I find it interesting that the same type of programming is recommended for the bench and for the overhead press. While I haven't had any huge shoulder problems or surgries for my shoulders I did find that a lot of overhead press training (2-3x per week) really put a hurting on my shoulders while I've done the same for bench and not had the same problems. Though on the same token I was also benching heavy and overhead pressing so perhaps that was the problem at the time. I've never just done overhead pressing and not some type of horizontal pressing motion also.
