I'd really like to get my military press up. Definitely need to work on that. :thumbup:

Nice arch on the bench. Your butt is still on the bench though, right? It's a teeny bit hard to tell from the video because the black bench pad and your shorts kinda blend together.

Are you going for a true military press (rigid, feet together) or just an Olympic press (locked knees)? If the latter, try flexing your quads to keep your knees locked, and flex back at the hips at the beginning of the movement.

Course. Definitely hard to tell in the video, but I always make sure my butt is on it.

I guess an Olympic military press is what I'd go for...? My feet are apart when pressing. I'll try flexing the quads next time. Maybe that'll help with stability!
