits all the stabilizer muscles.

I do miss the super heavy bench though, people be mirin!

My gym is on the way home from work, and a solid 25 minutes from my house. As such, I only workout during the work week. I do 2 days on, 1 day off, 2 days on, 2 days off and repeat. I weighed in at 183 today. In the summers I also play beach volleyball 2 times during the week and 1-2x on the weekends.

I don't do BB bench either. DB bench works better for me. My shoulders hurt from BB bench. Keep up the good work.

This, I think I could press more but because of my stupid forearm getting the DB up with my left arm is a struggle.

I seriously love the rowing machine, it is a far better workout than a stupid treadmill or elliptical. The best cardio, though, is probably Fran/Cindy/Death by Burpees.
