I'm the only one who OHP in my gym

Never seen anyone else do it. Most everyone else uses the weight machines. Those that use the free weight mostly use dumbbells. Those that use barbells pretty much only squat and deadlift. I've never seen another person OHP. What's the deal. Are people afraid of embarrassing themselves because they can't lift much?

      People who think barbell overhead press is bad for you have poor shoulder mobility and strength. Usually they don’t have the coordination to externally rotate their elbows meaning they can’t get thier heads through their shoulder girdle without something clicking. 70% of people do this naturally but the load minority of mobility fags bitch about muh dumbbell press.

    The reason no-one does it is because there's better shoulder exercises...

    This is coming from someone who has been doing it for years and will continue doing it occasionally. It's a fun compound exercise to push yourself with and get stronger at, but I honestly don't believe it gave me any gains whatsoever. Lat raises primarily is what will give you those 3D cannonball delts.

    OHP is just way overrated on this board because it's full of powershitters and starting strength enthusiasts.

          awesome anon already linked video for lying lat raised. it's great since in the lower phase most of the job is done by muscles connected to the shoulder blade. Thile when you in horizontal position, the moment of force is the largest in the lowest phase. so you work out lats. Standing lat raises don't do anything for lats for 1/3 of the movement, for the most important part of the movement.

    It's a hard lift but getting those numbers up feels great and builds some good front delts. I have bottom 5% delt genetics and couldn't even start with the bar. Got it up to 5x6-12 at 145 now after 2 years of work. I'm genetic trash for anything delt related and I mog the fuck out of other people at that lift now. If you have normal genetics and you keep at it you'll look like a God practicing that press for a few years and you'll make everyone jealous.

    I agree with OP. I only see OHP in my private gym. (Me and 1 other guy do it) it is the hardest lift to gain on. I started at 95 lbs 1 rep max 6 months ago and today my 1 rep max is 155. Despite constantly pumping shoulders. But remember: you dont need to lift shoulders heavy. OHP is a slow burn or you will tear some shit and you wont be able to do anything else heavy. I know because i am a doc and refer idiots for rotator cuff repairs every day.

        but you can also do it a bit less strict, by e.g. doing touch and go (starting the lift at rack position instead of at the neck, going down to the neck and pressing up from there etc.)

    Because the OHP is fucking useless and (generally speaking) a huge fucking burden on every important joint in the upper body. The juice isn't worth the squeeze, you're like 90% more likely to fuck up your shoulder in a major way doing barbell OHP, than you're likely to ever see any real going doing barbell OHP.

    Gosh this whole thread is such depressing garbage. Full of just outright wrong and retarded shit.
    The barbell OHP is good for your shoulders and helps protect them in bench. Literally no one hurts themselves with a properly executed OHP and tons of people with absolutely mangled rotator cuffs can OHP just fine because impingement on the OHP is basically impossible because the scapulae are free to move out of the way, unlike the bench.
    You can get huge shoulders just pressing, but if you're pressing bitch weight like 1pl8 that obviously isn't going to happen.

        You fuck your rotator cuff during bench because you have so much weight on your joints that if you don't maintain your form immaculately at high weights, it tears the ligaments. The same is not true of OHP, you can literally just look at an anatomy chart or feel it when you do the lift and see this. Oh wait, you don't lift.

      It's not powershitters, everyone here is just a retard who talks past each other.

      Barbell ohp is based af and I love doing it heavy.

      Overhead pressing is not the one key movement to blow up your shoulders. Even with dumbbells it's not the shit-delt panacea. If you only care about hypertrophy, barbell overhead pressing is by far a way less efficient way to get buff than through isolation exercises.

      I think most people should do both because you look kinda funny if your shoulders are big but your traps haven't been built because it was all strict cable lateral raises. You look disproportionate and your physique looks unnatural.

      Lifting heavy also supposedly benefits your hypertrophy via systemic anabolism. Who knows. I lift heavy because I feel great when I do.

      No pressing movement is inherently dangerous, and if you're not stupid you won't get snapped up doing them.

      It's congruent for all these statements to be true.

            if you press along the side of your body (the bottom point of the press is when your upper arm is parallel to the floor) you cut about 1/2 of the ROM as compared to a barbell ohp where the bottom of the press is with the barbell at the bottom of your neck

                you could, but that would make it closer to an Arnold press. What most people talk about when claiming their db press numbers is the classic bro-form shoulder press along the side

                think of this form. he could barbell ohp 1pl8 for some reps in his vids, his 1rm was probably in the 70-80kg range for reference

    I'm the only one who OHP in my gym as well, but that's because I have a home gym.

    It appears that OHP is the most controversial lift. From what I gather it is because ego lifters are afraid to do it because they will have to use baby weight.

      It's literally r*ddit transplants my man. Back prior to like, 2013 if you said anything other than lel or kek you got 5 replies telling you to go back.

      What's the correct way to do lat raises?

      Grab DB, lean forward with your back straight while standing up, lift weights out to the sides with your arms facing the front of you, but not like a front raise. I have a hard time explaining this tbh. Do them 3x15-20, or 25-30. I'll do strict lat raises at pretty high reps with lower weight. You'll only hurt yourself trying to do straight up front raises (front raises are stupid, do ohp) or if you try and strict lat raise as much weight as you can like if you were "cheating" the reps. Honestly just do a shit ton of lat raises this way and you'll get big side delts. Do rear delt raises too, look up how John meadows does them, pbuh

    Hello fellow redditors, I also do not OHP. It's very simple, I use weight machines and dumbbells for shoulders, not those barbaric barbells. Oh god no, ew. And the reason for this is simple: science.

        Been out of lifting for a while. Coming back and am stalled at 95lb for reps. I used to be able to do 145lb for reps. I remember working up to that. It wasn't too bad. One week you just add 2.5lbs for literally only 1 or 2 reps, then drop it down again and finish. Then next week 3-4 reps and drop it down again to finish. Bit of a pain to keep changing weights in the work out, but works.

        Stalled at 95 too, took me like 3 months to get to 1pl8, switch to standing dbs for a bit, right after I progressed on them and went back to bb I hit a plate in 2 weeks

    What are the benefits of dumbellOHP over barbell?

    Does anyone here do DB?

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      stablising dumbbells overhead over yourself, overhead press or bench, tends to be harder than doing so with a barbell. If you like the barbell OHP, dumbbell can be a way to drive progress with the barbell, since stability and balance is a huge part of the barbell OHP. So if you've got a problem where one bad rep will sink your set with the barbell some assistance work with dumbbells will absolutely drive progress.

    OHP isn't terribly good as a shoulder isolation exercise, because of course it is not a shoulder isolation exercise, and that is mostly what people want out of a shoulder exercise these days. It's hard to explain the appeal of a shoulder exercise that depends on a solid posterior chain to most folk.
    Really, the problem was its disqualification as a competitive lift. It ceased to be "sexy", and just became an exercise among others that had little appeal to casual gym goers.

    Is having it literally straight over your head necessary? I find it hard to tuck my chin down while continuing to rep at a decent pace. I feel it throws me off way too much so I end up just looking slightly upward the whole time.

      You move your head back going up, you don't tuck it.

      Go straight up till nose/forehead, push head through, and bar goes back a little and up to lockout.
      Reverse on way down.
      Bar locks out somewhere above my shoulders, not in front of my head.

      Oh really? When you do a set 5 reps of bench press, you do:
      >1 rep at 200lb
      >then 1 rep at 190lb
      >then 1 rep at 180lb
      >then one rep at 170lb
      >then 1 rep at 160lb?
      Then you do 5 sets of these?

      I think he might be saying you start at bar(45lbs) or like 90lbs, then once your form is good go up, or go up slowly as you get better at the movement.
      If someone can do say.. 90lb DB's then sure might want to start at 135 or 165lbs and go up from there.

      Is a 135lbs x 12 OHP good for someone who is 205lbs?

      It's decent. Probably been training for a year or so.
      Impressive would be 165+ for 12.

      what does your current sets and weekly regime look like?

      everything i've learned seems to say you want to hit a muscle group at least twice per week for at least 12 total sets per week, and that increasing sets helps a lot of the time

      so if you're doing 3x10 at 50kg twice per week you can probably add another 3 sets (maybe mix it up with different isolations to work front,mid,rear delts)

    • 4 weeks ago

      That's kinda low anon. I would try and do it early in your program, higher reps, and enough sets.
      do some tricep, and shoulder isolations too.
      Make sure to keep a good brace in your core and glutes too. Helps drive power through.

      If that doesn't work maybe go do some DB pressing later, or as the main variant for a bit.
