For my shoulders I do 3x10 military press and 3x10 seated DB press. I want to change so that I do 5x5 for military and 3x10 for seated DB press, my question is should I do the 5x5 first or the 3x10 first? My main goal for shoulders is hypertrophy.
If you're going to do 5x5 and 3x10, I say go 5x5 first (you want to get the heavy work in first, which is 5x5).
Since your goal is hypertrophy, you can stick with 2 of 3x10.
How do shoulders fit into the rest of your workout split?

By the way... you asked a "basics" question building off of an incorrect premise that you have asserted... that hypertrophy is a more of a function of set/rep scheme than calories. anyone who has been in the game for two years should know that caloric manipulation is the way to do it.

Never try to tell me what premises I am trying to assert, fool.

What is your entire split?
