Push Press


Target Muscle: Shoulders (Deltoids)

Preparation
Grasp barbell from rack or clean barbell from floor with overhand grip, slightly wider than shoulder width. Position bar chest high with torso tight. Retract head back.

Execution
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart [A]. Now dip your knees [B], and then in one movement, straighten your legs as you explosively press the barbell over your head until your arms are straight [C]. Return and repeat.

Comments
This exercise engages the quadriceps muscles of your thighs to help you generate more force. The upshot: You’ll be able to use heavier weights, while activating a greater number of total muscles.
