Also question is, what is a barbell French press?
French Press. Start lying prone on a flat bench with your feet placed firmly on the floor hip-width apart. Hold the barbell at full extension over your chest area. Movement. Keeping your upper arms stationary, flex your elbows to lower the bar towards your forehead.
Subsequently, question is, what are French curls? Sometimes called a triceps extension or French press, the French curl is one of the best ways to build your triceps — the oft-forgotten muscles behind your biceps. French curls can be done standing, sitting, or on a bench, and you need to maintain a specific form to get the most out of this tricep workout.
Also question is, how do you use a standing French press?
Sit the weight on your shoulder. Both palms facing up, wrap around the dumbbell. Elbows facing up. Exhale, contract the triceps and press the weight up.
What does JM press stand for?
The JM Press – named for legendary lifter JM Blakely – solves our dilemma. If you're not already familiar with it, the JM Press is sort of like a cross between a barbell skull crusher and a close-grip bench press.
