Anyone do standing shoulder press with a trap bar? I have been getting back pain doing them with barbells and while behind the neck doesnt hurt my back they are just scary.

That seems really awkward to get into position. Why not DB's?

More ROM? DBs are prob a better bet.

Yeah it just seems awkward. most trap bars are short so you'd have to rest the ends on the rack and somehow maneuver inside it. DB's you can just clean overhead, but the weight is limited which is what I assume is part of the problem. Maybe a cambered bar? I've used a swiss bar for OHP which is alright but still pretty awkward.

Have any of you guys ever dealt with exertion headaches? For the past week or so, I could be in the middle of a set (of any lift) and my head will just explode with a horrific headache and I have to abandon my session. I did some searching and found out that this is a pretty common thing, but no real info on how to get rid of them short of not lifting for a while (which is less than optimal). Thoughts/suggestions?

I get a screwed back like once every month doing military press with a barbell (not even really heavy, like 110 lbs), I have no clue why, gym trainer brah said technic looked ok. I stopped doing it for a month now and will only go back doing it with dumbbells.

Sounds like something I would go to a doctor for.

I've got an appointment made, but was hoping there was something I could do in the meantime to stop this.

Are you breathing normally during the lift? I see a lot of people who just have fucked up breathing when they lift.

fwiw I get headaches after leg day, every single time. Nothing during, only after.

I think so? I've been lifting off and on for 5 years, have been on my current program (phat) for several months and this has never once happened to me. It only happens when I've dropped the weight down and am really focusing on contracting the muscles involved in whatever movement I am doing. Perhaps, as a result of that concentration I am neglecting my breathing.

It does weird things to the lumbar spine with shearing loads. I'm pretty sure my form is on point too. I guess I will just stick to seated presses. I got up to 175 for reps with those

yup, happens to me when i have a sinus infection. The worst is when im getting them and i orgasm the pressure to my head makes me feel like im going to die.

Had my first setback on Friday. Reps actually moved down on bench press instead of staying the same or increasing. I'm blaming having too many beers the night before while watching NCAA, but also have committed to an increase in both calories and protein intake, as well as getting hydrated as fuck.

O god, allergies, don't remind me, the pollen culo blast is already beginning to ream.

There's a guy at my gym who does these. Sets up the trap bar in one of the squat stands. He'll do some other unconventional stuff like safety bar squats with the bar straddling his face to be more like a front squat. He squatted 617 at 198 with just knee sleeves so it's not like he's weak and a weirdo.
