I've used HMB a few times in fairly decent dosages and never noticed anything from it. There are plenty of studies that have been done on it, but it's not overly cheap. Better off spending the money on beer and food haha!

After a good hard training session I quite often crave an ice cold beer. Nectar of the gods!

Post workout beers? You guys are nuts :p
Il steer clear of hmb then, the only supplement I actually find useful is creatine and even that could just be a placebo effect haha.

Right so I'm going to train my shoulders today! Thought it would be fun to try out circus dumbbell presses based on some inspiration from watching worlds strongest man! It sucks that I don't have access to any sort of strong man equipment, unless I bought myown I would have to get a ferry to Southampton/Portsmouth... Would have been a bit of fun picking up atlas stones and dragging sleds haha.
Anyway, I don't have circus dumbbells of course ahha so I'm just gonna load up my Olympic dumbbells with a fair bit of weight and see what I can press, figured it might help with my ordinary pressing strength.

Okay training was cool!

DB overhead press
10Kg x 10 reps
10Kg x 10 reps
15Kg x 10 reps
27.5Kg x 4 reps! Knew I could budge it :)

DB one arm push press (circus dumbbell press)
I loved these, might start with them on shoulder day to get the most out of them. For some reason my left arm was useless at these. Maybe starting with them will allow me to shift more weight.

27.5Kg x 5 reps each arm
30Kg x 5 reps right arm, x3 reps left arm
35Kg x 1 rep with right arm, x0 left arm :(
35Kg x 2 reps with right arm, x0 left arm.
Finished up with
25Kg x 10 reps each arm

Side raises, managed to get the form right on these for once, nice and slow too
5Kg x 12 reps
5Kg x 12 reps
10Kg x 10 reps
10Kg x 10 reps

Tricep kickbacks
7.5Kg x 12 reps
7.5Kg x 12 reps
10Kg x 10 reps
15Kg x 10 reps
Drop set to 5Kg x 20 reps

Finished up here, I filmed a couple of sets of the DB push presses but for some reason they're set to private and I can't change it :/ I screenshotted the vid for my new avatar ;)

Nice work on the circus press mate, I should get in on that. Sometimes I like to do single arm DB chest press on the stability ball - keeps it interesting.

Get that vid up man, I need to see how the beast trains! haha!

I've pretty much given up on the vid dude! But will probably film my dumbbell deadlifts on Saturday (can't train tomorrow :( ) so will upload that hopefully :)
Also in a few weeks I'm gonna train with my cousin at a gym about a half hours drive from me, expect some heavy barbell deadlifting and squats ;)

Hi mate,

Looks like your enjoying the home D-B workouts, i use to do the same myself for about a 3 1/2 year period, have't to admit, you can get a heck of a workout with just a simple bench and a set of adjustable D-B's.

Absolutely mate :) have to admit I miss my barbell sometimes but it's nice to try out all these new exercises! Could barely move my arms after the one armed push presses :D
Do you prefer machines dude? I notice a lot of machines in your journal

Those one arm presses are da bomb:)

Yes mate, i do like using certain machine exercises with some free weight movements salted in, machines allow me to work around a few bad injuries and they allow me to focus more on the inroading of the muscle and the intensity of effort being put forth into the movement as none of my focus is lost on balance and coordination. That being said, free weights are still very productive tools, i feel both have earned the place.

1 x arm dumbbell presses are probably my favourite shoulder exercise, they're great especially when you do the whole movement right from the floor (basically a 1 x arm clean and press). Love your new avi btw!

Cheers MF! I just love how powerful I feel with the one armed pressing it looks so awesome haha

Oh Christ man what on earth! That's the kind of weird shit you'd expect at my old gym..there should be an after pic with him flat on his face and a barbell in the back of his skull baha!

HAHAHAH WTF?!?!? In what way ever could a stability ball help with a squat? You need firm footing for that.

Good lifting Rossco!
