Im new here and im on a Fat to Fit mission. I have my Diet worked out but i have a question as far as my workout goes.
Its a full body workout that i do 2 times a week.
Tri Push down
2 Sets each 8-12.. nothing fancy!
Question i have is The shoulder Press Seems to be working the same muscle as the bench press (Lat Deltoid?) Is that over working that muscle?
I can hit the other shoulder muscles with the lat raises (Standing and Bent over)
According to exrx.net i don't need to do both the bench press and the shoulder press that i should select another deltoid exercise because the Lat Deltoid gets a lot of work as a stabilizer for the Bench press.
Any ideas i'm lost on this one?? !!

Shoulder Press and Bench To much for shoulders?

Its not overworking it imo. Bench press does hit delts and tris but is primarily for the pectorals. Over head shoulder pressing will be more focused on the delts and hits them differently.
If I could make a suggestion to your program it would be to do at least 1 warm up set before your 2 working sets for each exercise.
