It's hard to judge just how much we lost when the press went out of fashion.

The very important basic exercise you may know as the "shoulder press" or the "overhead press" or the "standing press" really needs none of these qualifiers.

Of course you use your shoulders; of course the bar goes over your head; and you're standing when you do it. And the "military press" is a different, stricter exercise, with none of the torso movement used in the "civilian" version that's known simply as "the press."

All this civilian motion under the bar is an important part of the oldest upper-body exercise in the catalog and makes the movement an indispensable part of an efficient strength program, especially for sports.
