    Strict Press

    Hi, I injured my rotator cuff a couple of months ago (not lifting weights) and have just been building shoulder strength back up while it recovers. Another 10kg and I'll be back at my full strength, but I just wanted to check I wasn't doing anything wrong with my press that could cause a re-injury of the shoulder!

    I found out my bench form had been bad for a while (Not pinning shoulders back) and this injury has forced me to improve my bench form, which has actually made my bench stronger.

    Is there anything i should be doing differently here? Thanks

    I can't find anything wrong with that

    I like a little bit wider hand placement and a thumbless grip. That's more personal preference though

    Put up a video of your bench form
    I post most of my lifting stuff on my Instagram

    Ok man not gonna lie here, for me this is a very impressive lift. Believe me, it is VERY rare to find someone repping standing strict military presses with more than their bodyweight. At least I never have seen that in person. You should be very close to a double bodyweight bench with that military press.

    From the video I can't tell if you are doing something that can hurt your shoulder, the technique seems spot on (pushing your head in at the lockout etc...). But logic says that it's very hard to rep out bodyweight military presses with a hurt rotator cuff. Hell, some people can't even bench the bar with a hurt rotator cuff. Regardless, play on the safe side for now.

    Lol wut. This is not a lot of carryover for a lot of people. I can strict press like 250lbs at 200ish bw but my bench is only 330. It differs for everyone.

    I was doing 90kg x 5 before my injury and one rep maxed at 102.5kg. Hopefully be back there in a few weeks.

    Should be getting 120kg x 10 on bench next week which puts my 1RM between 150-160 i think. 155 is double bodyweight (and also the british record U23 for under 83kg apparently!)

    After my injury it hurt to bench even 50kg but i have steadily increased that over the past few months, not wanting lift heavy and risk injury so have been sticking to high reps.
    Overhead press is near enough pain free now but I start to feel it on my last few reps, which is why i stopped short in this video.

    To the first reply, I will try get a video of my bench form next week but the person who usually takes the videos usually spots me, it will be hard to do both and I don't trust the random people in the gym to spot me properly! (LET ME BENCH IT ON MY OWN I DON'T NEED YOU TO CURL THE WEIGHT FOR ME).
    My bench grip is near enough the same width as my overhead press.

    Maybe you don't train bench press enough (I see you train strongman from your signature). I guarantee you can bench press more if you take the time to make your technique better.

    Benching is way harder on the shoulders and rotator cuff than overhead pressing. Why is it that so few people understand this?

    Suppose it's something most people don't think about until it's too late!
