    i've never done those on a flat bench, i prefer the bar

    i usually only do them inclined since the bar kills my shoulders with that range of motion

    Impressive. I remember watching some guy do 50 lb DB shoulder presses and thinking to myself that I'd never get that far. And here I am doing 65 lb presses. :cool:

    <--- still a lightweight but whatever

    what are the reasons for doing flatbench db's compared to a bar? i guess it works the smaller stability muscles but other than that what does it do?

    I hit a plateau a month or so ago. Try what I call "shock therapy," or overtraining your muscles for one week or so. An example of one of my shock therapies.

    That's doing the same muscle group two days in a row. You want to "break" your muscles, but you don't want to injure them. ;)

    I have been on and off throughout college, i would work out for 2 months, then stop for 2, then go for 2 then stop for 2. I didn't really straighten my shit out until january when i found this F&N and it gave me motivation. I have been going strong since January 1st.
