lol. Hopefully soon I'll be back to where I was before that car accident. The local gym in my town has dumbbells that go up to 180.

For forearms I hold a 45 lbs plate in each hand and walk around the weight room until them literally fall out of my hand. I do this 3 x, once a week.

I try to go at least 2 minutes each time

Haha, you guys...

I currently do three weight days a week. Back/Biceps, Chest/Triceps, and Legs/Shoulders. with a day in between. I use all free weights (deadlifts for lower back and dumbbell squats for legs, for example) except for one of my tricep workouts where I use the cable machine. I usually mix in a day or two of cardio, and I have been getting into the (possibly bad) habit of doing pushups before I do my stretch out at the end. I have also been doing pushup holds for my core as well.

I just think I might be burning out my arms. Should I drop the pushups and concentrate on my chest workout exclusively? I will start doing forearm exercise as well.

Keep in mind this is not a usual occurence, it has only happened a few times in the last few months. I am just trying to identify the problem and rectify it.

EDIT: As a full breakdown:

Back
- rear row (barbell)
- bent over row (dumbbell)
- deadlift (barbell)

Biceps
- concentration curl (barbell)
- bicep curls (dumbbells)

Chest
- flat/incline/decline press (dumbbells, usually only flat and one other each week)
- flyes (dumbbells)

Triceps
- kickbacks (dumbbell)
- seated extension (two hands, dumbbell)
- pull downs (cable machine)

Shoulders
- front raise (dumbbells)
- side raise (dumbbells)
- seated shoulder press (dumbbells)
- seated leaning forward front raise (dumbbells)
- shrugs (dumbbells)

Legs
- squats (two hands, one dumbbell)
- calf raises (dumbbells)
- step ups (dumbbells)

Which one should I remove? I am least attached to the cable machine, if that one is an option to replace.

DIPS are a fantastic mass builder. The kickbacks and pull downs are less so, the french press is good.

Remember, workouts are fluid and change, so feel free to substitute dips in at any time. THe other thing is you will get some good Trapezius benefits from dips as well.
