Nice work, Tom! Standing strict press is always humbling, isnt it?

Thank you.

Standing strict press is definitely a lot different than push pressing! I can actually strict press more with a log than I can with a barbell, but it is a shorter range of motion.

Work your sticking points like you would on bench. Also, warm up all muscles that help stabilize the weight in this movement. For example, I like to get a good lat pump and even do a little bicep work just because it makes me feel more solid, right before military/push presses.
