    Question for you. Given the sedentary lifestyle of the magority of individuals would it make more sense to stand, activating the stabilizing muscles of the trunk, instead of sitting? I understand your loads are large, but we sit all day why go to the gym and do the same.
    Also, the positioning of your shoulders during the press seems to place a split load between the front delt and upper chest. If that is the intended goal then I understand. However, if the intended goal is to isolate more delt would you want such an inclined position?

      ## Not necessarily. Depending on pelvic alignment, strength and mobility, standing might present more problems. Also, this is my training routine, not an article talking about the pros and cons of standing or seated military press.

      ## That is the position that feels good for my shoulders.

    Jim: I noticed that the back of the bench was slightly declined for your DB shoulder press. I was taught to have the bench straight up. Does it matter?

    Many thanks for another great video.

    I always have the bench at a slight incline. When the bench is straight up, and the dumbbells go over a certain weight I find it hard to keep the weight stable. Feels like it’s pushing me forward alittle if that makes any sense.
