    quick question about chris` post

    Regarding chris` post about low volume training ( an excellent one at that ), 5 sets per bodypart max..okay but I was just wondering should u decrease the sets to say.. 2 if that particular bodypart has already had a lot of indirect work eg. chest,shoulders,triceps workout. I`m beginning to realise this is a bad question but I`ve wrote it now anyway lol

    Right different question, when I do wide dips I get a very sharp pain in my clavicle and when I finish the set my sternum feels as if it`s going to shatter, lol any ideas what this might be?

    Not a bad question.

    Yes, if you've already indirectly hit the bodypart, there is no need for many more direct sets.

    Biceps are a good example... they get worked when you do back (the degree to which they are worked can vary, of course), so a few sets at the end of a back workout will do you fine.

    Dunno about the pain, but if it hurts to do dips, I'd stop doing dips. Any other pressing hurt?
    Squats work better than supplements.

    Yeah Paul, when I do flat bench I get real bad pain in the front delt-pec attatchment area . Ok with db press though! The pain feels the same as I get in my forearms when releasing weight, curling etc..lol I`m a wreck

    Hm.

    I'd have a doc take a look.

    And stick to the DB press.

    DB Presses are great, so stick to them lilke Paul said, as for the pains, i used to have pains in my forearms when curling with straight or curling bar, once I switched over to DB Curls and Cable Curls, the pain disappeared.. Cant tell anything bout the shoulder pain though, sorry.
