Start doing your pressing movements on a decline even if it is only a slight decline make the change. Not only will you decrease shoulder involvement but it is also more of a natural pressing angle. Start mixing in the decline and see what happens.
Keep two words in mind when it comes to your workouts
EFFICIENT and EFFECTIVE
I don't have the energy is one of the worst excuses someone could have to not workout. When you start exercising more you will have more energy, period......so do it! This is why some of the most successful people in the world workout because they know it will give them more energy in their day to do better business and work longer hours.
If you walk into the gym and feel totally brain dead and have no idea what to do that day simply follow this:
AFTER A WARMUP
Alternate between upper and lower body exercises, choosing 3-4 of each. Do between 10-12 reps and do 3-4 sets taking rest between rounds as long as you need but no longer than 5 minutes. End with some core. Follow the KISS principle and keep it simple stupid as they say.
