OK, so I wanted to make this longer, but it kept running into problems publishing when it went too long. Feel free to ask as many questions as are needed, as I'm sure I went through this pretty quickly and may have been unclear about some things. I've also never done any kind of VLog, so if I say "um" a lot or have a goofy expression, be kind, as this is my first, LOL. -3X

You guys may find the following pics useful before/while you view:

Very well done 6minute video. Would suggest everyone take the time to watch it.

Really emphasizes how weak the shoulder joint really is.

Awesome Vlog! Thanks @eknight.

I'll be sure to share this with people.

Also, boxers are the best breed of dogs ever! We had a five year old male boxer when my little brother was born, and we were a little nervous because our dog was so hyper. He wound up being great around the baby though.

Great upload. Great insight into stabilisers and joint behaviour.

@KnifeHands on your phone, get into the thread, then hit the home button taking you back to you main phone screen, then get back into safari, you should still be in the thread, then hit the refresh and the vid should pop up as viewable...

Just watched the vid, I had no idea the shoulder joint moved that way, good to know...

Awesome to actually see sort of a working example of how things look inside of the joints mid-lift. Maybe you could do more videos with a skeletal model? Either way, great info.

First off I'd like to thank you for making that vid, very informative, very easy to follow along too, and i'm definitely more of a visual learner so this was great.

I just have one question, when you were talking about bench press and the sliding of the humerus in the GH joint, were you advising not to bring the bar down to the chest? Or were you advising not to bring the bar down partially?

Very informative and very well executed @eknight. You don't sound angry like I imagine when I read your posts

Looking forward to more vlogs in the future. You definitely have a knack for it.

Take the bar to chest to deload joints. Same as squats, the weakest position is @ 90 degrees if I'm not mistaken

okay that makes sense,

my buddy is doing this exact same thing, he claims that doing the full range of motion is what messed up his rotator cuff, now he essentially only does partial reps on bench press now, it looks kind of silly

He essentially stops his reps at 90 degrees

@eknight I know you said at around 90 degrees is where the most stress is put on the rotator cuffs to act as dynamic stabilizers. Can you elaborate on where the force is distributed once you bring the bar lower to your chest?

really cool that you did this, you clarified things for me quite a bit, the visual helps to explain the glide really well, had a hard time picturing it til now. are you thinking of making more of these?
btw, sick shirt. punisher is the best.
ek for president!

Great shirt, I have the same one.
Got two questions though. You used the phrase 'deload the weight' in regards to touching the chest on bench press. Would you therefore recommend a definite touch on the collar bone when doing ohp each rep? Also, would touching a Dumbell lightly to the chest adequately perform this 'deload' when doing db presses?
