Doing Overhead Press
Is the Overhead Press Safe? If you can't press the bar overhead, lower it back on your chest & put it on the floor.
The overhead press is a great movement—it's weightlifting's ultimate form. You can't half-ass it. You either get the weight over your head, or you punk out. End of story.
Because it's a demanding movement, it's easy to get stuck. Overhead press gains come much more slowly than gains from squats or deadlifts. Once you've hit a sticking point, adding even five pounds to an overhead press means you've done your damndest to strengthen and grow your shoulders, chest, traps, and arms.
