Re: Shoulder racking bar between reps on a shoulder press

OK, I just re-read the shoulder press chapter in Rippetoe. It looks like for the shoulder press, you're not supposed to go into a full rack position (like when doing a front squat). Your elbows are only supposed to be slightly in front of the bar.

That would explain why it was more awkward trying to rest between reps - given that I was rotating right around it.

It also is more natural to touch-and-go if you're not trying to go into a full rack.
