The overhead press is one of the most common movements found in daily activities. Try loading your suitcase into an overhead compartment on a plane or putting that bag of protein powder on the top shelf without completing an overhead press with one or both arms. At times you need to add a push press for that extra oomph or a squat with rotation. These movements function well with de-conditioned clients using light weights or with more experienced athletes capable of lifting heavier weights. Either way, training overhead progressions and variations are useful for building strength in athletes and just about every other individual in existence.
