    Well, I did not feel any impinging sensation whatsoever. Perhaps keeping my elbows from flaring early prevented me from abducting AND internally rotating my humeri early, i.e. during the ROM prior to them being at 90 degrees to the floor? I know from your podcast that that position is a surefire way to impinge the soft tissue around the shoulder.
    I don't know what "flaring the elbows" means, since it's an imprecise phrase. Have I ever used the term? Where?

    Oh it’s not from SS 3rd ed. I heard the cue “keep your elbows forward” in one of the Barbell Logic podcast episodes, “Cues for Building a Big Press.”
