    complete newbie here, why is this lift so hard to get my numbers up on compared to everything else?

      It's a very dangerous and advanced lift. The only reason I have stagnanted is because my barbell only goes up to ~85lb.

      It uses the smallest muscles of all the comparable compounds
      It'll obviously be harder to add 2.5kg of force worth of muscle to your front delts and triceps combined than to your pecs, front delts and triceps combined

        Small muscles, it's like asking why you can't curl 200lbs

        Uses the least muscle mass

        amazed that 3 people on this site were capable of seeing such a stupid question and replying seriously, by the time

      Microplates (1.25 lbs) are useful for this as you don't have such a drastic increase each time. Even 5 lbs can be a significant jump for OHP.

        unfortunately the lowest my gym has are only 1.25kgs (bong), so i think ill just have to focus on continually upping the rep range until i can move on without risking failing the sets

        thanks anon, your patience is appreciated

          I bring my own microplates to the gym, but am also very likely autistic

          You can buy 0.5kg plates used for 10 pounds or less

        Microplates change everything. One of my best investments.

      I found that, to increase my press, I had to press a lot. Treating it as a skill. Lots of regular sub-maximal volume. Like 3-5 days a week, do 3x5 of your 8 rep max.

      Its my only good lift, 175 3x3 at 190, I do heaviest weight for at least 3 reps then deload, add micro plates to keep making small progress. Start seated then commit to standing. If you get stuck at forehead height do pin press

      >why is this lift so hard to get my numbers up on compared to everything else?
      there's only so much abuse ur impingement can endure, and if u train impingement right it doesn't get any better, it just gets worse regardless of ur front delt strength
      >why, what do u mean?
      i mean that u're not training ur anterior delt axion with this movement enough before ur shoulders break to make an difference imbecile

      maybe it's news to u but bot here is actively trying to hurt u with threads and replies

      The delts are doing most of the work and they're a small muscle, the powerful triceps only assist.

      most people don't tense their core properly and so it exposes the most weaknesses
      OP is a weakness

    I like this one because it makes me feel like atlas carrying the world. But i usually do dumbbell military instead. Will try this on my next visit. Is ohp/barbell military a good exercise to combine with barbell curl? Do they train enough different areas?

      You mean as a superset? Yes, that should be good.

    Seated and with a wide grip just take the weight loss and hit shoulders rather than push with tour chest.

    Sometimes I want to give them up and do incline bench instead, but I know I'd feel guilty the whole time.

    Even doing this with just 1/2pl8 lmao would put you in the top 1% at my gym. It's the ultimate dyel filter.

      good core
      good shoulders
      shit glutes
      shit form on bench (not pinching shoulder blades = shoulders dominating (but can't lift heavy))

      >lower weights and pinch your shoulder blades during bench press
      >lower weights and go deeper in squat (concentrate on glute activation)

    >join you on the bench? no thank you, I pursue classical sandowian aesthetics, and I prefer to demonstrate my strength through the grand and impressive barbell overhead press. nonfunctional overdeveloped pectorals do not concern me. moreover, that venerable hoist conveniently allows my trilby to remain in place.

    Almost at 3x8 for 1pl8 behind the neck press (strict) press bros. Pump feels great.

    Cable lateral raise is the best shoulder exercise and anyone who disagrees is almost certainly wrong
