Then there's this article I found this morning on overhead pressing.

Top Five Reasons Overhead Pressing Sucks | DeanSomerset.com
Bench is the ultimate draw for the lazy athlete. They can lay down, have someone hand them a bar, and if it's too heavy they can bounce and have their friends curl and row it up for them.

Regarding the article...

Gackle, gackle, gackles, gurgle...OHP is bad! Blech, blech, sputter. It's not the bench overkill causing the problem, or lack of heavy back work. Gackle, gackle, gackles, gurgle.
