Can't use 90 degree chair on shoulder press...why

Hi, When doing seated DB shoulder presses I would usually use the seat with a bit on incline. I recently tried using a chair that was 90 degree straight up but I found that I couldn't bring my arms straight up. I could only get my arms all the way if I tilted them forwards towards the ground. Just w...

Pullups and lumbar flexion...

Hello,

I'd like to ask 2 simple questions.

Do pullups involve lumbar flexion?

Is it correct that a parallel squat does not involve flexion but a deep squat does?

I forgot to mention that i was not really concerned about the cooking part, just that i know there is some kind of reaction that happends with the protein in the flours during baking. But since no one mentions that i guess its the same thing as cooking.

Thanks for your replies :)

So it can be done that way. I will try them out.

I'm not worried about using more weight, i just need something i can use more effort and progress on but won't make me lose form too much on compared to straight arms.

Thanks for your replies. :green:
