So many people spend so much time doing OHP. I mean, 5/3/1 puts it as being just as important as sq/bp/dl. While having healthy and strong shoulders does obviously contribute to a strong bench, I am just hesitant to think that it is worth it.
In otherwords, as a POWERLIFTER (IE: all i care about are sq/bp/dl numbers) is doing highly stressful OHP workouts really the best use of my recuperative abilities?
Do you think that in fact OHP is an efficient use of time/recuperative abilities to increase bench?
PS: Now don’t get me wrong, I know SOME shoulder work is useful. I personally have made good progress by adding in a bit of OHP work because of my shoulder weakness.
