    If you think it just looks like an awkward shoulder shrug then you've definitely never really reaped the full benefits of the exercise. The BOR as above is not a vertical up and down motion, it is...

    Retraction isn't really a function of the lats. That has much more to do with the traps and rhomboids. Full/max depression of shoulder blades will fully activate the lats.

    What I've personally found is when I do a million reps of crunches, they never really did much for me... I've tried weighted versions as well but they never really helped. What really got the...

    The upper traps elevate only. So after you shrug up it's done. Rolling doesn't do anything for it.

    It would be like if you biceps curled up and then you started waving the dbs left and right...

    Never really been a fan of the cable crunches... Sometimes I'm not really sure what muscle i'm using in the process of getting that cable down. My neck, my forearms, or is it my abs?

    You look significantly better than the last video you posted. Overall it is very acceptable in my book.

    If you keep failing the upper body lifts and having to continually deload then you are definitely not getting in enough quality work volume for the ohp and bench.

    Progress to "greasing the groove". First week we would do sets of 1 pull up spread through out the entire session. Example would be do 1 pull up. Go do a set of squats. Do another pull up. Second set...

    A few years ago, I convinced my gf to start lifting. Problem was that she couldn't do a single pull up. Pretty common story right. Anyhow we crashed that barrier with using the assisted pull up...
