I'm doing a Westside routine (sort of) but I'm trying to also get my cleans/military up a bit. I remember reading that they think you overtrain your shoulders as is, and so usually they just do front raises to work your shoulders...but I really wanted to get my military press up and I'm not benching anywhere in the same ball park as Dave Tate. Do you guys think my shoulders would be alright after doing a DE Military (on the same day as DE Bench) and then either maxing or doing 6-8 reps on ME Bench day?

Right now my basic routine is like:

ME Bench
tris
front raises

Low rep pulls (curls, rows, maybe pull-ups)
Cleans
SLDL

DE Bench
DE Military
Tris

Squats
Cleans
Hamstrings
High rep rows/curls but not to failure

Any advice at all? Thanks

as long as you seperate delts and chest by about 3 days each you should be cool. and stop training tri's twice.
example:
chest/bi
back/abs
off
delts/tri
legs
off

add an extra off day if you like.

Just do militaries on DE Bench day. I wouldn't try to do anything beyond the smaller assistance execises on those days.

I'd do them once a week on the DE bench day.

Why do they have to come up?
