So today I was getting ready to do my normal workout routine which has Military Press involved in it. As I get ready to approach the bar I quickly decided to read a form article on how to do it correctly. Turns out I was doing Overhead Press this whole time and not “technically” military press. Whats the difference? Good question!
Difference between Military Press & Overhead Press
Turns out the main difference between the two is the foot stance and with just a simple adjustment of the feet you could be potentially doing a harder movement.
- Feet(Heels) Together
- Much harder than standard overhead press
- Wide stance (little bit past shoulder width)
- Easier than military press
Push Press we’ll save for another topic! Remember to have elbows forward and chest up. Turns out we learn something new everyday!
