Shoulder presses


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Shoulder presses within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: I have been practicing hand stand push ups lately and I feel like its lifting 90% of my body weight. Surely I dont need to use weights to make increases in shoulder size and strength right? Handstand presses should be good enough?

    Re: Shoulder presses

    you can really improve doing those yes. a lot of martial artists use body weight exercises

    however to take shit to the next level with size and strength you should also utilize weight and resistance training

    You can only go so far with body weight exercises. If you want to go to the next level you need to lift heavy weights.

    No. Google images of the broadest / widest looking guys then ask yourself (or them if you can get an answer) 'did you get that wide from doing hand stand press ups?'. You know they will say no don't you.

    Those who are good at these will always be lighter guys. Only very rarely do you ever see any over 200lbs. I'm 289 right now (yesterday) - I think I'll pass ha ha

    I love bodyweight exercises because they are often forgotten but very beneficial. Push ups and pull ups are great examples. I would always include weight training though.

    I would also add in some isolation work like side lateral raises. If you don't have access to a gym, you could hold onto bags or rice or something like that for weights.
