One alternative to the military press that i have been doing is military pressing in a power rack, using the safety bars to perform zero momentum presses. I take an adjustable bench, and put it to the most vertical setting, align the safety pins so when seated, the barbell rests at about eye/nose level. From this position, i do traditional military presses. The benefits i have found from using this movement is that it keep the triceps involvement minimal, while forcing the front delts to generate all the power from a dead stop.
It is a humbling exercise, as i can only get about 60% of what i can do for regular military presses. Some tips i have when doing this movement are to use a thumbless grip, because it will force your drive the weight away from your body, as opposed to a traditional grip, where the groove will track straight up, letting your triceps over-compensate. Another tip is to take towels and lie them over the safety bar where the barbell rests during the negative. This lessens the impact, and takes away loud clanking when doing reps.
I like to do higher reps so i can can totally control the weight in my front delts, and not try to muscle dick the weight and slouch my ass down on the seat so i can avoid incorporating my pecs as much as possible. i like to open with this movement on a shoulder day, as it is a safe way to get a lot of work on the muscle group ( i had labrum surgery a couple years ago, and this really lets my focus on the delts without fear of injury)
Just remember, stop between each rep and start from zero momentum. Drive the weight forward, and stay tight. Lock-out, and control the negative so you dont splash the weight as it reutrns to the safety bar. Enjoy.
