In the push press, the core-to-extremity principle is obvious as the muscles of the power zone — including the hip flexors, hip extensors (glutes and hams), spinal erectors, and quadriceps — assist the arms in driving the barbell overhead. With the push press, you will be able to move overhead as much as 30 percent more weight than with the shoulder press. Regular practice of the push press — and the push jerk — develops power and speed, which are critical to effective and efficient athletic movement. —Adapted from “The Overhead Lifts” by Greg Glassman
