    Default Knee movement in the press

    I very aggressively lock my knees in the press, especially on limit reps, but occasionally upon reviewing film, I detect a slight push press.

    Here are some recent examples.

    Am I in the clear or do I need to fix something?

    Turn the volume down unless you want to hear my gymís awful music

    Knees are fine in all these presses.

    Since the bar isn't in contact with the shoulders, any motion of the knees can't actually translate to the bar, as in a push press. It'll make the lift harder to move. You'll know it's "too much" when you miss a rep.
