Thursday:

Shoulders/Forearms

Military Press: 50x10 50x10 50x10 40x10
Seated Arnie Press: 50x8 50x6 40x8
Lateral Raise Dropsets (10 reps each weight): 20,15,12 20,15, 12 15,12, 10
Reverse Laterals: 25x10 20x10 (on incline) 25x10
Shrugs: 110x10 (x3)
Wrist Curl Over Bench: 15x12 (x2)
Static Barbell Hold: 24 to failure (x2)

Can anyone tell me why I'm doing military presses AND Arnie presses? They seem like just about the same exercise to me, the Arnie press being only a slight variation from the military press. When I do the Arnie presses, I'm fatigued from the military presses so I feel like they're kind of a waste of time. Or maybe the point is to fatigue the muscles, I dunno. I just think it's...weird. Like doing bench presses and then incline presses right afterward (like I was doing on my Monday routine).

Also, I've noticed that I seem to get more of a forearm workout on Tuesdays with deadlifts and rows than I do today when I'm actually working the forearms. On Tuesdays my forearms get rock hard and today, well, not so much.
