Coach's thoughts on today:
5 progressively heavier sets of Dan John's barbell complex E will be no joke. The limiting factor here is the overhead work (usually the behind the neck press). On the technique side, make sure you get your elbows under the bar and your lats and serratus engaged. If you don't have great shoulder range of motion and that is tough for you, 1: let's make sure you have a plan for improving your shoulders and 2: don't worry about the sets of 3 and maybe even the set of 6. That way we can work on quality movement with light loads.
