Ok...after getting back into the swing of things in February after a long long layoff, I'm trying to get back to my old strength training goals.

One of the things I am finding great interest in now that I never really tried before is to see how much I can military press.

Does anyone have any advice on how to increase my military press poundages? I am doing speed strength exercises at the moment, but am looking for pointers.

I'm at 185x3 at the moment...hoping to get up to 225x? shortly.

Are you doing Standing Military Pressing? If so, try doing some Push Pressing as it allows you to manage more weight because of the assistance of your lower body (particularly the movement of ankle, knee and hip flexion/extension) in order to increase your poundage, but be careful with your lower back and shoulders.

Yep, doing standing military presses with the barbell.

Where could I find an example of a push press? I'm not familiar with it.

Thanks quijr...

I like push presses. Throw them in my shoulder workouts all the time.
