    It seems like they recruit the same muscles. My new routine says Push Press, but it looks to me like it's just a standing military press.

    So do Push-Presses like the workout says.

    Thanks.

    Don't be one of the nerds that doesn't do push press b/c it's too much like cheating. Push press made my seated overhead go up.

    I agree. I did no strict overhead pressing, just push presses for 4-5 weeks and got my seated military up 35lbs.

    On the same note, I have to do push presses all the time to make them go up -I think it has to do with re-learning timing, etc.

    I think you should shut the fuck up when you don't know what people are talking about.

    you didn't help me, I knew what I was talking about, everyone else knew what I was talking about, hell even you knew what I was talking about.

    You came in here to say that shit just to come off as a know-it-all that has to correct people on technicalities. You do this in every fucking thread.

    I'd take that from people that have proven they're big or that they know what they're talking about but nobody here has seen jack dick from you.
