    Seriously. People were talking about deadlifts tweaking your back. Everytime I do OHP my back feels funny. I try my hardest not to lean back and that helps but if I wanted super strict form, then the weight would be too light

      If you're leaning, it's too heavy. Maybe not for your arms, but definitely for your core. Stop egolifting and focus on form. Better yet, swap the exercise out for a different lift like incline bench until you build your core.

      Clench your glutes, tighten core and brace like for every single other lift. You lean back only with thoracic extension, not lower back super extension.
      Then you press and get under the bar as soon as it clears your forehead.
      >the weight would be too light
      You never learned correct form. You are therefore weak in all the positions that doesn't involve a standing incline bench circus act. Yes, you have to reset down to 95lbs or whatever and learn the lift. That is the price for being retarded when you start out.

    Honestly, everything in the gym is dangerous. People try to dance around it by talking about form and technique etc, but lifting heavy shit is inherently dangerous. Every great powerlifter/bodybuilder/strongman probably has more injuries than he/she can fit on a single page of paper.

    That said, there's a risk reward ratio that you need to determine for yourself. You can significantly lower the risks by learning good form and technique, doing the proper prehab and rehab movements to build small muscles (for shoulder this is the rotator cuff muscles), and by checking your ego at the door and lifting intelligently. This can allow you to lift more safely for longer and lift heavier. If you want to lift super heavy, there's risk, but for me also a great reward.

    So yeah, OHP is a dangerous movement, but there are many ways to make it safer that aren't simply "don't do it". The guy who is hunched over all day with a kyphotic posture and internally rotated shoulders probably shouldn't OHP, but the guy who does rotator cuff work, lots of rows and pullups and has good posture can do OHP with little to no issues for a long time.

      >The guy who is hunched over all day with a kyphotic posture and internally rotated shoulders probably shouldn't OHP
      This is the guy that SHOULD be OHPing. Lifting fixes basically every posture issue that isnt genetic (as in, obviously if your bones are fused wrong then lifting wont fix that).
      OHP, squats and diddlies in particular did so much for my overall shoulder and back health

        This is also true for me. Before I started lifting I had a fucked posture, lots of back pains, especially when standing for a long time. Now all those problems are gone

        You're right but should he go from sedentary to OHP? With light enough weight, maybe. But like the other poster said, maybe that guy should get into a routine that includes pull-ups and other shoulder movements regularly first, and start OHP once he's gotten some posture and cns improvement from lifts that are easier to learn and perform safely. Not that OHP is oh so hard, just might be step 2 not step 1.

          You can do every exercice as a starter as long as the weight is low enough. The issue is that some people like the severe DOMS they get from their first hard workout and then start egolifting afterwards to chase that ‘high’ again.

      acute injuries are much much less severe than the lifestyle injuries acrued from poor posture and sedentary lifestyle. Being strong also makes you more impervious to the negative effects of the injuries themselves, for instance a good portion of lifters have a partially herniated disc but they literally dont know and wont find out because the surrounding musculature is so strong it does not continue to bulge.
      Compare this to deskjob workers with weak erectors who get a hernia once and walk funny for the rest of their life because they tried to tie their shoes a little too fast.
      It's not a big deal to get a minor injury every once in a while, your body has an idea of how to recover and will do so just fine provided the surrounding musculature can support and stabilise your joints through the recovery process, weak people have trouble with this.
      Nobody gets through life without ever getting injured, lifting just makes your body deal with it better.

            Not even. Nta but people severely underestimate how hard heavy OHP is. Unless you're a fat fuck OHP is very difficult. 1pl8 OHP is considered the same strength tier as a 2pl8 bench, 3 pl8 squat, and 4 pl8 deadlift. 105 is a completely normal OHP. Would be the same as a 185 bench or a 250 squat or 3pl8 deadlift

                Yeah maybe if you start out as a fatass, due to how physics works the more you weight the easier OHP'ing becomes because your own lard acts as a counterweight and you need less stabilization and balancing which saps force output.

                I am just saying that the heavier you are, the easier some lifts will be due to how physics works. So progress/starting numbers can't rly be compared in your case vs the average 150-170lbs "normal" guy. No worries bro keep up, that is one of the advantages of weightlifting to lose weight, the big boys already have a leg up on the activity starting out vs running for example.
