The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    if you just do barbell presses adding some dumbells to it might. i do shoulders after bench and I actually get really sore while in the midst of the work-out... but no matter how hard i go on my shoulders they don't get sore then ext day either same as you. which sucks cause mentally i equate soreness with shocking the body into doing something... anything

    My shoulders are the second worst for aching, the first being my lower back.

    try doing some lighter work and really focusing on contracting the shoulders rather than the tris.

    Don't get caught up in thinking you have to be sore to have made progress.

    Out of curiosity, what shoulder exercises are you doing?

    My shoulders don't get sore either, so I just go by the amount of weight I can press overhead.... as long as that number is going up, I'm fine.

    As to the workout plan you listed though ~ is that 14 set list all done on the same day?

    If so, why not cut the sets in half, and double the intensity?
    Does this pose make my camera look big?

    As is so often repeated these days, soreness is not necessarily an indicator of growth or even a good workout. Training for soreness should not be your goal. As the other fellow said, progress in loads used, assuming consistent form and cadence is the best indicator.
