    I believe Timber does them. I used to do them when I was more involved in martial arts stuff but have not done them in years. I'd rather stick with OHP or DB-press.

    not a bad idea to work them in for stability especially.

    that being said, I usually stick with standing overhead press or push presses

    I have occasionally done timed handstands at the end of my abdominal workouts. Shits good for shoulder stability and body awareness

    I can do them, But they I shoulder press way more than I weigh. I prefer to shoulder press so I can go heavier.
