Incline is the toughest, and hits your front delts and is considered the most effective one for pec development.

If you're not a fan of decline work consider dips.... just make sure to lean forward into them as you lower yourself (be careful how low you go depending on how sensitive your rotator cuffs are) and you'll hit the pecs that way too.
Yeah i am nursing a irritated rotator cuff as we speak. I can ussually do dips with a plate strapped to my waist. I tried doing dips for triceps last night. Couldnt even do my own body weight. Felt like a douche. BUt i guess it means i need to nurse it a lilttle more.

Have to agree with Arnold Press.

I can't seem to work my delts without destroying my shoulder so I stick to presses and front raises. I mix in a little reverse flye every once in a while.

Military Press has always been a favourite.... but I recently started doing front raises with a barbell (45lbs) and I've found that just KILLS me at the end of my shoulder workout. Make my front delts pop too.

Yeah the front raises can be tricky. You really got to watch how quickly the weight falls back down.
I sometimes mix it up using the cross over machine and doing the raises with the tricep ropes.

Hey 'cuda! If you're ever looking for a great book on "working out" quite a few women are swearing by this one nowadays.... from what I've seen it has some EXCELLENT advice in it.



"In The New Rules of Lifting for Women, authors Lou Schuler, Cassandra Forsythe, and Alwyn Cosgrove present a comprehensive strength, conditioning, and nutrition plan destined to revolutionize the way women work out. All the latest studies prove that strength training, not aerobics, provides the key to losing fat and building a fit, strong body.

This book refutes the misconception that women will “bulk up” if they lift heavy weights. Nonsense! It’s tough enough for men to pack on muscle, and they have much more of the hormone necessary to build muscle: natural testosterone. Muscles need to be strengthened to achieve a lean, healthy look. Properly conditioned muscles increase metabolism and promote weight loss—it’s that simple.

The program demands that women put down the “Barbie” weights, step away from the treadmill, and begin a strength and conditioning regime for the natural athlete in every woman.

The New Rules of Lifting for Women, now in paperback, will change the way women see fitness, nutrition, and their own bodies."

Military press is always good. Reverse flies are ok, but i prefer behind the neck barbell press, and side lateral raises.

Regular Seated Dumbbell Press. Although on my first set I usually do the Arnold Press with some 35's for high reps.

I was out yesterday and saw a couple of people jogging... full jogging gear, really into it. Then they suddenly stopped and and split a joint.

This made me think of the convo you guys had a couple pages ago

You slackin'! Lol.... I got up to 295 but I've got a mental block in me right now when it comes to that last 5 lbs... switched my workouts a bit and I'm doing higher reps (8-10) now for a bit rather than working the power (1-3 reps). I'd like to get 3 plates up by summer if I can.... we'll see. It's friggin HARD right now lol.

You tried drop-settin' at all? That can help sometimes....

Start with one that you can push about 8-10 times with good form. Make sure that you can control the weight too. Don't be afraid to drop down to lighter weights until you get the hang of it.

If you've never ever lifted you might start with some machines first so you don't have to worry about stabilizing the weight.

Havent done drop sets in a while. Maybe I should.
I moved up my weights recently for a bunch of workouts. I do 3 sets pullups before doing lat pulldowns now for upper back. The sitting rows I usually about pull 165 for 10-12reps and 3sets. T-bar row, etc.

And u do 295 @ 8-10 reps? ... or did i read that wrong. Or you counting that as 1rep max.

You can get dumbbells that are adjustible. One set of dumbells can be adjusted from 5lbs to 50lbs. Try them out. If you start with 5 or 10lbs. You will notice your strength going up really quckly at first.
