Yeah I think building up this way I will hit a 280 x 8 with good form very soon.

I think im actually doing an overhead press... feet are shoulder width apart, standing in a squat rack... and I'm doing everything I can to get the bar up (on final reps, using momentum from legs to get bar off chest, then straight shoulder press with no body english for the rest of the movement... if I can't get it above head I consider it a failed rep).

Pretty sure a strict military press your heels are together and its just shoulder pressing. I do this with the DB press, sitting upright.
