As we've talked about before, it's commonplace to see chest workouts that look like:

Quote:
Bench Press 3 x 10
Dumbbell Bench Press 3 x 10
Incline bench Press 3 x 10
Decline Bench Press 3 x 10
Flyes 3 x 15
...while also using the following for shoulders:

Quote:
Hammer Strength Press 3 x 10
Side Laterals 3 x 10
Rear Laterals 3 x 10
Combine this with back workouts that are afterthoughts:

Quote:
Lat Pull Down 3 x 10
Hammer Strength Row 3 x 10
Straight Arm Pulldown 3 x 10
There has to be some form of balance. Barbell forms of overhead pressing are more rare for the average routine then we sometimes think.
