    Just learned military press last night and was told to bring the bar to chin level or just below. It works out to greater than 90 degrees.

    Around chin level, I also don't lock it out fully, since thats mostly triceps.

    saw a dood in the gym yesterday, doing 80lb db presses. i was impressed watching him set them up to shoulder press.
    then he did them.

    arms didnt even reach 90degrees.

    i guess he doesthe excercise more for the motion of getting the weight up from the floor to starting position, b/c it cant be for the press movement.
