First off, this is one of my favorite training clips of all-time. From the adorably innocent “Oh, I’m sorry” to your super-pissed face on the second set:
Seems like you’re a big advocate (too easy pun, not intended) of behind-the-neck pressing. Could you talk a bit about it, in general?
Do you prefer it over military pressing or is it just a solid alternative? I’ve noticed that your ROM is generally down to ear-level, not taking the bar all the way to the neck, so would you say that’s an effective range for most people to shoot for?
To assess mobility and make sure it’s a good fit, is it as simple as starting with the bar, doing some reps to check tolerance, and progressing gradually?
I’ve been playing around with them more, and one effective cue I’ve settled into is “elbows back” during the negative as a way to avoid letting the hands drift into external shoulder rotation. Otherwise I find the bar wants to fall backwards and crank the socket.
