    What happened to the overhead press in PBF?

    Primal Fuel
    I KNOW it was there. I wouldn't have been doing this every LHT workout since March if it weren't. I know I didn't just pull it out of my rump.

    So, I was ready to progress in this exercise, thought I'd consult Mark's online book to make sure I was doing things properly, and it's not there? Does anyone know what's going on?

    Two possibilities: It was an oversight and left off by mistake or it was deleted because it is really tough on the shoulders. I do them, but its one exercise I never go heavy on. The older I get, the more careful of my shoulders I get...

    I just attempted checking out one of the OP videos to make sure my form was correct. Apparently the videos are set to 'private' on youtube now. Odd. I'd like to know what the deal is with this. (shrug)

    Definitely tough on the shoulders. I annoyed my rotator cuff a while back by doing both the PBF progression and heavy military presses as part of my weekly routine. My suspicion is with Jersey's...

    @BarbieGirl - Here is a good video on proper execution of the press. In case your form may be causing some shoulder issues...

    Here's an article with a video tutorial that I did about handstand push-ups and progressions. Hope it helps!

    Thanks for all the replies. While they're not easy, I certainly like them. Okay, I don't necessarily like them, but I like what they do for me. Thanks for giving me the progression, mightstone2k. And thanks for the video tutorial, Al_K.

    how "heavy" were you doing them? what rep range? unless you're training for some sort of competition, i would avoid any and all low-rep shoulder presses.
