    As background, I'm doing a pull/push/legs schedule on Mon/Wed/Fri respectively. I started out with individual muscle exercises in each group, but I've started replacing some of those with multi-joint exercises.

    I'm looking for suggestions for multi-joint exercises for the 'push' workout. This one focuses on chest, shoulders and triceps. The individual muscle exercises that I'm doing in that workout right now are:

    Chest: Bench press, push ups
    Shoulders: Lateral raises, front raises, overhead press
    Triceps: Dips, triceps extensions

    ... and I'm doing them in that order too.

    Can you suggest any multi-joint exercises that would be reasonable replacements for any of these?

    Thanks for any ideas!

    In case it's useful to someone else... I finally unearthed the Standing Military Press for this one. It seems to meet my needs very well.
