Comments:

* I went to do a forth set and my left shoulder popped out again. I am going to have to do something different to build my shoulders. I am hoping I can rely on high pulls because I don’t have much interest in doing lateral raises.

Comments:

* I was able to do all 5 sets without any fear of my left shoulder popping out although it did feel a little raw from yesterday’s workout. I just recently started pressing overhead again since injuring my left shoulder. I started out with a strict press but it was causing my shoulder to pop out. The standing shoulder press is a shorter range of motion lowering the bar to chin height rather then resting it on the clavicles such as in the strict press.
