A lot of times people place the bar on their neck which is just too damn high or even on the bone which hurts. You don't need the pussy pad for this. I like the bar above my delts but under my traps. I don't have any rear shots but I guess check my vid (sorry)

Yep, that's where I'd like to hold the bar... but can't. Sad face.

So when you have it where I have it, it hurts your delts? Did you play with elbow angle?

Nice job! I gotta push myself, you're catching up This isn't my current max but I haven't tested in a while. My deadlift is embarrassingly higher. I need to get my squat up. I hit the 405 for reps on the dead and hit a 545 max last week. But I get so damn scared with the squats even with the safeties.

Down to 171 this morning. Macros were readjusted for slightly lower carb intake for this week. We'll see if it accelerates weight loss without making me feel like shit.

I literally can't move my arms back enough to hold the bar behind my head Doesn't hurt delts at all.. the only thing that hurts is when I try doing it and the bar ends up ramming into the highest vertabra in my neck. I just don't have the mobility. As I'm moving my arms back (pretending to hold a bar), I get to about vertically parallel with the rest of my body and it's like I hit a wall. I can't physically move any further back. I don't know if it is related to rotator cuff, or something else altogether, but yeah... it's just not happening.

When you squat you're kind of like this <. Your back might be a little more erect but you don't need to squat L where your back is straight up. You'll never get deep enough unless you're a flexible Olympian. You need to post a video. The Mountain is taller than you and much thicker and hits it.

Maybe so, but he hasn't suffered ~50+ shoulder dislocations over the years, from about 2005-2010... it's nothing that I'm doing wrong. My shoulders just cannot move as necessary. No amount of anything has resulted in increased movement in my shoulder joints. You should see me throw a baseball... I throw like a girl these days because I can't wind my arm back like everyone else.

I'm reconsidering physiotherapy... I get the feeling a therapist would be able to help me out tremendously, over a period of time... it's just a matter of doing it. I hate physiotherapy

I think you gotta just find some activity that works for you... part of getting old, which sucks.

my old theory use to be to work through the pain, but I'm trying a new one which says find something that doesn't hurt.

If you sit on your ass long enough, it'll hurt, then not.

Yeah this. My mantra is "Safety first". Sure I could've pushed an extra rep but I need my back.

Welp, my 12 weeks are up. I went from a starting weight of 175.1 to 166.4. Not quite my goal weight but I'm certainly going to keep going. I lost ~3" from my waist and started to get visible abs. Looking forward to maintaining the lifestyle!

Fuck yeah, mang! Good job!!!!

Just stick to it- it's totally fine you didn't hit your goal. It's more important that you made lifestyle changes and you continue them, as opposed to losing x amount of pounds in x amount of time.

Shiiiet, think where you can be a year from now! Mad props for the progress you've made so far. Sounds easy... But it's not!

Thanks dudes! I went to see the doc the other day and found that I've lost 22lbs since the last time I went to see him. He was impressed.
