The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Sorry if this is the wrong place for this

    I'm about to go into day 3 of WWB1. Military presses are infront of the chest.

    I have done what I guess are called Behind the neck presses in the past and when I get the bar about mid head level, one of my shoulders make an audible pop, no real pain.

    Is this normal, and if not should I not do those anymore? I'd hate to tear something.


    Thanks

    I'd stick with millies. Pressing behind your neck put your shoulders in a bad position.

    That was my concern. It always feels like i'm stressing the rotator cuffs ( it think) at the low point in the exercise.

    That's because you are. Behind the neck militaries aren't a natural movement.

    Don't lift heavy weight behind your neck. If you want to do them that way, do less weight, as the RCs will be the bottleneck.
