Figured out a major problem with my push press. Lack of flexibility. I can’t rack the bar correctly so when I start the dip and drive I am holding the bar too high taking away a good portion of my power.

To prove a point just how bad my flexibility regressed I just pressed the weight easier than I was push pressing.
