problem with 5x5

The problem with my 5x5 is that after the chest press, I cant press as much shoulder press as I used to when I had shoulders and legs on a separate day.

How do we account for that.

This is my routnine
Dayone pull:
Deadlifts
close grip underhand chins
Dumbbell rows

Day two:
flat dumbbell bench press
dips
standing military press

day3 legs:
back squats
barbell siff legged deadlifts
crunches

    This will happen. Just do the most you CAN do for 5 sets of 5. Aim to add weight each week.

    Colchester:

    If shoulders are a priority for you, then do shoulder presses first and then bench presses.

    Id put them as the 2nd movement at the most, not 3rd. Try them 1st if you are really concerned with them, if you care alot about chest/bench then do them 2nd.
