Hi Pete, I do a LOT of warming up on an iso press and then the bar (both for 20 or so reps) before pressing. Cold and not ready I'd still struggle to put it straight above my head without pain. That's left only as before. The right is fine

Thanks Steve, yes those high reps really get the blood flowing and warm the whole area.Glad you are able to keep going with them.I have tried to get some younger guys to do them before they actually need to, but no one really listens.
Regards,Peter.

As per if I train double hard on legs the day before then it's that little bit harder to kick ass. Upped a half kilo and got it done anyway.
