    Interesting.... what are these permits exactly? You go to school for a few years beforehand to get them or something? Or is simpler than that?

    No a permit hand is a person who has a trade ticket or is a registered apprentice who does not belong to the union hall but still recieved a dispatch to work for a company under our contract. Usually hired when all members are working already and the hall cannot fill a call.
    Being weak is a choice. So is being strong.

    I don't do deadlifts because the Hodge Twins don't like them. Is that bad?

    ^^ interesting I never really realized it was a good place to wait.


    Happy Monday all, may the force be with you this week! I spent a good amount of time on the weekend basking in the glow of hockey being back and then I had a good workout last night. Since I bumped up my calories I think its helping my bench press get unstuck as a side effect. Maybe it's just coincidence but either way l'll take it.

    When I was your age I did the 120's. (SRS)

    But congrats. It's a good day when I can toss around the 80's for 5-6 reps.

    Shoulder day tomorrow. Thanks for the humiliation....I mean inspiration.

    Shoulder day tomorrow. Thanks for the humiliation....I mean inspiration.
    Well I can do the 100's for 10-12 reps without a spot, but that extra 10 lbs seems to take it's toll on me haha. I find kicking them up is the hardest part.

    Yep. And putting them down at the end is no easy task either.

    I remember the first day I ever did seated DB press with the 120's. I was happy as hell.....until the owner of the gym came over and gave me **** for dropping the dumbbells at the end of my set.

    Hahah he put you in your place!!

    It's hard enough to find a gym around here with 120's, or else I'd be lifting those too lol. Not so much for shoulder press, but deffinitely incline. My goal is to someday beat my 140's on incline for 5. Try the 150's maybe?? lol

    most people suck at shoulder press I have noticed. I always see threads in the misc "guys I shoulder pressed 60lbs for 5 reps"

    and in the gym everyone grabs the heaviest dumbbells and can barely get the weight up and does quarter reps. After that, they don't put them down on their knee, they drop them from their ****ing shoulders.

    I am totally doing a program that is outside my comfort zone that is for sure, but I am liking it. My focus on shoulders though are rear and mid delt as front is very dominant compared. Some of todays stuff included 4 exercises that were 4 sets of 25....400 reps....fak

    Hey guys, what's up? Working backshift tonight and tomorrow night. Having 2 separate birthday parties for my little girl this weekend lol, families are so big we have to split it up. Hoping to get in some decent lifting on my days off though, working days 12 hr shifts is pretty much a write off, lucky to get my meals prepped let alone train.
    L.E.O.

    Honestly I think anything over 80 for shoulder press (with proper form), is pretty impressive.

    Also, I can see how people would call bull**** on me doing 110's (not that I think you are B-Neva), but I do pride myself in using proper form with all my lifts, lol.

    I touch the dumbbells to my shoulders at the bottom of the rep and I touch the DB's together at the top or I don't count it as a rep.

    Yes; old sk00l.

    And yes; most people I see in the gym use 50% or less of this R.O.M.
