Default military press how to?

Hey guys

when doing military press with barbell do you

1. go down to chin level.

2. go to chest.

reason i want to know is it bad to go to chest? cause when i do this i feel a greater stretch and i believe it helps round the delts more.

i have no pain from it. just want to know what is safer in the long run.

I always go down to chest if I press to the front, or down to the traps if I press behind the neck.

If I ever did presses in the smith machine I wouldn't go below chin though for the same reason Rhino states, the angles gets all weird when the motion is that locked. One more reason why I avoid smith machines like the plague

I feel when I go heavy,I can only go as low as shoulder level and any lower puts to much strain on my front delts. I do have a very long reach and this maybe my problem.
Millitary press rocks

i use to bring it all the way down to chest, but now just to chin. i feel like i lose the tension in my delts when i bring it all the way down to chest (and strain my muscles a little more). i get a bigger pump bringing it to below chin.

Yeah, I would agree with Paddy. I would go down to chest but if I feel too much stress on the shoulders I would shorten the ROM.
