third, your upper back is super rounded. this looks like more of a lack of mobility than anything you're doing/not doing intentionally. but that will limit what you can do in the lifts - spend lots of time foam rolling and stretching so you can get fully extended.
finally, and probably most importantly, you need to be way more aggressive. it looks like you're not putting any effort into it at all - it's understandable to not be moving super fast when you're thinking about all the things you need to do, but try some reps without thinking and focus only on speed - you might be surprised how well they turn out.
Thanks a lot for the advice!
My upper back is a mess, to many years of benching with zero overhead work and zero stretching combined with 8+ hours sitting in front of a computer and I am hunched over like quasimodo. I foam roll it almost daily now but progress is staggeringly slow.
What stretches would you advice me to hit to lose up the area more?
I will try out the things you suggest and get back on how it feels!
