    Hi Ladies,

    I’m having a hard time doing shoulder presses with 30lb dumbells for any more than 4 reps. Is there anything you can suggest? I’ve been doing the 4 reps then finishing out the set with 25’s, I’d use 27.5’s but my gym doesnt have them.
    I’m grateful for any suggestions.

    Thank you

    Hey there- if you can’t get the required number of reps for the workout with 30lb dumbbells, that means that particular weight is too heavy for you to do the workout with. Drop down to the 25lb dumbbells so that you can complete the required number of reps for the workout, or keep doing the workout as you have been doing by starting off w/ 30lbs then dropping to 25lbs when you can’t do anymore w/ the 30s.
