    wtf...I was at the gym on saturday and I saw a guy I used to work with. After attempting to make small talk with me, he said that he was training shoulders. Now, when I worked with him about 5 months ago he really wasn't into working out at all...he's a decently built guy...very short and stocky.

    anyways, he gets on the military press(free weight) and puts on 135...reps it out with the worst form in the world. Brings it down to his chest. Then 185 ...then 225 all with the same form. Then 245 and gets it 6 times. I'm really surprized that he didn't tear his rotator cuff out on those presses...but he was doing them pretty easily.


    his other exercises were shit form tho...and weak weight. But his power is pretty damn impressive.

    Where did you expect him to bring it down to?

    im 6'5 and have a 6'7 wingspan. i used to train shoulders a lot and that helped overall size. its sucks at first but the results are well worth it.

    6'6 and Jacked > 5'6 and Jacked
