  • Replacing overhead press in Powerbuilding

    Hello,

    I am due to run Powerbuilding 1 again shortly, but am still experiencing some bicep/upper arm pain when pressing heavy weights overhead.

    Would you recommend changing pressing exercises to limit weight (e.g. increasing rep requirements, myoreps or 3-0-3), or changing pressing completely to a different bench variation, as benching gives me no pain?

    Or, does it not really matter? My goals are to get stronger, and am currently cutting weight because I'm too fat.

    Thanks

    Either of these can be good options if you're aiming to improve the pain symptoms with pressing. Since you're presumably interested in being able to press overhead without symptoms, I'd probably opt for something like higher-rep pressing, perhaps with an eccentric tempo component, and/or unilateral work (e.g., DB press, landmine press, iso-lateral machine press, etc.).
