The barbell pull-over to press is a complex that combines two popular exercises into one sequence that works much of the upper body, particularly the chest, triceps, and serratus anterior muscles. It is commonly performed with an EZ-bar, but can also be performed with a straight bar or neutral-grip bar. Because the pull-over will determine the amount of weight you can use, this movement is usually performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set or more, as part of the upper-body portion of a workout.
