      That's actually a good name for it "standing bench press".

      >press
      they barely press the weight though. most of it is bouncing it with their hips and dropping under it

            Retard. Spinal flexion and extension are natural movements of the spine, you are literally meant to be able to get into this position. As long as you're braced and don't have excessive lowerback rounding you should be fine. Your spine can deal with compressive forces just fine.

              Yes, but not under heavy load in an unstable position like this.

              >As long as you're braced and don't have excessive lowerback rounding you should be fine.
              Are you blind? Are we looking at the same pictures here? The lower back is hyperextended to the highest degree possible.

                They're braced, it's not unstable. And they worked up to a heavy load. They did proper load management.

              Ya you are right, the spine loves to be compressed when at 90 degree angle. I pray for your discs

                Don't worry about him. He'd have to lift heavy for his discs to be in danger.

                It wouldn't be compression at that angle, it would be a shearing force... Which would actually just be worse, but get it right.

                You dumbfuck, you can’t brace and create intra abdominal pressure with this spine position

              I hope you are trolling. Otherwise stop lifting weights immediately and first learn things about spinal health before you touch a barbell again

      Just don't call it an OHP. This fallback bullshit was the reason the press was removed from the Olympics in the early 70s.

        no, the reason was that they had a "no excessive layback" rule which soviet judges abused to redlight western lifters
        the easier solution would be to remove this rule

          Because with such a ridiculous layback (like shown above with ole Chase) it's no longer a shoulder press.

            nooooooooo... you can't just press the weight overhead, you have to "shoulder press" it!

      I would break it down to 2 main things.

      1. It's a lift a training the shoulders and triceps, while using abdominal and glute bracing, leaning back starts to ruin that goal. I guess you could make an argument that leaning back to engage some of your chest makes it "better" because more muscles getting work = more better. But there are superior exercises if that is your goal. And honestly if you're leaning back that much to get the weight up, you're just not strong enough.

      2. The spirit of the exercise, I'll admit this is maybe a larping argument but I just think it looks like shit. It's kind of like how powersharters stick to the "uh technically my retarded arch and 2mm ROM is within the rules." Okay fine, but if you were just strong enough in the required areas for the lift you would need all that "technique" to get it done. Sure some slight leaning is expected on max effort but if your eye line is now at the ceiling you have fucked up.

        Let's be honest, the spirit of the exercise is reason enough. It's an overhead press, not an overchest press. When we imagine the platonic form of the overhead press it does not involve this kind of ridiculous arch.

          it's literally a fucking standing incline bench you retard. there is no "spirit" it's just shit and dangerous, especially for fat untrained female.

            its not even an incline bench because you have to press the whole thing on an incline bench and can't bounce than drop under the bar a foot

      you use momentum to put speed on the bar instead of using ur muscles.
      1/ unrack the bar
      2/ brace ur self and lay back, creating 6"+ of separation
      3/ dive bomb the bar into ur chest
      4/ catch the bounce and squeeze through with ur glutes
