Aubrey is a natural weightlifter. I find in general females make better weightlifters. They’re more flexible, patient, and their egos don’t get in the way. Guys too often are fixated on the weight even if it compromises their form. I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it: Get comfortable being a beginner. Even if you have a lot of training “experience,” learning a new skill, improving mobility, or mastering the finer points of a movement takes time. Patience is a virtue.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stay active against the bar. The barbell is not “resting” on the shoulders. The shoulders are pressing the bar overhead throughout the movement.
