From StrongFirst Founder and Chairman, Pavel, in 2012, but still as relevant today as it was almost 4 years ago: http://www.strongfirst.com/the-best-press

Which press is best?

Which presses require high training volume and which don't?

Which are healthiest for your shoulders?

Which will work your midsection _more_ than your triceps?

How about dips? They're a pressing motion.

That article blew my mind and came to an unexpected, but wholly believable conclusion. I also love how it compares the pros and cons of the various exercises. It also makes me want to bench press!

I will point out though that he doesn't put the getup into the competition for best press because I guess it is more than a mere press. I'd think the getup is giving me enough that I can still feel superior, hahaha. I can certainly crank out one arm pushups without training for them no problem because I presume the getup gives me the strength for them.
