    Push press

    Shop Now
    Not sure why but, all of my research on SS shows either a push press with a slight jumpy motion or a completely stiff military press in the routine. Can someone with the book tell me which excersise is actually in the routine? Thx

    I don't have the book in front of me but I'm pretty sure it is a strict press - since the program is about strength I would think you would want to take out the assistance of the hip/knee extension.

    It's an "Overhead Head Press." Not a military press or a push press. Military press is heels together, push press is a dynamic lift.

    Rippetoe On not calling "The Press", "The Shoulder Press:"

    Is the SS world it's solely referred to as "the press" otherwise formally known as "The Overhead Press."

    Either movement can have its place. I'm about to start using the push press the help get me through a plateau I'm hitting in my pressing. My interpretation of pressing in SS is just putting the bar overhead. Either way, you have to lower the bar in a slow, controlled manner during which is where the muscle damage occurs (from which you rebuild and gain).

    Definitely one of my favorite Rip quotes.
