    You'll need to dig deeper into form to answer that question for yourself. Go look up Eric Cressey. He has some good info on back positioning during lifts.

    A lateral raise and a shrug? Go for it.

    Given that you've been running push heavy routines for this long I'd strongly advise you get looked at by an expert physical therapist. You almost certainly...

    I'm sorry to hear about the adductor pain. That sucks man. The frog stretch, inner thigh foam rolling and Cossack squats (all in Limber 11) should really help with that. I'd spend extra time on those...
