Thanks alot for the video links!

I´m with you on creating torque first and external rotation… I think.. =)

However, I´m still a bit unsure about the shoulders protracting or retracting. As I said when i retract even though the torque and rotation stuff is taken care of, I still seem to be unable  to hold the bar up.

The only way is if I protract, but if I understand it right, this seems to be a bad idea. It kind of looks like the position Kelly talks about in Episode 41 at 2:29
