    Try not to lean back as much if you prefer not to use erectors but personally I like that feeling of being a spring

        Lower back pain from OHP?
        Stop being clowns that over arch into a standing incline bench. This is why I never take online OHP numbers serious.

        Don't do this, way too easy to thrust into over-extension. Pause and bounce into your lat stretch reflex each rep before driving. Squeeze your ass/hip flexors or whatever, tighten core, lean back slightly with thorasic extension, drive and get under the bar.

          this, the lift offers extremely difficult and slow progression if a strict form is applied, some of these gays' numbers will drop by 1/3 if someone were to correct their movement

          yup second time I did it with pensioner weights on the dumbbels and feeling the lower back in a concerning way (snapped my shit up years ago so I'm wary)
          looks like I'll have to look up exactly what safe form is for this, that 30 second fitness video didn't show anything from the side iirc

          3 reps. don't bother going for a 1rm just for 1pl8 as that weight is too low to be worth the deload after.

    The only thing that happens when I OHP is my shoulders start hurting for weeks, and I develop lower back pain. I also once passed out and dropped the weight on my fucking head doing 5x5, woke up crushed in to a broken wall heater with 65 kg's over my neck and back and a nasty wound on my head lol... And I've tried every technique in the book for over 10 years...
    Lateral raises give better gains anyway. Fuck the OHP.

    How heavy are you lifting? Because when I press I feel no erector strain, that being said I have a relatively weak press(170lbs @ 180lbs)

    Don't do 1rm's much. Probably around 115 or 125lbs right now. If you brace you shouldn't have low back pain.

      You gotta do this program I found on here yesterday. I’ll paste it for you.

      Retarded IST OHP program:
      -do 5 reps with empty barbell
      -add 10 lbs and repeat until you fail
      -repeat the whole process with 4, 3, 2, then 1 rep.

    Bros. Fit noob here. Been working out for a couple months only. Making gains losing weight. Eating well etc.
    I had two back operations around 10 years ago. Surgeon said it was the worst disc protrusion he had ever seen in 40 years. Had one microdiscectomy then that blew out so had to have a second a month later. He said for the rest of my life it’ll be like driving around with one bald tyre.
    What gym machines or exercises should I avoid?
    Will I ever be able to do squats or DL?
    I already notice back compression when I do the seated OHP machine thing.
    Thanks

      Honestly, I'd just start with very light weight and see if you can take it. You'll know if it's too much and if it is drop it. You've healed quite a bit in that time. Take it slow and take collagen pills.

    I am a new lifter and I have been tracking my progress. I am wondering if I am progressing to quickly and if it will lead me to snap city.

    40kg 5x5
    45kg5x5
    50kg 5x8 (Felt extra pumped this day)

    These are with pretty strict form and going at this rate I will have gone from 40kg to 60kg in the span of about 2 months. Thoughts?
