A bent press is a type of weight training exercise wherein a weight is brought from shoulder-level to overhead one-handed using the muscles of the back, legs, and arm. A very large amount of weight can be lifted this way, compared to other types of one-hand press. It was a staple of the old-time strongmen such as Eugen Sandow and Louis Cyr, but is no longer popular.
