    Love/Hate

    Ok I have been back working out for 6 months now. The problem is that I'm getting strong on my Db work......so strong that its becoming a bitch to use Db's on pressing and Db incline. I'm sick of hoisting up 100lb Db's for seated shoulder presses and now that my chest is healed ( I hope) I have no idea how I am going to lift up 130lbs plus Db's for Incline Db presses.

    So geniuses what the hell can I do????

    start using barbells?


    If you are honestly that strong on DB presses is there any real need to keep increasing the weight? All I see is that it opens you up to more risk of injury.

    yeah, how about lowering the weight and doing more reps or like pfunk suggested, use bbells. Or maybe, just maybe you could use machines.

    Or have a spotter hand you the DBs. I've seen folks do it this way. It's just like having a rack for your BB.

    I use both, and would like to keep some Db work in my routine.....but I might just have to drop it for now, or until I get some obedient slaves to pick up my weights for me.

    I was planing to jump from sets of 6 reps to sets of 12 reps for now . A temporary solution but it might buy me another few months.

    if you can bench 8000 lbs raw you should have no problem hoisting up lil 130 lbs db's

    Two thoughts come to mind.

    #1: How do you hoist DB's? I stand at the end of the bench I'm going to be using with the DB's hanging in front of my knees. I then sit down on the bench so the DB's are resting on my knees. I then raise one leg at a time to hoist the DB's up to my shoulders.

    #2: DB flyes to pre-exhaust
    Barbell Bench for heavy work
    DB Bench as a finishing move (Your pecs will already be tired so you won't need/be able to use as much weight.)
    Rules? You mean we have RULES for that???
