Military presses are ok once in a while, but with all the bench pressing, they'll increase the liklihood of shoulder problems.

I saw two upper days in a row that had some type of military press. I know Westside hardly does any, and Louie stated that the ones that do a lot of them, didn't see any benefit.

So given the premise that you're always doing speed work benching, then another maximal press on ME bench day, adding in even more overhead presses just increases the amount of work your anterior delts endure.

But if he's only rotating them once every so often, probably not a big deal. It's hard to tell because I cannot tell what the hell he's doing in here half the time!

Maybe this will clear things up some.

I think people want to use some westside methods but they are not really trying to be powerlifters.

With the mix that I've seen here, reading back through..I just see some heavy oh pressing followed by lighter benching or vice versa. I don't see anything that would increase any injury likelihood from what I can tell...but I would recommend not doing all straight bar pressing. I'm not seeing much dumbell work. To much straight bar work can take it's toll and that may be the origin of the "military pressing" thing but I think it's not really an oh pressing thing as much as it is too much straight bar work. I don't really know about strict westside protocols, though

As far as the oh pressing I do mean in general. OH pressing is not for everyone. But hell, neither is benching.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.
