    On their own not particularly problematic, but if you already have RC/impingement issues and are doing heavy presses like most people do, they can.
  • From what you said your "normal routine" sounded...

    From what you said your "normal routine" sounded like 15 years of shoulder issues and a non-repairable connective tissue disorder - prior to the torn RC/labrum. You can always give it a try but just...
  • Given your years of shoulder issues, connective...

    Given your years of shoulder issues, connective tissue disorder, torn RC/labrum and upcoming surgery, personally I would skip OHP variants altogether - and just stick to regular BP/incline presses...

    Since you had been looking for a high rep, low weight program without any big lifts, I'd say mission accomplished.
  • If you're sure you can't tighten up your form at...

    If you're sure you can't tighten up your form at all, try working some pause and/or pin BP into your routine to help you at the bottom.

    You can train muscles on consecutive days (or every day), but the volume must be managed appropriately. Your trainer's program with or without the 5th day looks crappy tbh, but can't say for sure...

    Use the mirror and personal preference as your guide for when to stop cutting - bf % estimates are often inaccurate.

    I wouldn't focus so much on artificial tempo/pauses unless there's something...

    Your lack of progress for 15 years likely was more a result of poor programming rather than tempo and form. Not sure what you mean by "correct tempo", and you should've progressed somewhat over time...

    I wouldn't blame any of that on your age. If you want to lift, lift. If you don't, don't. Plenty of other things to do.

    Depth is decent, you'd just need to go slightly deeper if you want to be at or break parallel consistently - but there's no need to go ATG. Many people will round their backs ATG.

    An older style roman chair is pretty much the same setup, but not as good of an opening movie scene. You can also just sit sideways on a bench with your feet under a barbell with something to keep...

    Not a lifetime commitment, either will work and will be better than running your own programs on and off for a few years.

    Based on first video alone:

    Stand tall and pause at the top - you're leaning/hunching forward and your knees are bent.

    Go at least to parallel or just past - you're not going down far enough.

    It'd be easier if you were in a gym with seated machines/cable stations where you can keep your foot elevated or rest it on the floor/equipment, but at home do variations of your exercises seated or...

    At the least, consider adding a couple of compounds to each day for other muscle groups so you get higher frequency along with a little more volume for the week.

    And I don't think your fat gain...

    Did you really rest it for a few months or did you just try to train through it?

    If you did rest and it's been months, consider going back to the doctor for an MRI and X-ray to make sure there's...
