    Will Overhead Press only fuk up your traps?

    It's well known that too much bench will mess up your shoulders because the opposite side is weak.

    I've been doing overhead press only for a while because gym got coronaed. My neck/traps have been hurting, is this something similar to the bench/shoulder problem?

    I think it's more likely you're sitting at a computer more with bad posture causing pain. Do you think this may be it? I doubt overhead pressing a lot will cause neck/trap pain from a muscle imbalance. It could if your form was bad and you were constantly straining your muscles.

    Its far more likely even a professional athlete is doing the exercise (BP or OHP) incorrectly than the exercise is inherently flawed.

    Common mistakes: Are you bringing the bar down to the right position in front of the shoulders. Are you finishing near the back crown of the head. Are you pulling your head thru your shoulders as you push up. Elbow path. Are you keeping your scapula tight while allowing the correct type of motion and not the wrong kind of motion.

    Cheap solution, go get a $35 groupon for a back massage, tell the person to go hard into your traps. More expensive, get a $100 certified sports massage to do the same thing. Go in prepared for pain and work, you'll feel better after. I personally don't like foam rolling or lacross balling my back but people do it.

    And regarding Heisman's post, get your posture check and get some mobility exercises.
