    Push Presses: health related

    I have a question about push presses. Today as usual, I did my normal workout and toped it off with some push presses. I first repped 135 a few times and then put on 185, my goal w/ the 185 was to only push it up once and hold it up as long as I can. I had it for about 15-20 seconds.

    My question is it safe on the joints and shoulders to be holding weight like that cos I only weight about 175. Should I worry about it? Thanks

    I don't see why it should be an issue. There are people your size hoisting 300+ pounds over their head with a much wider grip in a ballistic manner when snatching.
    The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...
