Re: Shoulder Press: what's legal?

Alright, I was watching the videos for the past CrossFit games, and I found an example of the motion in the 2007 CrossFit games CFT video:

http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/C...Highlights.wmv (WFS)

At around 2:18, just prior to the press, if you look closely, you can see a quick, subtle dip just before the guy presses the bar when he lowers his shoulders. This is pretty much the exact thing that I'm doing.
The judges don't flag him, so I'm going to keep doing it.
