    That's a lot of pecs, so if you are not sore then you're either superman, on serious gear, or must have taken 3 hours to complete the workout (in other words too long)

    After warm-up .... You should be tore up after completing your first excercise ... You must push that last set with your max training weight ... ( HAVE A SPOTTER ) and push 2 past the point of positive failure .... if that doesnt do it ..strip the bar to 1/2 its weight and continue forced reps til your done and push 2 past positive failure .... If you don't feel those you may have implants .... hehe


    this will really give you a great pump for the remainder of your workout ...

    good luck

    If you don't feel that, then it's because you've lost all nerve intervention from the pain associated with the previous set to failure!

    Yep MM's right...you gotta push past the comfort zone! Can you say INTENSE!

    first thing that came to my head

    poor blood flow to your pecs and your shoulders felt like that were gonna fall off?i would think you aren't isolating your pectorals and you are overcompansating your lifts w/ your front delts.just a thought

    That sounds like a lot of chest work there. I am a big fan (matter of fact, I think I could be the spokesman for) low volume, high intensity training. I like to get in, pump out some nice super intense sets, and get out to start healing. For small muscle groups (bis, tris, delts, calves, abs, lower back, forearms) I do 5 sets total, split between two exercises. For large muscles (pecs, lats, traps, quads, hams) I do about 7 sets split between two exercises.

    For example (Pecs):

    Bench Press
    Warm up
    225x12
    235x10
    245x8
    255x6 (optional power set)

    Smith Incline Presses
    215x10
    225x8
    235x6

    The last set or two of each exercise is done with forced reps from a spotter.

    You might want to try switching to something like that for a while and see if that works. I've been doing it for the past 2 or 3 months and have gotten great results.
