      Solid. Great job. Your an absolute beast.

      Just curious how does your strength compare doing these seated. I know I'm stronger seated, but I have no idea how much. I've done standing for so long I have no clue. I recently went to seated for the last 8 weeks of my contest prep, but went to a seated machine press. Funny thing is now I have to pin weight on the machines. People don't understand how standing presses effect overall strength.

      I was also wondering do you incorporate push presses during different phases of training? I've noticed that they really add a whole new level to my shoulder training, but I have to be careful about how long and how often I use them.

        Appreciate it Doberman.

        My strength is much stronger on seated vs. standing. I typically finish with seated dumbbell after all of my shoulder exercises are finished and can push the 120lb for 25 to 30 reps for a set or two. A big secret I have (don't know if it works for anyone else), but I always start with 3 sets of pull ups before my shoulder routine begins, at that point I go right into my big overhead lift for the day (db standing, bb standing, or bb behind the neck). It primes my shoulders, gives me a good "rebound" pump - if that makes sense, and makes all the little aches and pains I might have go away.

        Back when I used to play college football I almost exclusively did Push Press for my overhead movement, but I haven't done them in nearly 7 years. I remember I couldn't do more than triples because the impact on the wrist was too severe for moderate to high reps.

            LOL.

            120's for 25-30 for a set a two...NO BIG DEAL.


            You're an animal man. That's awesome. Thanks for posting the vid, and for giving that tip about the pullups, will make a note of it for sure.

              It's good to see there are still a few of us left that do standing overhead work, very nice job!

              And here I thought I was strong at pressing...

                Thanks fellas...I'd definitely recommend putting these in your routines for a while. My delts have really taken a liking to these and the pumps are huge. Since it's a dumbbell standing exercise you wouldn't believe how much your posterior and medial heads get worked too (not to mention stabilizers).

                  The pullups make total sense. I actually used to do vertical pressing and vertical pulling together and noticed the same thing. I'm going to have to throw in a few sets of pullups like that.
