    Not doing a lot of weight yet, because I'm working on form.

    You looked good up until those last couple reps where you looked a bit 'wobbly'. I would cut the set short before you get to that point. That is probably more of a core stability issue than lack of deltoid strength.

    How do you position your feet. IIRC, for a strict "military press", your heels should be touching, toes pointed slightly out.

    20 minutes? Took me about 5 seconds.


    Anyway, form looks pretty good. How wide do you have your hands?

    Edit: Nvm, watched it again. Looks good.

    Form looks solid. Negatives are controlled. I don't see any bounce translating from the hips to the shoulders so you aren't push-pressing. Needs better lighting to really see how your hips are/aren't engaging though.

    Overall solid.

    Looks fine on my end.

    Good form, no momentum or bounce. My form sucks on standing mili as i usually cheat on my last few reps.
