Are you talking as far as an overhead pin press or just standard standing OHP? I wouldn't advise using the smith really for anything due to the fixed bar path, moose referred to. Just learn how to clean, easier said then done, but still it'll benefit you in the long run and you won't need a rack.Originally Posted by cainb96

Neither overhead pin press or just standard standing OHP. Cage press is when you push the bar over ahead against the racks columns. The path is fixed and you slightly lean into it with a staggered stance.

Ah never heard of it before. What would be the reason for doing something along those lines as opposed to a jammer press.Originally Posted by cainb96

It just takes the stability aspect out of the equation.

It also hits the traps some if I recall correctly. Some interesting ways to do exercises differently.

You don't necessarily need to lean in, any abduction movement involving both the gh and scapulothoracic joint (beyond 90 degrees of pure gh abduction) will involve the upper and lower trap fibers. It comes as a by product of force coupling to create scapulohumeral rhythm.

Yes, but you are supposed to when performing cage presses.

Supposed to what? Activate your traps? Regardless of what your doing the trap upper and lower fibers will be active or the scap won't move and you will not be able to abduct past 90 degrees.Originally Posted by breezy11

I was just saying that you should lean in at the top of the movement...I agree with you.
