    Question 2 pt question. dead lift nut touch and military dumbell press vs barbell shoulder pre

    When I was doing dead lifts today, I was getting really good reps and form I thought, but the bar kept lifting my junk up every time I fully extended. Is this a sign of correct form?

    And also, I enjoy pressing the barbell over head instead of seated dumbbell military press because I get some core work in with the barbell. Am I missing any benefits of the military press by doing barbell press?

    Why don't you do standing military press with the bar?

    Didn't even know there was a seated military press since it gets it's name by the way you stand (military salute). As far as deads, kinda of lol'ing at the nutt touch so not really sure how to answer that.

    Overhead pressing really seems to be an individual deal. Everyone has their own preference - standing or seated, dumbbells or barbell, wide grip or narrow. Some folks even do handstand pushups on a pair of boxes so they can get full ROM instead of overhead pressing. The Ultimate Warrior was apparently a big fan of the seated barbell shoulder press from behind the neck, and said once in an interview he could get 7-8 reps with 315 that way. If whatever you're doing is working, keep it up.

    As for the deathlift, it's probably your arm length. I have shorter arms and the bar ends up hitting above my junk at full extension, but you might have longer arms proportionally. Look on the bright side - if that's the case then you're probably gonna be a naturally better deadlifter than me.

    Agree with IDBLOL.
    It's not neccessarrily indicative of poor form. I've got long limb short torso bone structure and the bar used to grab me package all the time. A couple things can help:
    Adjust your grip width so you find the ideal bar height at lockout.
    Wear some compression boxer briefs/briefs.
    Develop some big quads.
    Get a smaller deck.

    If you can narrow your grip at all, that will help get the bar lower at extension

    Ahh awesome feedback. My arms are longer than my height

    Docs used to think I had Marphans syndrome because my arms were so long.

    Good on dl bad on bench I guess.

    Ill take it.

    And I have been wearing boxers. I'm going to start looking into compression shorts.

    And since its preference in going to stick with barbell overhead press. Gonna go for 135 twice next time haha I'm only a couple months in here.
