Deadlift and Military Press question.

ok guys,

did these for the 1st time the other night and have a couple of separate questions...

Deadlift:

when i put it down after my first lift, should i stay crouched and then left again almost immediately or give it a few seconds between lifts, ie, if i want to do 3 sets of 8 lifts, how long between each lift roughly...

Military Press:

when i do this i find my back arches slightly to get the weight around the front of my face, should i move the weight directly over my head once ive cleared my face so to speak??

Thanks for input, ive tried youtube for these but there are so many videos i'm not 100%.... or if someone could link to a half decent video...

cheers

    It depoend how you;re training but for the most part: stay crouched and lift with only a small gap to ensure you;re not bouncing


    Military Press:

    Try not to lean back by arching your back but keep your abs tight and kind of lean back a little with your whole body, it's a bittle fiddly but is easier and VERY worth doing at high weights.

    Yes, press it over your head with your shoulders nice and back

    Ditto. When deadlifting stop between each rep, make sure you in the correct position to pull then lift.

    strict military press is to a dead stop at shoulder level


    from the sound of the earlier post you may want to try a couple of kg less than you have - keeping your back straight will be easier to achieve

    yeah i agree, it was the first time i'd tried it so it was bound to feel a bit weird.... i might have a word with one of the staff down the gym to check my form the next time i try it....

    thanks man...

    for shoulder press i bring the bar to my chin level. Works enough i think, lets you lift a little more weight so get better gains.
