The Klokov Press

Postby Fallen_Horse » Mon Nov 05, 2012 1:50 am

Someone posted this on VBB the other day, and I thought I would share it here. I haven't had the chance to try it yet, and I'm not sure if my flexibility will allow it, but people around the interweb seem to think it's a challenge....

Lovin' it!

try with caution if you don't snatch regularly. You will literally hear stuff in your shoulders snapping up when you do them.
We include them in our warm ups with an empty bar, would not really want to press them with any amount of weight.

To put this in perceptive, Klokov is only press about half what he can snatch.

Far out if you felt them with 30kg I am going to have to look for a broom stick
