    never tried it, but seems like it would put the wrists in an awkward posistion.

    Did u take the barbell from a rack or did u bicep curl the weight up? lol

    Edit: Been looking at your sig huskie. How come your push press PR is lower than your mil press PR. Id of thought ur push pressing would be higher.

    i couldnt tell ya. im weird

    i did 155x4 on push press
    its probably because my ROM on push presses is alot higher then when im doing seated military presses. when i do those, my arms go to just lower then 90 degrees. with push presses its from my sternum to lockout then back down.

    Yer, it probably is because your mil presses were seated. i didnt take that into consideration.
    I think seated mil pres or (seated shoulder press) takes a lot of stress off the stabilising msucles so allows you to push more weight overhead. (i wud imagine) Nice lifts anyhow
