As far as the elbow/arm further forward, that is something that happens when a set gets tough (or I fail, shown above). I guess that is how my body compensates. What I am trying to figure out is which muscles are suspect. Rotator cuff muscles? The deltoid itself?[/quote]
Like I mentioned, I think it may be a scapular issue. The muscles that lock it back allowing your elbow to stay to the side and keep your shoulder down may not be strong enough to keep it locked down. It then floats to the side and up causing the above issues, which in turn makes it harder to lift.
I think a video would be a lot better to try and see whats going on. Maybe a heavy set you can barely hit 3 reps on. Maybe then we can see the first rep and then see how your form changes by the third when it’s harder.[/quote]
I will try to take a video next week. Lets pretend for now we think we know which muscles are weak. Do I just train that side heavier? more reps? Obviously it needs to tear down and recover at a faster cyclical rate than my right side, if it is to catch up. Should I do lighter unilateral reps every day? heavier, but once more per week? I am open to ideas and experience.
Well, I guess if you want to ignore other possibilities and have already made up your mind it’s weak prime movers, then you’ve already answered your own question. I’m not so sure that’s the real problem.
No, Im just talking out loud to keep the thread going.
