proper shoulder press?

Pavel in power to the people recommends keeping the scapula retracted and depressed when doing shoulder presses, yet crossfit says to keep an active shoulder with the scapula elevated and protracted.
can someone clarify which is correct?
which is best for rehabbing shoulder?

Thanks

Re: proper shoulder press?

Pavel has stated that he teaches the "packed" shoulder to simplify instruction for novice athletes. He likes the active shoulder but I suppose finds it too complex for Joe Kettlebell.
