Honestly, and I hate to say this because it feels like an excuse, but I'm not an overhead presser. Even at my healthiest it hurts like hell. I had lots of shoulder issues when I was younger and it causes major discomfort if I try to overhead press even with relatively lighter weights. I can do it with dumbells because I don't have to go in front of or behind my head, but I don't have dumbells at home.

I have realized though that I need to really focus more on my shoulders, as I'm sure that my weak shoulders are holding back my bench press. Once they start to work semi-properly again I'll be giving them a lot of my time.
