Check the video below. Athletes are throwing weights overhead. I don't think we need a crying argument here whether this is a push press, military press or whatever you want to call it.
The arguing is for the internet gurus who sit on their fat ass and don't lift jack shit anyway.
Weakness is NOT good. If you have a weak point, attack it with ferocity. Throwing weight over your head makes you strong from head to toe.
I just interviewed Jim Wendler, who favors the strict press, and we spoke about weak areas and attacking the hell out of them.
Lots of people argue that overhead pressing is bad for you.
It's bad to be weak, period.
It's bad if you never cycle your lifts or movements which leads to overuse injuries.
Check out Matty Wichlinski, throwing heavy weights overhead.
We believe in STRENGTH here, what do YOU believe in?
Lead from the Front.
