SHOULD you be overhead pressing? We at MSP Fitness would argue that’s not the question. The question is HOW you ought to press.

A great way to foster longterm shoulder health and function (let alone strength) is to press bars, dumbbells, kettlebells, etc. There’s the problem though… not everyone’s shoulder mobility allows them to press with the rest. In this video we’ll show you an assessment to self determine your press readiness, along with showcasing a few strict press alternatives for those who lack the shoulder flexion chops. ENJOY!

MSP “LIVE” is a biweekly recording by MSP Fitness originally airing on Facebook. If you have questions about one of the episodes or a question for a future episode, reach out to

For more information on pressing, including a separate video we shot on the most common errors performed while pressing look no further. Similarly, if you’ve got no idea how to press or any notion of what a barbell press is, we’ve got a video on that too.
