    I've always thought overhead = military whether seated or standing.

    What about military press versus behind the neck press?

    good god, does it matter? is it holding back your progress? just lift, who cares about the name

    While steve's No-Xplode was likely tainted and expired, he does have a point.
    Hell I don't know if what I'm doing is romanians or stiff legged dl's but it really just comes down to how I call it and I'm consistent with the performance.

    I know....I do it standing. Sitting feels awkward to me.

    But I was just wondering.:hsd:

    I've recorded the exercise as either military or overhead. Its the same thing to me. Just means standing and to the front.
    As for variations, I'll write down if its seated press, behind neck or if its seated behind neck.
