Really cool vid. Might try these out tonight.
I've really enjoyed the last several videos. I'm looking forward to working in HDL's/Rack Pulls and the isometric presses into my training when I'm ready for them. Thanks for the videos Rip and Tommy!
These are awesome videos, It's cool to see an actual old timer teaching this stuff.
I am not fully understanding the difference between this olympic press and the press referred to in SS. The only difference I can see with my limited knowledge on the subject is, 1) a possible trap shrug to help get the bar going at the beginning of the movement, 2) maybe some more layback? and 3) getting under the bar by straitening out the hips and shrugging at the top seems to be less emphasized. Now with out flaming me can some one explain if this is technically a different lift and if so, how?
I am gonna also include some vintage videos I found in another article, just because I found them interesting. I am sure many of you have seen them but just incase.
In one of the vids the lifter seems to me, to keep the bar still whilst throwing his upper body back to extend and lock out his arms and then sitting up with the weight to get it into the finish position while already in the press extention. I assume this is why judging it got "complicated".
That Paul Anderson clean&press is a beautiful thing. Especially since his clean technique appears to be pure dogshit.
Ripp this is off topic but I remember you saying that before the advent of uprights ,another method was used for setting up the bench. Does a video exist from start finish.
These videos of Suggs coaching are absolute goldmines. Thank you to everyone involved for allowing this knowledge to be shared.
