Maybe others can chime in but I already heard behind the head pulls and pushes aren't ideal and can cause injury. I may be wrong but it's something to look into.

I am going to have to disagree Mike. I train with my old roommate who's a personal trainer and semi-pro bodybuilder and we always do behind the head and in front for military press.

Technically any kind of training can cause injury if done wrong. I tend to agree though and personally I baby my shoulders. The only real heavy lifting with my shoulders is done with shrugs. I don't do anything behind my head, I don't do incline bench or military press.

Any suggestions for grip on heavy dumbbell shrugs. I'm having a much harder time gripping the dumbbell at 90 lbs than the shrug.

By far my favorite station. Loving leg and shoulder days. Always leaving hardly able to walk (no gay intention). Shoulders burning. Now that I'm doing barbell shrugs I can literally do 90% of my work out right there. I love it.

Good to finally be back into the swing of things at the gym. Had a rough couple of months with personal issues, moving to a new house. Promotion at work meaning completely new hours. But it's all on a routine now and I'm back in the gym daily. Back to my maxing of 185 on the bench. Which ill take considering. Lost a considerable amount of weight I had out on during the winter. So upsetting how easily I burn it off. I guess it's a bit better than having a hell of a time getting it off. Hard gainer is a pain though.

Anyhow, look forward to some decent updates the rest of this year!!

That's depressing....

....but I see it all too often. I don't think I've seen anybody in my gym do a strict pull-up (..but they sure can spend all day doing bicep curls ). All of them perform some kind of kip to get up.

I followed your advice and became "rigid" throughout my body, hooked my legs, and visualized pulling the bar towards me. After each rep I would slowly go down, hang limp, retighten, and repeat.

I went 8, 6, 5... I could have done more than 8 the first time, but I noticed how quickly my "endurance" went away. The first rep on second set felt "heavy".
