As I had said earlier, I was told to raise the barbell off the chest & ahead & then press it overhead & back, which I realize was wrong.
If I'm pressing straight up & down, then is it okay to tilt the head backwards to let the bar pass?
Here the video again:
I am using a shoulder width grip, there is one problem that I has occurred, is that when the barbell comes down I get cramp(well, more like an intense pump) in my lower bicep, right next to the elbow, in the video above it's the right lower bicep, but it has happened in my left one also, I subsequently widened the grip by an inch & helped reduce it, but not completely. This happens to me with barbells, mostly & in the past I widened my grip till comfortable. Today, the lower bicep just feels really sore, like I did a bicep workout, except for only this localized part & this is the same that has happened in the past. Again no pain, just discomfort, happens with close grip & even with just the bar, even though the shoulders & triceps are fine, also does not affect performance, except with higher loads it pumps even more(did not happen yesterday, since I did not work to a max).
Shhh….my common sense is tingling.
