When doing Military Press?
Do you go all the way down to your chest? Do you just bring the bar down to a certain angle with your arms?
I'm almost 6 '7 tall... I hardly ever go down to chest because it causes a pain in my shoulder. I usually bring the bar down b/w my chin and nose. Is this cheating though?

If you are avoiding pain then it is not cheating since pain is the first sign of injury.

I bring the bar down to about my mouth as well otherwise I'll get a really bad pain in my shoulder. I don't considerate cheating because it's avoiding injury, and it's not like I'm competing with somebody else in the military press that we need to have the exact same form.

No not cheating and your being wise not to if there is pain. Going to far down with alot of weight is asking for trouble when you attempt to raise it.
