RATE MY WORKOUT: PUMPED UP CHEST & SHOULDER WORKOUT

It’s obvious that you like to lift heavy, and that’s good for muscle growth. But it’s not good to jump right into heavy lifting first thing in the workout. If strength is a priority, you need to be fresh to lift the heaviest possible loads, but you should try beginning your workout with a lighter exercise you can use just to get a pump. Swap the order of your dumbbell bench and bench press, so that by the time you get to the big barbell lift, you’ll already be sweating, somewhat pumped, and ready to load on the plates. If you use a conservative weight, you wont be too tired to bench heavy.

Dumbbell Bench Press: 4 sets x 10 reps.
Bench Press: 3 sets x 5,4,3 reps.
Cable Crossover: 3 sets x 12 reps (Perform a dropset on the last set, reducing the weight by 10–20% and pumping out reps until just short of failure).
Machine Shoulder Press: 3 sets x 10,8,6 reps.
Lateral Raise: 3 sets x 12 reps (Perform a dropset on the last set as described under cable crossover).
Bent-Over Lateral Raise: 3 sets x 12 reps.
