Strict Military Press Up to 275 lbs

Now that my achilles is feeling better, I can do some overhead military press again. I like to do these with strict form until I get the feel back. I went up to 275 lbs, which was not bad for 1st day back. When I get to 315, I will start push-pressing to get more reps. I find it unnecessary to go over 315. I can get as big and strong as I need to be by adding a few sets at 315. I'll use the seated Hammer strength if I feel I really want to go heavier. Much safer on the old joints.
