The press, overhead press or shoulder press is a weight training exercise, typically performed while standing, in which a weight is pressed straight upwards from the shoulders until the arms are locked out overhead.
The press is set up by taking a barbell and putting it on the anterior deltoids. This can be done by taking the barbell from a rack or by cleaning the weight from the floor (clean and press). Alternatively the movement can be performed with dumbbells, though they do not rest neatly on the deltoids. They do not have easily accessible high racks so the trainee needs to clean them or have a spotter assist them in getting them into the starting position.
The press involves moving a barbell or dumbbells from the shoulder and pushing it up above the head until the elbows are fully locked out. As the bar clears the head, the lifter leans forward slightly in order to keep balance. As the bar is lowered back to the shoulders and clears the head again, the lifter leans slightly back.
Press is the debut album from American ska punk band MU330, released in 1994.
According to the band's website, Press was recorded in the basement of saxophonist Matt Knobbe's parents' house in late 1993. The album was first released independently in 1994 on the band's own label, NO Record Co., before being picked up and re-issued by Moon Ska Records later the same year. In 1997, when MU330 moved to Asian Man Records, Press was re-released with two additional tracks, both unrecorded Press-era songs recorded by the band's 1996 line-up.
Press was the only MU330 studio album to feature vocalist/trumpeter John Kavanaugh and saxophonist Matt Knobbe, who both left the band shortly afterwards. On December 31, 2011, the original Press-era line-up reunited at the Firebird club in St. Louis to perform the album in its entirety.
