As per original post, the weights were the working weights for 3 x 5 sets. Weights are total weights (so dumbells are
Wednesday - shoulders...
- Dumbell shoulder press - 90lb
- Shrugs - 176lb
- Dips - 70lb assistance
- Wide grip lat pulldown - 132lb
- Tricep push (rope attachment) - 4th weight (unsure of actual weight)
My thoughts on the session...
Shoulder press could have been 10lbs heavier, but I wasn't sure as it's week #1. Next week, I might skip a weight as I still had some in the tank (form was good on the last rep).
Shrugs were let down by the physical grip on my left (non-hurty) side. But, when I changed grip to the wider grip, I was fine, so it wasn't an issue of power.
Dips were controlled more by the pain in my shoulder. But I could feel it working the front deltoid, so it was ok-ish.
Pulldown was light-ish and I might skip a weight next week - form was still very good on my last rep.
Tricep push down was good and just about right as I put the wrong weight on the last set and couldn't do more than 3.
Overall, the session rated an 8/10 and I'm looking forward to seeing if I can increase by 5kg per exercise next week.
Tomorrow night is rugby coaching, so a rest night from the gym. I'll be back on Friday though!
