Purpose of Exercise: To use heavier than normal weight, or to continue to do more repetitions of shoulder presses after reaching a point of failure; to develop additional deltoid strength.
This is a cheating principle exercise used in power training. You can also use the push press to do forced reps at the end of a set.
Taking hold of a barbell with an overhand grip, hands slightly wider than shoulder width apart, clean the weight up to shoulder height. Bend your knees slightly and then press up with your legs to get the bar moving. Use this additional movement to press the bar up overhead. Then lock it out, and then slowly lower once more to shoulder position.
