Sounds like your original workouts spiraled out of control a bit, Linden. It is a mistake a lot of people make. You're correct in toning it down and getting back to the compounds.

When you think about adding more to your workout to hit "smaller" areas, think about this: How many guys do you know who can bench 225, squat 300 and deadlift 400 that have small tri's, calves or traps? Answer is none, those compounds will build you up everywhere. Believe in that.

ive been toying around adding in close grip benches after military instead of doing crushers after bench. Close grip benches/Skullcrushers after military might feel better for you since triceps are already hit with bench.

Unfortunately not.

Although they we're my favorite exercise, I can't do them anymore because of excruciating in my right shoulder.
