As to the 5 to 10 second rest I don't see a problem. I usually take 1-2 breaths between each rep to reset my valsalva. So if your more in the 5 second range your fine....Personally I could not ek out any more rep with a 10 vs a 5 second break.... If I'm gonna fail with only 5 I'm gonna fail even if I take 10 so I don't think it matters one bit.
For the shoulders I pull em back and draw my shoulderblades down toward my arse as cues. And yes like yodi said about that slight rotation at the humerus/shoulder.

3 years "low carb" Primal.
Dietary hierarchy is: Fatty and gelatinous meat/eggs/seafood/offal > raw and fermented dairy > nuts and seeds > fruit > starch > veggies > everything else.
Backyard permaculture, gardening, and fermentation as healthy hobbies. Lift heavy stuff and move a lot.
