    No I rather enjoy it. I'm up to the 80's for 10 on my last set, which is decent for me because I used to not do much direct shoulder work at all.

    I hate doing any kid of push with a dumbell. I can never seem to keep them balanced.

    I hit 70'sx10 on the last set last week. I was happy.

    The worst part for me regarding any kind of seated/flat dumbell work is the initial setup. It kills my elbows trying to get them into starting position.

    I used to do them in a chair, with a low back..I could get the 55's some days, and sometimes it was tough. Then a couple weeks ago I used an adjustable bench and put the back all the way up and I put up the 65's..I was like wtf?

    I guess having more support for my back helped.

    You look straight ahead when you squat? :nono:

    Oh and I love DB Shoulder Presses, I can't stand the movement with a barbell though. :dunno:

    :noes:I just re-read that proper squat/dl form thread that used to be a sticky and realized it said look up/straight... I've always found it easier to look up though? Or does that "straight" part just mean don't look right/left?

    does it matter if you use back support or not for db shoulder press?

    Does one way work out the shoulder more than the other?
