Push Press, Barbell

Type: Shoulder
The barbell push press is an effective exercise for developing the deltoids, and is performed by pressing overhead, extending the arms, only slightly using the legs. Using the legs allows you to gain momentum from the lower body and ultimately press more weight by doing this. It hits multiple muscles and will help develop big powerful shoulders. Below you'll find a video guide and step by step instructions that describes the correct technique for the barbell push press exercise.
