Now we move back to the shoulder. Shoulder pain is probably the biggest source of problems I deal with as a clinician.

Check out the video below to see how we like to modify pressing for people with shoulder pain.
There it is. Next time you get an athlete with shoulder pain during pressing give some of these modifications a shot.
