  • Alternatives to Overhead Press/ Pull-Ups

    At the moment I don't really have the facility to do pull-ups at my house, and overhead presses confuse and frighten me! :P

    Any alternative exercises I can do that work the same muscle groups?

    in all seriousness use low weight till you feel comfortable

    that is the best i got. I just bought a pull up stand to address just ths issue

      I tried to do a headstand pushup today but couldnt get my legs up. I think I was afraid of toppling over.

      I am an exercise idiot. haha

                I should probably mention the reason I havent watched videos on correct form etc is because i dont own a computer and all streaming media (a la youtube) is blocked on work computers.

                however, i need to find a bit of time to sit down at the boyfriends and watch them. thank you!
