    I can rep 185 but I dont know about 2 plates. I doubt it.

    I have shoulders tomorrow. Maybe I will try it out and let you guys know.

    Speaking of military press, what's the exercise called where you lower the bar behind your head instead of in front?

    more importantly, are those bad for your shoulders or lower back or anything? i'd thought someone here posted they were bad for some reason, so just need clarification

    btw my form when i do them is nowhere near the pictures posted above. my elbows are wayyy out, basically in a wide-grip chin-up position on the bar. talk to me

    edit: after looking at the pics again that's about how wide my arms are apart at the top of the movement, but since i go behind the head the elbows are sideways instead of facing outwardly in front

    Was reading an article by Bill Starr in which he states he would prefer a football palyer who can military press 250lbs over someone who can bench 400lbs. He goes on to say...
    "I can assure you that the player who can handle a big overhead press will win any confrontation on the playing field with a big bencher."
    He goes on to say...
    "When I mentioned that overhead strength converts to all sports actiites, that included other exercises in the weight room. The 250lb presser will be able to lie on a bench and use at least 100lbs over his best military press. Yet it doesn't work the other way around. The 400lb bencher won't be able to overhead press 100lbs less than that. Not even close."
