Yeah man, I quite a bit better now. I don't feel 100% but I would say 80% for sure.

I'm just so pumped to be out of bed and going to work tomorrow.

Thanks for the warm welcome back

Nice rack pulls and rows. Your shrugs have a lot of heel pop in them, which might or might not be on purpose. I try to keep from getting any leg drive in them.

One thing on the rack pulls too, actually - you really seem to yank that bar off the floor. Doesn't that bother your arms or shoulders? They seem to be in proper position (straight arms, shoulders reasonably back and down and over the bar) but...damn...I grip-and-rip but it's more of a smooth rip. I'd worry about losing my form if I pulled that hard that fast. :neu:

It looks worse than it is. Just like with the shrugs, I have a violent approach, but I'm not actually yanking on the bar at all. Meat told me the same thing, so when I went back to think about it, I'm not. It just looks that way. :shrug: Who knows... lol

Yeah I put a ton a legs and hips into my shrugs on purpose.

Hey thanks for the comments man, once I figure out how to subscribe, I'll get you back. I'm a youtube newb.

Smith High Incline Press.

It is a shoulder press in the smith, with the bench at a high incline rather than perpendicular. I press forward and up at the same time, like I'm trying to push myself down and away from the bar.

I don't really know if I'm doing them right, as they are making my teres major sore as well as my delts.

EDIT: Thanks for reading Doc!

ha ha, oh man. I don't know if it would be worth it... LOL

And yeah the kid doing the cleans is a monster just getting into strongman type stuff. He has been BB'ing for awhile, so his form lacks.

That girl is his girl and she is a total smoke show.

He only out-weighs me by 15lbs, so if I look anything like him I'm doing something right.

So no flat BB bench at the moment?

What are you thinking about changing to?

How about board presses/pin presses to hit the top of the ROM?
Or 1 1/2 rep presses to hit the bottom half?
Push-ups, weighted, variants?
Plyo, speed reps, etc? Throws?
Or high-volume? GVT? 5x10 or 5x20?

I Will probably move to BB flat, but have to swallow my ego for a few and find my groove. I don't want to mess up my shoulder again

I am pretty certain i'm going to switch deadskulls with dips.

every thing else is still up in the air

Nice 225 bench!

I noticed 2 things, but I don't know how significant they are. First, there is a fair amount of inconsistency in the bar path. Second, there is a little bit of foot movement, and even a little shift of your hips after you unrack the bar, and I wonder it that might make for a little loss of tightness.
