    it's an article about a guy's personal experience so it's pretty much impossible to disagree with it.

    strong shoulders are very important especially in raw benching. you dont need to worry about anything specific make sure you are doing an equal amount of overhead, incline, flat, decline, etc. also i have no idea why you are so piss weak at this stuff

    in conclusion.... If i train strictly overhead, i will add 94 lbs to my bench...

    Or..

    I need to find that doctor that tweaked his shoulder..so that he can tweak mine too. (and i will be stronger, faster, leaner, and better in bed)

    overhead work also involves a great deal of triceps, usually when you are overhead pressing with such a narrow grip the triceps take the bulk of the load after the bar passes your head, and obviously, tricep strength is clutch with elbows-tucked benching

    .

    Be less technical and just do it more often...as long as your form is at check and you are actually doing the lifts I dont see why you wouldnt be improving.

    Consistency and staying injury free are the keys!! Keep hammering it and be patient, it will come!! Also, anytime you diet or lose weight, your bench is the first to get weaker.

    It happens to me and I've always assumed it's because it's a larger muscle group and it takes more muscle effort/energy to do. When you eat less food, it cuts your energy, and causes the bigger muscle groups to take a hit. :dunno:

    I also notice a drop in my back exercises, but not as much.

    Yes standing overhead presses are good they help develop:

    Shoulders
    Triceps
    Core
    Explosiveness
