is it possible to have a strong incline bench and a weak military press
my incline bench has always been strong my best lift was 265 for 4 reps at a body weight of 188, but somehow i dont understand this my military press sucks. is this possible? i always thought the incline bench used alot of delts. so u would think that a strong incline and a strong military would go hand in hand. and suggestions on this.

If you are new to military your body will need to adapt to it...

A lot of lifters arch their backs when performing the seated shoulder press. This really brings in the upper pecs to help the delts in the movement. Another thing people do is not use a perfectly vertical bench when shoulder press. This, again, will allow the upper pecs to help. If you take the arch out of your back and use a perfectly vertical shoulder press bench, then your seated shoulder press weight will suck. Hope this helps!
