Push Press Alternative

I’m planning on starting meltdown training next week but I’ve had problems with my left shoulder for some time now, and any overhead barbell pressing tends to leave me in pain. Dumbell overhead pressing for some reason is ok though. I was hoping someone who had done meltdown training in the past could give me a good alternative for the push press on day 2 of the workout.

I’ve never done a push press before so I’m willing to give it a shot but I’d like to have a backup exercise ready in case I’m unable to do so without pain.

You probably don’t have much choice but omit overhead pressing. Try Incline with elbow tucked in with neutral grips (palms facing each other) and push away from your face with DBs.
