Nice work. Twice. How much do you weigh at the moment? You look like you're about 110kg or so tops.

Beat me to it. The title didn't say it was raw strongman. Wait for the day strongman takes the powerlifting route with 50 different federations for knee sleeves, elbow sleeves, wraps blah blah and youtube haters saying it's cheating because he's wearing sleeves. .....

Used to be "office manager" which meant doing all the s**t like answering the phone, making the boss money, getting sworn at by customers down the phone because the manager of the company was too lazy to order parts for white goods etc. All for less than NMW and taking him to court to get the money he owes me. I quit and will go back into working in Higher Education next week, but that's only temporary. Looking for work in a cushy office where I can go on facebook, read the newspaper and eat biscuits.

Try a Savickas press and you'll understand.

It's shoulders day today. I'm doing VG presses. Was just wondering why it's harder. No momentum?

The whole idea of a savickas press is for it to be bottom up, off pins without using a back rest. Pressing from a.pause with no tension or stretch shortening cycle, making the initial movement and the lockout more challenging. I don't think doing them.on a bench, without using the back support, rather than the floor will detract anything from the efficacy of the exercise, but will in fact just make it much safer.

Is there a way of subscribing to a user? Do you write for any websites? I'll give them a go tomorrow. What do you think the benefits of doing away with the stretch shortening cycle will bring in an exercise where you never really fail at the bottom anyway? Surely by using a little leg drive, you can overcome any weaknesses at the bottom? Or do you think that Savickas Press or the better Vanilla Gorilla Press will increase RFD at the bottom, and when COMBINED with some leg drive, will smash you past any potential sticking points?

Another question - no offense intended but how would the Savickas/VG Press make the lockout harder? Is it just because you can't use any levers?

Edit - went on your journal and found your website. Will be checking that out a fair bit.

Rumour is that he had a bet with Ironmind Nails and lost. Bit of a steep forfeit if you ask me.....
