I will add the push press as an assistance lift.
I definitely work the different planes of motion and always incorporate a push and a pull movement.
Once again lots of great feedback keep them coming.
Same here. stuff that I've gotten from a friend who's a monster presser.
push press. lots
overhead supports and hold. think big.
speed presses against light bands
incline bench, DB bench
one metric shit-ton of upper back work, face pulls, DB rows, etc. FWIW, i've found no correlation between my pullup numbers and my overhead, but db and bb rows have really helped.
