Shoulders, traps and forearms
Seated barbell press @ 45lb - 12, 11, 8
Seated Arnold press @ 17.5s - 10, 12, 9
Dumbbell lateral raises @ 15s - 15, 11, 10
Shoulder press (machine) @ 60lb/50lb/40lb - 5 minute burn
I gradually lightened the weight because I felt like I was hitting too few reps and having to rest too long. The lightest weight allowed me to really go for a burn.
High pull @ 65lb - 12, 10, 9
I tried one upright row with an empty bar, but I felt a slight twinge so opted for high pulls instead.
Barbell shrug @ 65lb - 5 minute burn
Barbell wrist curls @ 45lb - 12, 9, 8
Static barbell hold @ 65lb - 5 minute burn
Veins were popping out of both arms during these!
