I was attentioned at the gym today by a "gym bro" that doing shoulder presses with the barbell at a total of 50kg barbell + weigths is dangerous and nobody should do it. I am doing 5x5 reps and i find the 50 kg weigth comfortable. Should i worry about something ? Is it too exagerated to do shoulder press with 50 kg?
The barbell overhead press used to be one of the lifts contested in Olympic Weightlifting, and competitors pressed more than 200kg overhead without any incidence of injury. (The press was later removed from Olympic Weightlifting only because it was deemed too difficult to judge. And maybe because the Soviets were too good at it.)
I would advise you to just dismiss the Gym Bro by saying, "Yeah, thanks. I'll keep that in mind", and then go right back to pressing.
