Dumbbell overhead press with holding isometrics at the end (pfffhtttttttt). Positively grueling. Did a few light sets of these as a warmup before 5 sets of heavy-ish (5-8 rep range) barbell clean and presses.
Shoulders are highly mobile joints, so ya gotta take care with them. I like to press with my 'bows out in front of my body a little bit as it allows your arms to follow a more natural path as you raise them over your head. I also don't go past 90 degrees as the additional stretch you place on the muscle isn't worth the increased strain you exert on the joint when going lower. And since BB clean and presses are an explosive movement, I tried to keep the tempo on the DB OHPs nice and slow. Switch up your pressing with heavy dumbbell and barbell variations and make sure to use extra good form when working your shoulders. Throw in some side lateral and rear raises to make sure you hit all three heads of the shouldies, and you'll be well on your way to a nice, healthy launching-off point for your arms. 😃
Who said it have to be pretty, if you just get it done. I see all of this "pretty instagram posing", well, not in my yard... at least not while i work out . #fuglyface for sure, but hey, as long as im happy 😏
