Push Press Benefits


  • The Push Press is a full body compound exercise. Your shoulders and arms press the weight over your head while your legs, lower back and abs balance you. The Push Press is one of the effective exercises to build strong, muscular and healthy shoulders with bigger arms.
  • Push press is a very useful exercise for building strength in the body, but it may not be suitable for beginners. It is very important to keep the correct form in the push press movement. This is why it is recommended for beginners to do it with empty weights until they can do it in the right form.
