Coach D and Coach Trent discuss how they modify the barbell lifts and the novice linear progression for trainees with weak, injured, or tight shoulders. As always, they stick by the basic principle of making the lifter adapt to the model and the process, not adapting the process to fit the lifter. Often, simply following the process with attention to executing good technique will solve movement problems related to weakness or range of motion within a few weeks of starting the novice LP.
However, some lifters continue to struggle after following the process, at which point it may be time to modify the movement, the load progression, or change exercises altogether.
