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...

Jesus. You big bastard!

I am going under the knife again tomorrow. Apparently popped a stitch or two in my hernia area from 2012 or around it. Hopefully that is all it is and what is irritating my back on that side. I may have to start wearing a belt all the time I am doing anything. I almost think it is as much my gun belt grinding across there and constant pulling in that area than the weight lifting. Well that and I am sure building that truck where the tires and wheels weighed 450 lbs probably didn't help any. Started kind of feeling it around January and then my back started acting up. Did some ab work a couple of weeks ago and it really hurt the next day. Like I was dreaming about the pain that night. This old age shit sucks. I guess better than laying around getting diabetes or something.

Did a 3 day fast. Did nothing but drink mineral water (for the electrolytes) the whole time. Towards the end it kind of hurt, when the big detox was kicking in. Trying to work my way up to be able to fast for a week.

Currently I only eat once a day, or every 24 hours. 7 meals a week. Lowered caloric intake = super health.

Still lifting...still training. But man I'm on that "light weight" kick at least by your standards. I am surprised that I can still keep size on with low(ish) weight and higher reps.

I've had to also increase cardio now that I'm old and my metabolism is gone.

My biggest problem was the chronic pain from heavy weights. Rarely did I have any serious injuries...but there was always something that hurt fairly bad. "Light" weights were intended to be a temporary thing but they have stuck around a bit longer than expected.

Getting stronger while losing weight at any age past 21 is badass. Props.

This is basically where I'm at. The heave weights that I worked up to always left my shoulders sore for most of the week. This was after making adjustments like tucking elbows in, switching to dumbbells, etc.

Now, the older I get, I'm noticing much older people and how a lot of them are over weight, aren't very mobile, can't stand straight, can't put on a pair of pants, etc. My focus seems to have made a shift towards more cardio, stretching and basically maintaining a decent physic rather than going for Mr. Oplymia so that hopefully I can wipe my own butt when I'm 70.
