Overhead Press Pain: The FIX You’re Missing

4 Exercises That Alleviate Shoulder Pain FAST! If you’ve got overhead press pain, you’ve got to try these three fixes to help loosen up your arms and take stress off the shoulders. Overhead pressing can be troublesome because it requires a lot of shoulder mobility to ensure solid technique. Without it, you can expect your low back to arch, your shoulder to ache, and your weights to be small. But good news! I’ve got three movements that will loosen up your shoulders and help you with any pain while overhead pressing. Check out the video and post below to learn about it.

Ribs coming backward
