I really wish there was a "like" button for posts. Half the time I can't be bothered to write "yeah, what he said!".

Military press is a type of overhead press. The bottom line is put heavy stuff overhead.

Don't sit when you press. Or for any other exercise.

I'm trying desperately to think of an exception to this.

I can't.

I think it's better that we have people asking questions rather than running around in the gym without a clue.

Sleep is important. And fun. We need rest. Otherwise a brilliant list.

I like it! Sleep however is a valuable commodity that is in rare supply in my household with a 4 month old and a 2 year old, so I'm glad it missed the list! lol
