This actually makes sense if someone doen't feel confortable going low and wants an awesome tricep movement, similiar to board presses or doing overhead presses in the upper ROM. This would be super effective if you load it up and keep the reps low as the triceps usually respond well to lower reps and heavy loads.

Personally, I don't have shoulder issues so I use it as a chest and triceps movement and go super low.
