  • When it comes to shoulder press ......

    Shoulder Pressing:

    Hey fello DCrappers


    I can now get 16RP for 35kg DB Shoulder Press

    But the next DBS up are 40kg (11ib jump on each arm seems alot)

    To what target RP should I aim for before attempting 40kgs?

    (Roughly how long is 15 deep breathes, I have a bad tendency to take LONG DEEP breathes :p )

      thats the problem with using db's to big of a jump. barbell is easier to do because you can go in increments of 2.5 to 5lbs.

          rackitup, If you feel uncomfortable with going up to the next weight increase your reps with the weight you have now, til you are ready for the jump...

              on the side...

              just a quick note for those of you that hate converting KG to LBS.

              take the kg weight, double it, and add 10% of the doubled weight to get your lbs.

              so in this case the 35kg dumbell is:

              35 + 35 = 70 .... add 7(10% of 70) and you get 77lbs

              i used to hate not knowing how to convert because i did some powerlifting meets and they did all the poundages in kg's, hope this help if anyone is interested.

                    yupp, that's right...

                    And lbs to kg: 1lbs = 0,454kg (11lbs * 0,454 = 5kg)

                      What I like to do is keep my calculator on my desktop then multiply the kg's x 2.2 =

                      I think it's easier that way, but I hate math!!

                        For us limeys to press 3plates each side, we be lifting 140kg, or 308ibs

                        When U yanks press 3plates a side, u have to lift 315ibs i believe (45ib for bar and plate)

                        Bit of a strange system

                        (just like orthographic projection 1st and 3rd) :p :p

                          Hey Bro if you want to add a little wieght might I suggest that you get you some wrist weights. They come in 1 lb, 2lb and 4lb sets. The cost is $8.00 for the 1 and 2 pounders and $12.00 for the 4 pounders. You can find them at www.warehousefitness.com.
