Hell yeah there is.
Bench press is great, and I'm not trying to diminish the lift just because I suck at it, but I am loving the press more and more on a number of different levels.
I believe this basic urge to lift a heavy thing over our head is born in the same part of our brain that makes us stare at fire, and I'm a guy who likes to stare at fire. So you're damn right I like to press overhead. That's just meathead biology 101.
Moving past the science of pressing, the fact that so few men in my gym embrace the challenge of a strict press makes it even more appealing to me. I don't do them because they are easy.
