Individual exercise information is available by clicking the links above, and more detailed information specified for the Press can be found below.

The press is an exercise where a weight is pressed away from the body. It is not the same as a push-up, as in a push-up the body is pushed away from the ground or another object.

A press can be performed while standing or laying down. While laying down, the angle of the body can also vary, i.e. incline or decline.

The main movers for the press are the delts, pecs, and triceps. How much the pecs are involved will depend on whether it's performed from a supine position or not and the angle of the arm.

Even within the shoulder or chest press exercise, there are many different variations created by the angle at which the arm is positioned. The angle and body position has an impact on what muscles or part of the muscles do most of the work.
