Skull Crushers = French Press?

Just started the Waterbury method (done the first day) and have taken a look at tomorrows exercises to find that french presses are to involved.

After some googling… isnt a french press the same as a skull crusher? or are there some suttle differences? Sorry if it sounds totally stupid but i had never even heard of a french press before this program and using google just added to the confusion.

Thanks for any help.

Skull crushers are normally performed lying on a bench with an EZ bar. French Presses are done seated or standing.

Thanks for the clear up, out of every google picture only one had it done seated… For once it does not know all :frowning:

Yeah, skull crushers lying, french press seated. Good luck with your program!
