The military press is a variation of the overhead press weight training exercise using very strict form and no pre-movement momentum.The military press targets the deltoid muscles in the shoulders as well as the triceps. Additionally, it works the core and legs, which the lifter uses to help stabilize the weight.
Begin with a barbell that is placed chest height on a rack.
Grip the barbell slightly wider than shoulder width apart.
Bend your knees slightly and begin to place the barbell on your collar bone.
Take a step back from the rack.
Begin to slowly lift the barbell over your head and lock your arms. As you are lifting the barbell over your head, stick your head out so that it is slightly in front of your arms.
Slowly begin to lower the bar back down to it's initial position.
