Probably need to start doing low trap activation/work, that'd be my guess.

^I incorporate t-spine stuff into my warmup / stretches. I'm almost pain free, dunno if they helped but they are in the program that helped. I do foam rolling t spine stretches and bent over t spine rotations. All from Eric Cressey's shit

This kind of stuff? I think I do some of it already like wall slides and pulldowns.

Hmm. I'd have to look at my training log. I just watched the assess and correct DVD from eric cressey and wrote down all the tested i failed and used their correctment suggestions.

Serratus anterior stuff to work on my scap stability. Plus rotator cuff stuff. Apparently the pain was just from disfuction of my scapula and the surrounding muscles tightening up.

don't you just love the days when warm up bar snatches from the hang even feel heavy? I hated those days.

it can go two ways, either you end up putting in some decent lifts or you end up having a training day just slightly of lower value than lukewarm dogshit.

I like this method as well + a few reps of rotators when I'm gonna bench or press.

Wanted to go back to this question. If I transition off a bulk to a cut, will I lose a lot of gains even if my diet is high protein and I'm still lifting heavy?

Yes. You're going to loose mass and strength. That's just the way it is when you cut and everyone looks for the secret pill to prevent that.

Do they sell those on supplement warehouse

Non-troll response: I know you lose mass and strength but how significant is it if you don't go for maintenance for a while, particularly if you're still lifting heavy and eating significant protein

PS That ridiculous pullup gif is always on the right now thanks jarude
