Doing overhead work can be humbling to strong athletes who lack flexibility. They are always surprised when they struggle to hold even light weights over their head. Truly, it doesn’t matter how strong you are if you don’t have the ability to effectively extend through your thoracic spine so your arms are completely vertical overhead with the elbows locked.
Even with weight below the waist there is a tendency to get thrown around as fatigue accumulates. Be mindful of staying as upright as possible and not letting the weights pull you forward. A common mistake is looking down. Your body tends to go where your eyes take it. Keep your eyes and head horizontal at all times.
Few movements tax the shoulders like reverse bear crawls, especially at the end of a DB complex.
