You guys gave some GREAT responses on the Military Press thread; THANKS! (Keep it going though!)
Now this is an age old debate that may not have a right or wrong answer, but I’ll run it by everybody:
With exercises like Military Presses, Dumbbell Presses, Dumbell Side Laterals, etc. that can be done either sitting or standing, which is the “better way” in terms of overall benefit?
In other words…some would argue that sitting gives you greater isolation of the Prime Mover, with less of a tendency to “cheat”.
The other side would say that with standing, you build greater “core” strength and stability (ALWAYS a good thing) by firing secondary movers (or “stabilizers” for clarity).
(Please don’t make this “there’s no such thing as stabilizers” thread! You guys get the point I’m asking!)
Fire away! (Coach Davies, Don Alessi, Christian T…your imput would be GREAT!!)
