because the military press is almost, almost,. almost as cool as the bench press
and 225 is a good goal to start with

some rules
1. must be while standing
2. must be a strict press

I did 185x3 on the push press. Does seated shoulder press count? Because likely to get 225 much earlier on seated press than standing press.

I got a 260lb strict press about two days ago. It's much more fun than the bench press and feels way more natural.

Though I tend to do them from resting on my traps and up.

My wrists hurt like hell trying to push from the front up - not flexible enough !

Not to be a bitch, but shouldn't a strict MP be from the shoulders ? Just wonder what you guys think.
