cool dude.
do you do the barbell presses standing or seated?
you should probably incorporate an excersise for your rear delts, you can superset it with the front raises.

i do the seated shoulder press. i think it's easier to concentrate on the shoulders that way.

i could do the lateral raises lying to train my rear delts. i'll do so next week. thanks my far away living personal trainer. ;)

cool. i do them standing often because it makes me feel like a olympic lifter of sorts. you are pretty strong in that excersise. just FYI it's usually called seated militarypress.
and you are welcome my far away personal german.

you go real heavy on the seated calf presses. Do you aim for full contraction or just kick the hell out of it?

Sweet stuff dude. I like that you keep the reps pretty low.
BTW, when is Vio coming here?

i'm sorry, she won't come. :/
it would be too expensive, although they would fly for free. the costs for a place to sleep, rebooking the flight and stuff like that.. kinda sucks. i think she would have liked it to fly over there and to get to know you personally.

FUCK! dude I feel so bad because I couldn't let them stay here. I just moved in and place is still chaos. That totally sucks. You guys have to come here together sometime soon. We can have one of those famous german threesomes or you and I could just work out while Vio cooks food for us :D :popcorn:
