      I like seated dumbell OHP. I don't do it that much, but last time I did it, my working weight was 50lb dumbells for 14 reps. I don't know of that's good or not.

            I don't train barbell ohp anymore, but I do 185 on log press for reps. I can probably get around 200 as a 1rm on a barbell from the pins since I've done 185 strict on a log from the floor. Before I got my log it was around 160-170 for reps on barbell

    I have added more weight to fricking nordic curls than OHP over the last few months, why the frick does this shit never go up

      >why the frick does this shit never go up
      probably because it's a true test of your peak strength level and technique. if you try it during a day where you're tired or hungry then the lift suffers as well. it's simply not sustainable for hypertrophy unless you dedicate all your life to lifting

      This lift is the ultimate filter for gymcels

      >ultimate filter for gymcels
      what is the practical benefit of it? it doesn't even lead to that much hypertrophy if I understand correctly

    dude are you fricking moronic?
    a 5lb weight increase on this lift is the same as adding 20-40lbs on your max squat or deadlift untrained.
    You need to quite literally buy .25lb/.5lb/1lb weights if you're going to actually increase OHP. Because guaranteed you're going to jump the gun one day and seriously injure yourself.
    2pl8 OHP, it took two years longer to reach this than it did 3pl8 bench or 4+ on squat/dead.
    It was slow, it was painful, but it was doable.

      >you need to quite literally buy .25lb/.5lb/1lb weights if you're going to actually increase OHP
      this could very well be the issue. I usually go for 10 reps with 20kilos on the bar, then I add 5 kilos and try again. These 25 kilos are quite difficult to get to 10 reps with.
      I must confess that I only do this weight as a warmup to chest, triceps & shoulder workout, and on a typical OHP day I do the following lifts:
      cable external rotation + 2 warmup sets per shoulder
      OHP 4x10
      bench press 6x10
      chest flies 5x10
      dips 4x8
      side lat raises 4x12

        For the record I stopped doing OHP almost entirely upon reaching 2pl8 for reps.
        I just maintained physique, if you're going to go for it, do it as your primary for the day lift. Work as I told you in small increment increases, continue workout.
        If you start feeling sore during your workout, stop rotator cuff related exercises entirely.
        The OHP is the main lift you're wanting to increase and any additional damage is not helping you anymore.
        Once you reach your goal OHP stop increasing and working on maintaining, while fledging out your other lifts for the day.
        Remember that 2pl8 OHP is top percentile, unless you utterly are trying to prove something. It is utterly silly to continue lifting it.
        You're already stronger than 99% of men on the planet. Possibly 99.9%

        Do less reps with higher weight, make it a different challenge.

        Any that hit those areas, there are no mandatory exercises.

    When I stall on OHP I usually deload and then really focus on accessories for a few weeks. Last time I hit weighted dips, seated DB press and incline press pretty hard and blasted through the weight I had been stuck at when I tried it again

      If adding 10lbs feels like a lot you aren't going high enough in reps before progressing. You're also probably trying to 1rm your 3rm, bad idea. You should hit a 3rm when you aren't feeling it.

        There's another move to train that.
        It's like a spear thrust where you put weights on one side of the barbell, and put the empty end on a corner of a room.
        Grab the barbell from the tip, and do straight punches, like picrel.

          Even if it doesn't look like it your elbow is below your shoulder and it extends to parallel.

          Chest/upper chest, shoulders, triceps, and abs are the name of the game since strong legs help but it's more technique and speed not leg torque whereas shoulder torque is how to make it really solid.

        but don't load it with weight, it's not meant to be a heavy lift. Anyways a heavy jab is more about timing than speed. GGG and Waldimir had heavy but not super fast jabs, but they knew when to throw it.

          Im a fan of speed reps at relatively high weight for power production. But yeah this landmine thing seems like a winner I'm not fricking buying an elbow joint though that's 40 dollars gone and for what?

            I suggested using a corner of the room, you have a room, don't you?
            A corner of a bolted-to-the-ground power rack also works.

              What would make those pretty sick would actually be a squat rack mounted landmine at mid height. I might even get another barbell just for that honestly, if there's one with a clamp you could make your own hammer strength bench.

    Try and flare your ribcage forward and out by bracing your lower abs sll the way to your neck. Also you're probably putting your hands way too close together to use front and mid delts.

    Also do a palm grip aka thumb under, and squeeze your palms together and tighten your elbows and shoulders.

      Yeah until I started doing sitting bb ohp and leaning forward, squeezing my shoulders together, thumb over, and driving with my elbows and not going all the way down I wasn't getting as much gains. Frick counting reps you're gonna frick your shit up hitting full rom and really pushing for reps.

    These are for adjusting old deep dish plates and would probably work.

    It’s an old man lift that you come back to when you are more developed. Working on it was never something that I felt ever did much. I don’t think doing high reps is a good idea either.

    You need powerful upper body stability in your back, chest etc to do heavy weight OHP. This is going to sound unusual but I think heavy pullovers really help, that and heavy dips help the most for OHP in my experience
