Keep your elbows in when doing any kind of press, when they go out it impinges the shoulder, and actually takes stress away from the chest, and moves it to the shoulder. Keep them in and your tris take over as your chest tires. Feels weird at first if you are used to lifting elbows out, but your shoulder joints will thank you down the road.

Took your advice and concentrated on sucking the elbows in today. Certainly felt it hit my tricepts more and less in my shoulders.

Ever so slightly, yes. Think of it with a straight-bar, lowering in-front of your head is far better than behind. With shoulder press keeping the elbows "in" means slightly forward. You may not feel much of a difference until you hurt one, then you'll know exactly how having tour shoulders back stresses the joint.

I stopped BB shoulder press years ago and behind the neck before that. Saw no point to it. Only press moves I do now with BB is flat bench. Used to work out with a competitive power lifter who showed me the correct way to bench. Even after that the shoulders would sometimes sting. Anymore in my case I think it's due to old age.

Failed miserably at 115ís attempt. Did too many warm-up sets I think because I was skurrd to try it. Will have to wait for another time due to changing up routine next week.

Since starting the diet thing almost a year ago I've now lost 46lbs. Approximately 8 months of keto has been responsible for 36 of those. Running is far easier now and my motorcycle accelerates much quicker.
219 as of yesterday. I'm thinking 205 is the lowest I want to go.

Pick up a 45lb dumbbell and try it, if you think it's so easy now...
