The Push Press

The push press is huge for developing power and strength of the upper body as well as the power transfer from the hips and core.  A secret of getting big and strong from old generation weightlifters was doing heavy push presses.  Because you can load more weight on the bar when you add the hips to the movement it allows for mega strength gains.
