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:
Low rep pulls (curls, rows, maybe pull-ups)
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.
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.

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.
I'd do them once a week on the DE bench day.
Why do they have to come up?
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
