Oh, I was speaking of the MP's and in generalities. You were posting lower two workout the same time as I posted that last...

You should be able to keep the same weight and grind out the extra sets. You don't want form to break down but if you rest enough you can prob do them. If you reduce the weight don't reduce it more than 5 pounds..I doubt it will be needed.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

no, i intend to get 165x6x6 however, i am becoming a lazy fart and wanting to reduce it to 135x6x6 which would probably be a very very silly (and lazy) thing to do. so...i will be sticking with 165, sir. thanks

ps: i really hate front squats...i looked over the other phases and it seems i have some front squat variation in each and every phase

i can promise you this, sir: by the end of this program, i will begin to fall in love with this damn exercise!

haha...j/k i am beginning to like it more and more already. once i find my groove im all set to go

Front squats take some getting used to shoulder wise. That's for sure. They can make you miserable at first

Beginning Thoughts:
Diet has been amazing and I am damn proud of myself!!!
Workout:
I did standing unilateral dumbbell shoulder presses....I've come to realize that I am beginning to suck at all pushing movements. On Upper 1 earlier this week I had problems on all pushing exercises. This workout was no different...Oh well, good news is that my pulling strength is improving! I did chin-ups with 5 lbs added to my body for 6 reps x 3 sets.

I followed this with some push-ups (which actually felt pretty decent) and some dumbbell rows. Then came some kneeling cable shoulder rotations and some side bridges...
Overall Impression:
Something's not right with my pushing muscles but I am sure it will improve in time.

Well you've been pushing the circa-maximal stuff on the pressing for quite a while. Someone coming into this just off a intermediate mass/strength type of thing centered around volume would see a huge boost from this...but in your case you can't expect everything to go up equally. Seeing a big improvement in pulling is a big deal so enjoy that. Being able to handle you bodyweight effectively plus some is a very good thing indeed.

Update:

I know some of y'all are concerned about my pressing strength off late..

Well, knowing my history with shoulder dislocations, I should've played smarter and avoided certain things.

Because of my shoulder problems, I am will now be avoiding all external rotation exercises. They aggrevate my problems and make my shoulder joints looser therefore taking a huge toll on my pushing numbers.

Needless to say, me taking these exercises out of the program and instead doing what I exercises I have done in the past which have Helped my shoulders, will now help me get back on track. However, because of this slight change, I may not lift heavy (military press-wise) for another 1-2 weeks or so.

Well, you live and learn, right? This program was designed for normal people with no previous injuries.

On another note, I am changing up my workout days....

Monday - Lower 1
Tuesday - Upper 1
Wednesday - Off / Cardio
Thursday - Lower 2
Friday - Upper 2
Saturday - Off / Cardio
Sunday - Off / Cardio

I hope everyone has had a good weekend so far. I will be back in the gym come monday, guys! Have a great sunday people...

so what kinda stuff hurts the shoulder and what doesn't?


my left one has kind of been not happy today...not sure if it's just getting used to getting back at lifting...or if something is f'd.
