Want to avoid picking up shoulder niggles and get a bigger back? Drop your ego, learn proper form, then slowly build up from there to make workouts more productive and injury free.
❌Lift with ego
❌elbow rising up (internal rotation)
❌using just biceps
✅focus on stimulating your back
✅keep shoulder back and down (scapula retraction/depression)
✅grip the handle light and lead with the elbow
Achieving good form, in particular executing scapula retraction, can be difficult due to having round shoulders. To improve posture and technique
✅stretch/foam roll chest
✅Lots of facepulls
✅take care of rotator cuffs
✅strengthen lower traps
More to come tomorrow on how the same applies to training chest.
