    There are plenty of guys eating college food who make great progress. Just get some kind of protein every meal, and eat as much fruit and vegetables as you can get your hands on.

    Also if you have a frige buy 3-4 gallons of milk, make that last 2 weeks or so... best weightgainer on the market, and that'll only cost ya 6-10$

    I do standing millies. I think I'm one of few on this board..lol. I like them, and I don't really have a bench capable of doing them seated anyway. I set one foot slightly back and concentrate on finishing the rep directly above my head, while bringing the bar down to chest level each time. Cleaning the weight into position can put a huge strain on my delts, so I've really worked on the form involved in that, along with making a smooth transition into that first rep. One day I plan to do a routine of all olypic lifts, so it'll benefit me at some point I'm sure.

    The clean should be the trivially easy part compared to strict or push pressing weight overhead. Work on form until it is easy.

    I do my standing militaries in the squat rack so there's no need to clean the weight--I just take it off the pegs.

    (So, mrelwooddowd, there's at least two of us who do the standing mil's...)

    Your traps should be doing almost all the work on the clean, the deltoids only activate to 'catch' the bar ideally.

    The movement is easy enough, but catching the weight as it settles in can be painful. I think I have a rotator injury as well, so I try to just make a smooth transition into the press without actually letting the weight completely settle down and stress the delts.

    Before I got my power rack I was squatting this way as well, actually putting the weight on my shoulders and taking it back off, so I've got the clean pretty much straight.

    I lived in the athlete's dorm my freshman year in '87-'88. It was called NUF, for New Undergraduate Facility. Even though I wasn't in the athletic dept, they let me eat in the dining room. It was so much sweeter than the dining halls. And back then, all we had were the dining halls where you had to eat on the meal plan...there was no debit system. It was cool, tho'...once a month it was steak nite, and we could have as many as we wanted! And we were the first dining hall to have a soft ice cream machine and a microwave...wow, so many years ago...
