Yoga does not focus on proper shoulder alignment, which many programmers need fixed.

More minimising than eliminating, so I don't mind if they're a secondary muscle worked, or like deadlifts, there's such a back benefit I don't mind too much that they're strong on the legs too. Yes, I'd like to squat less and I'm only doing one deadlifting workset a week, hence looking for replacements.

@VPeric, yep, I'm doing GreySkull LP purposely for this reason.

@Kate, I like the total body exercises due to the core involvement and applicability to every day activity. Goals are to strengthen lower back and widen upperbody to lose "bargearse" nickname (youtube.com/watch?v=eMmkJvUPsfE)

With my final set, my final rep suffers no loss of form (I'd stop if I feel loss of form simply knowing the injuries awaiting if I don't, plus I go down until I hit the safety bars so I can't cheat). I do feel I could make another rep, possibly two, but it would be vein-popping. By bailing out, I'm meaning I just stopping in the down position rather than collapsing from fatigue. Does that sound ok?

The light headedness only lasts for a second or two, so it's over before I'd have a chance to sit down.

I seem to bail out every week, so can't really say if I'd feel it if I racked standing up. I definitely don't get it in the initial 2 x 5 worksets, but I haven't reached the stage where they are taxing yet.

It's been happening pretty much since day 1 as the final set I seem to go to the same level of exertion.
