    Is 1 enough? i usually switch up one pressing move each time seated military/standing/push/DB. But it just feels like it's not enough and my shoulders are lagging. Should i add another pressing movement to the shoulder routine or would that be too much?

    sure. do regular shoulder presses and then maybe some push presses afterwards so you can cheat a little with some leg momentum and finish your shoulders off.

    I do standing military and that's it, and if needed I'll push press until I hit the number of reps I want to or I'll superset it with the shoulder press machine and use the vertical handles while facing the back support.

    I rotate between seated DB, seated BB, standing BB, and throw in push presses every so often. Never more than 1 of those per workout.

    i really like doing heavy push presses. After that i go alitte light and do very strict overhead presses with ligher weights and aim for about 15 reps.
