In an attempt to make you all regret ever helping, I'll bore you with a status. The extra stretching, rolling, and bar path/technique cues seemed to help with the pain. I still could not pop up weights (155/165) like I feel/know I should have. Its gotta be in my head (although I know the pain part was real). My thought is to be patient and stay the course with all that has been offered but also looking for drills to assist in confidence and bar path and possibly some cues to help with shoulder blade retraction (got Greg's drills for that in earlier post). The "turtle back," as someone called it, is a result of me pushing shoulders forward to rack the bar-retract the shoulder blades and rack goes away. Unfortunately could not video last night but I will have video of next jerk session and will seek your help once again. Thanks all!
