If you're built like a gorilla and can reach the bar without bending down maybe... otherwise

I was taught that a deadlift is not a squat. Hips higher than the knees.

I don't like that gym TBH. I wouldn't go there regularly unless my schedule does not give me time to go anywhere else or my friends are working out there and they ask me to come out. I don't like crowded gyms, it is really nice though.

I'm having some trouble with my military press form. I'm holding the bar shoulder width with my elbows facing forward and my abs are tight as long as I'm still consciously thinking about them. However, as soon as I push the bar past my eye level I start to lose a lot of strength and have trouble getting it up and locking out, even at a lightweight. Anyone have tips on this one?

pin presses help with lock out
u can do it for flat/incline bench , seated bb press , etc
all in the safety of the squat rack


edit: i would imagine u could do them standing in the rack as well, as long as u set the pins higher, generally ur elbows should be at a 90 degree angle or slightly lower as a starting position when your already holding the barPosted via RS Mobile

I would suggest going lighter and building your strength up.
Had to do that after I screwed up my shoulder. Started from scratch again to build up the strength in my shoulder.

I'm more curious as to why you are racking the bb with your elbows forward. Is there a reason for this? Do you weightlift? That's pretty good flexibility.

It is still possible to rack the bb on your delts directly underneath your hips, and under the center line of gravity with the elbows pointing down. I also start my military presses from where I normally rack my cleans but this is specific to my needs/goals.

Working on your lock outs as the previous poster mentioned is the logical advice. Also, push presses aren't a bad idea as it will really get you focusing on explosively driving the weight to the ceiling.

You may also want to try working your triceps a little more as they are used quite a bit at the top of the military press

Def need triceps strength to lock out anything. And I don't mean extensions and pulldowns Work on dips, go all the way down until your thumbs are hitting your chest, then go all the way up and to a shrug at the top. I think once you can add a plate to your BW dips, you should be able to lock out presses a lot easier.

Just gave seated barbell shoulder pin presses a try. Are they supposed to be a lot easier than regular seated barbell shoulder presses? I did 155 for 5 pretty easily, where I could have pressed 1 more rep (pin press)...and usually struggle to 8-10 with 130lb (barbell shoulder press). I set the pins to about mouth level (elbows past parallel).

are power shrugs a legit necessary workout? or just a way for guys to move numbers and get people watching?

big guy at the gym tonite who sorta walks around like hes the strong guy was power shrugging i think 635lbs. but they werent real power shrugs more of like a spasm jittery seizure. noobs were mirin hard. it was rediculous

i think he was probably just shown up since jeffh and i pulled no belt, no straps dealifts basically the same weight he does. he continuously fails on 4 plate deadlifts week after week after week with straps and a belt. every week the same thing. and i pull em for reps and jeff is just about there too. and he outweighs jeff by like 50lbs.

LOL oh those! Yeah you see clowns doing that a lot, because they think numbers are way more important than getting strong.
