|Exercise Type:||Compound, Push|
Exercise Description and Instruction:
The standing overhead press is also called the military press, which got its name because the military used is as the truest test of one's strength. This shoulders exercise tests functional strength and calls on your back stabilizer muscles, which are not used in shoulder press variations with a back support.
We use the terms military press, shoulder press, and overhead press interchangeably.
