    Re: Militaries and Overhead DB Press

    I was looking at WBB Routine 1 and see that for delts it is suggested: Rack Militaries and Overhead DB Press. Why do both? They seem to serve the same purpose.

    Also what about Behind The Neck Press? I heard that this wrecks your shoulders.

    They both are listed because pressing movements are great exercises for your shoulders.

    dumbbells involve stabilizer muscles which is why it seems they were incorporated to supplement barbell military press, where a little compensation can take place.

    just seems odd, why not just do extra militaries

    DB overhead press exploits more weakness in the helper muscles. When one arm gives out, you KNOW it.

    ps. I'd replace rack militaries with standing barbell militaries just for the cleans
