    Military Press Stance


    What is everyones opinion on the military press stance. I was just curious because I currently perform them with my feet spread apart front and back. I find I acheive better balance and I don't get my legs bening under the bar to help it up like a jerk.

    That's the way I do it, just because I can balance much easier and get under it better.
