Overview

The overhead press is a compound exercise that targets the shoulders, triceps, and traps. It is performed by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and holding a barbell at shoulder height with your hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. You then press the barbell overhead until your arms are fully extended, and then lower it back to shoulder height. The overhead press is a great exercise for building strength and size in the shoulders, and it can also help to improve your posture.
