I do the military press. I feel it should always be done standing though.
Last workout I did 145 x 5. I had more in the tank, I would guess I could have done about 7 reps, but I am saving my max outs for my "3" and "5-3-1" workouts and trying to just do my prescribed reps on the "5" and "deload" days. I am a rather weak presser and am much stronger in pulling and legs.

I do the standing press, not military press. For it to be a military press your heels have to be touching. Most people say they do military press when in reality they are doing a standing press with their feet shoulder width apart.

My problem with doing them seated is they lose a lot of functionality. I have never in my life had to lift something heavy over my head while seated.

Right, but seated shoulder press us far more taxing on the shoulders, which is better of that is what one is going for. All depends on goalsOriginally Posted by boogyman

Seated shoulder press is far more taxing on your kinetic chain. Terrible exercise imoOriginally Posted by uvawahoowa

Same for flat bench press. How often do you have a flat back when pushing something? Usually you lean forward like the incline bench position. That doesn't mean it's dumb to do flat bench though.Originally Posted by boogyman

I also think standing presses have more importance than the benchpress.
