After you are all done, just grab the 30kg DBs and see if you can get a 1 max rep out of them. If you can, then it won't be long before you can do them! If not, then you have some work to do ahead of you. No big whop, cuz you will get there. Still, to know that you can at least do 1 rep, the prospect of doing 8 or 9 are just around the corner (and that would do wonders for your mental esteem - and where the mind goes, the body follows).
Great advice here. 1RMs are great motivators - especially if you don't think you can nail something but surprise yourself. Usually when this happens, you'll get pumped enough to bang out a few more reps or, at the very least, know that you'll be able to hit your goals sooner than you thought.
And way to kill this last work-out - your numbers are consistently going up! Plus your enthusiasm and progress on shoulder day is inspiring, mate. Keep it up.
