The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    what is the difference between military press and shoulder press

    i've noticed that many ppl do military presses. i am switching up my routine to do these instead of shoulder press but i checked out http://www.exrx.net/Lists/ExList/ShouldWt.html and these both look the same to me except one says to lower to chest, the other says to lower to neck.

    i checked on http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/mahler61.htm for military press it says "lower to your upper chest or chin (depending on what is comfortable)". what is the difference between military press and shoulder press?

    Strictly speaking, a military press is done standing, feet close together, back straight, with as good form as possible. As if standing at military attention. So technically there is no such thing as a seated military press. Otherwise there is no difference, an overhead press is an overhead press.
