Will be waiting for your video sir to address those points.

  2. Yes! Your body should be in a rigid isometric position during the entire press. A person should be able to apply some amount of force to your body and not disturb your position. Think about it from a martial arts perspective; that may help you better understand what I mean.
  3. Without being able to see where you're gripping the bar, I can't say whether or not you need to widen or narrow (..but your elbows are dropping far too low below your shoulder line Ziggy z00)!
The hip just moves as I balance my body with my heels. Hopefully once I see Steve's video I'll get the gist of it. Funny part, the same thing happens with incline DBs presses but I can minimize hip movement due to incline position.
