Going over head. Awkward. Difficult. Worth it. Shoulder press, push press, and jerks challenge the mobility, stability, and strength of the shoulder and neck, exposing and helping to correct weaknesses in those areas. Overhead pressing requires a lot of focused tension throughout your core, lest you dump the weight forward or collapse into your spine. Set your sights on 75% of your body weight.
