Muscles trained:  Shoulders, triceps

Set a loaded barbell in a rack about chin height. Grab the bar with a shoulder-width, overhead grip and take a step back. Stand holding the barbell at shoulder level, your feel shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Push the weight straight overhead, leaning your head back slightly but keeping your torso upright. Pause, then slowly lower the bar to the starting position.
