I first heard about french presses reading online Sounds like something stupid to me. Can anyone explain what that is and is it something to train your shoulders or arms or what? Do you ever do it. Seems like you never heard of it
The French press exercise targets the muscles on the backs of your arms—specifically the long head of the triceps. 2. French presses can increase stabilization. French presses activate muscles throughout your upper body and lower body as stabilizers—including your glutes, core, lower-back muscles, pecs, and deltoids. Let the weight of the bar pull the elbows backwards (towards the wall behind you) and then "drag" it forward while pressing up over the back of your head. Use a controlled negative and repeat.
I would suggest go on YOUTUBE search French Press you can review few video clips,
