    shoulder press

    I haven't done behind the neck shoulder press for yrs, is that exercise to risky. I read alot of magazines where alot of pros stay away from that exercise

    I wouldn't do behind the neck. I press from the front.

    I don't. Stopped a while back. Shoulders are better for it.

    BNOHP is one of those movements you start young and never stop. I've been doing them for almost 40 years. If you haven't been incorporating them into your workout or quit them for a several months I advise not going back to pressing behind your neck.

    Re: shoulder press

    During my early days in the weight room, in high school for sports, we didn't know any better and I always pressed behind neck.....up until I torque my shoulder in college pressing off the seated shoulder press stand........never did them again......I get much more out of front presses.......

    Re: shoulder press

    Front press for me. I think they helped me get my bench numbers up.
    traps are the new abs.

    Re: shoulder press

    the only time I'll do behind is on the smith machine while sitting on a bench. Don't wanna risk losing my balance or ****ing up my back

    Re: shoulder press

    I've done them since my early 20's. I'm in my late 40's now and I was fortunate enough never to have any issues. One of my favorite shoulder routines was behind the neck press, sitting dumbell press, and dumbell laterals. Sometimes super setted. If you're NOT using the smith and your using a press chair then you really should have a spotter.

    Re: shoulder press

    I still do them and I'm 49 yrs old. I just dont go crazy heavy. I have a bad left delt from a motorcycle accident, and dumbbell side and front laterals kill me. Anything overhead and I'm GTG.

    Standing overhead strict barbell press hands down. I got strong as hell from this.

    Re: shoulder press

    IMO, if you go heavy it can be risky. If you keep the weight light and good form you should be fine. Personally, I don't do them. I have shoulder issues and for me even going light causes issues.

    Re: shoulder press

    I've been doing them since my 20's and still do.
    On the smith machine only though. You get that
    Thickness in your shoulders from them.
    I start with rear shoulder press then I hit the fronts.
    I'd say go ahead and do them but do it on the smith
    And very light for a while until your shoulders loosen
    Up and get used to them. Then hit it hard.
