        I like both. BB gives you the ability to lift a lot more weight, especially if your gym has a seated OHP setup or a low-back bench so you can do them seated. But yes, DB does give you a much more natural range of motion and requires lateral control/stabilization, which is really important for the shoulder joint in particular and building a kind of strength that will help prevent injury

      My gym does not have a free barbell outside of power cages where I'd be able to do this exercise. I'm not a manlet so I'd hit the top of the cage instantly. So I'm relegated to dumbbell OHP.

        you're wrong on all points. in what sport are you pushing overhead (strongman and weightlifting don't count and ohp isn't even a useful exercise for weightlifting).

        bench press improves overhead press, but overhead press doesn't improve bench in my and many others experience.

        rip your rotator cuffs.

        rip your lower back.

        medial and rear delts don't even get hit well by it, its an ineffective shoulder builder.

        it doesn't put enough load on the triceps compared to many other movements like a close grip bench press.

        great so you cheated and turned it into a standing incline, putting stress on your lower back and just slightly utilizing your upper chest.

            The horizontal pressing trained for sport does not utilize the pecs as the primary movers, it is front delt and tricep. An athletic grip would be close grip.

            >it doesn't put enough load on the triceps
            >lol
            >lmao
            If I can close grip 3 plates for 10 reps and overhead press 1.5 plates for the same number of reps, which movement going to have more mechanical tension be put into the triceps?

            >Again, sounds like a "you" problem

            My form is fine, the general gym goer and average DYEL though, not so much.

            There are many better ways to build shoulders than standing barbell OHP.

          The plane that you're pressing on doesn't really matter. Any sport that involves fast tricep flexion, like boxing for example. Overhead push presses are especially good for this too.

          >rip your rotator cuffs.
          >rip your lower back.
          More like RIP your form. Hire a coach or watch videos on proper form.
          >medial and rear delts don't even get hit well by it, its an ineffective shoulder builder.
          Name me a single pressing exercise that builds up your rear and lateral delts. I'll wait.
          >it doesn't put enough load on the triceps compared to many other movements like a close grip bench press
          It doesn't put as much load on your triceps as an exercise that is designed to overload your triceps. Wow. Great point anon.
          >great so you cheated and turned it into a standing incline, putting stress on your lower back and just slightly utilizing your upper chest.
          You should not be standing incline for the entire movement. Once again read about form.

        It's optimal for strength and hypertrophy to start shoulder day with some low rep OHPs and finish with high rep lateral raises to finish burning out your delts. With some other, moderate-rep lifts like incline bench or arnold press between the two of course.
        I'm a pretty intermediate lifter, but am happy with my delts

        you would look exactly the same if you didn't do OHP. it doesn't add hypertrophy at all.

      >doesn't transfer well into athletics
      Transfers better than bench. Regardless, irrelevant because no one here trains for sports performance.
      >doesn't improve your bench
      Fortunately, I bench to improve my bench. On the other hand, I ohp to improve my ohp.
      >easily injures your shoulders
      No it doesn't, your shoulders are meant to work through their full range of motion. Start with a weight you're able to lift, not the one you want to lift. Benching without ohp WILL lead to injury, though.
      >easily injures your back
      Clench your abs during a standing ohp. Just because you have poor form doesn't mean it's a bad lift. Start with a weight you're able to lift, not the one you want to lift.
      >easy to cheat
      Then don't cheat?? Tf you talking about, touch or pause clavicles and fully lock out. Just because you have poor form doesn't mean it's a bad lift.
      >ineffective at building shoulders
      Idk about you but I'm capped from ohp. Just because you're a non-responder doesn't mean it's a useless lift.
      >ineffective at building triceps
      Best compound for triceps. Better than your treasured bench. Better than a close grip bench. triceps are your weakness if ohp prioritization leaves you with any desire for tricep isolation. But just because you're a non-responder doesn't mean it's a useless lift.
      >doesn't build your chest
      Neither do squats but you still squat

        Coaches never program OHP. And they do that for a reason. Unneeded wear and tear on the shoulders.

    Am I missing much if I don't push my head through the window between my arms? I'm up to 115lbs but if I push my head through my shoulder impinges.
    >Well fix your shoulder
    I'm trying but it's slow progress doing external and internal rotation training and stretches to restore ROM. It doesn't help that my job is putting a lot of stress on my shoulder to force it to be chronically internally rotated

      Do whats comfortable, impingement is a bitch. The more you impinge the more youll aggravate the tendon and the higher the likelyhood of injury. Maybe youre missing some neck gains idk, but its better to do that than to be unable to ohp due to a slow healing tendon injury

      If you're healing from a shoulder injury, you probably should avoid overhead work in general

      • 7 days ago
        Anonymous

        You probably have a point but it's that there wasn't a strict "injury event" so I don't know how to classify it. Had a rotator cuff injury literally like 8 years ago and sometimes it flares back up if I get cocky and let my form degrade or push too high on progression.
        I know continuing to train when under strain like this is generally bad, but getting stronger has made it hurt much less in normal day to day circumstances.
        I should probably drop the overhead and just focus on those rehab exercises for a while until it feels back to "Normal".
        Still fucking PISSED that 8 years ago they never officiall diagnosed it, just gave me generic rehab. Should I see a pro?

              Physiotherapy is good if it follows research, most if it dont. If they do a lot of passive treatments where the patient lays there and they "adjust or align" something through backy cracky, theyre shit.

              If they tell their patients that theyre misaligned, and the pain they got is due to some muscle imbalance, or posture, theyre shit.

        No, you may be leaning too far back. After you clear your head, you need to shoot it back in front of the bar so that you are pressing vertically. I injured my pec and switched to ohp instead of bench because it puts very little strain on it.

      If you can rep for five 115 cleanly, it's surprising you can't do one plate. Just add those little 2.5s and you'll get there.

    Barbell press has gained a almost cult like attitude from certain people if it does nothing for you try a variation like dumbell or machine , problem with people trying to body build and improve thier looks is they can get swamped in the dogma of what X Y Z personality or group says when exercises are somewhat individual and what might be the number one exercise for you now in six months might not be as good then you switch to a variation and you're golden and that trash exercise for you may now be the good one you basically cycle through four to five exercises for whatever muscle overtime
