If this was anyone else posting this or bragging doing 375 for reps on military we would all laugh and crush him, but bc it's Branch Warren he gets a pass? To me this is silly and basically ridiculous.

I love Branch, but it looks more like an incline press from the angle he is lifting.

Concreter talk about yourself mate. u do not have SITS aka rotator cuff instead you have fucking concrete under those delts!

Behind the neck press is a unnatural biomechanical position for shoulder mechanics. Puts your rotator cuff in a very vulnerable position. Learned from Dr Clayton Hyght like 2 decades ago.

Now you can argue and give me an example such as Levrone or u who STILL does behind the neck press and has healthy shoulder but these are rarities. Does not happen in majority. Best to leave them alone. one can get the job done without them.

Many many greats never did them and had amazing delt's.

Shoulder problems are a plague in weight lifting community and we need to minimise damage and take the right steps so that we don't end up fucked up shoulders.

I agree with above. I myself have been lucky in that I can military barbell press 315 for reps (seated butt back) and have never had a shoulder issue. I can also go behind the neck with as high as 275 but I generally don't like the feeling. I tend to leave behind the neck presses for the 5th set as a light burnout with maybe 165 or something to failure.

I read someplace that any bodybuilder who regularly does or did behind the neck military presses will without questions eventually need surgery. It's the single biggest reason it happens. I used to do them for years, but after talking to an orthopedic and having it explained to me, I quit immediately.

I only do dumbbells anymore for anything overhead. But I get pretty creative in the angles I hit and how I burnout on sets. Does the trick for my goals.

you do not need to do them. drop them.

Do this drop them out of your routine for six months and see what happens to your delts.

do they grow - dont put them back
do they stay same - dont put them back
do they get smaller - put them back in.

Option 3 will NOT happen u will see...
I promise you.

Make sure u are doing variations of side laterals of all sorts and Go HEAVY like as if it was squats.

This why it's hard to criticize the man. I would never advise anyone to train the way he did; but he sits in a very elite category of men.

I'd love to see this 315 for reps as well. Seems like a pointless post to somehow bring up his 315 for reps...useless post all around .

what would be people's thoughts on him and doing it that way,for what reasons,

also wasn't Poliquin who advocated the behind the neck shoulder press??

what about if you don't feel pain or anything in rotator cuff whilst doing it? assuming very goods form?

When I was young and strong, I use to do 365 lbs (for I think 6 reps) behind the neck, I think I was in my earlier 20s. I remember the rack bars were like a foot apart so you needed someone holding the other side so it wouldn't flip. I miss those days being strong a shit, when everything would go up.

I’ve never done behind the neck because of the people who say this. Don’t want to take the risk just in case. Don’t really have shoulder issues luckily.
