Using biceps in the eccentric portion of overhead pressing

For those of you who did not understand it............


  1. Great video, Paul. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Wow, I'm definitely going to try 1,000 lbs. on my press tomorrow, thanks for the tips.

  3. Great video man. There are always a thousand and one articles on benching but almost never any good tips for pressing. I'm one of those freaks who likes pressing way more than benching.

    I'm hitting F5 every 30 minutes like some maniac. Really looking forward to the book!

  4. Those subtitles really helped.

  5. I'm curious: what has everyone been doing in terms of poundages on the Klokov presses? I fucking struggle like a motherfucker with 105 lbs. I can BTN with 225 but yesterday, I did 1x3x105, 5x3x95 on the Klokovs then said fuck this noise and went and did seated smith machine presses. I was fucking bushed.

    Paul, you doing 185x9 on the Klokovs is fucking retarded. I can't believe it. I hope your asshole falls out.

    What's everyone else been doing??

    1. I couldnt get 95lbs off my back a week ago and just got 95x4 yesterday.
      My shoulders feel like its coming apart during the grinders tho.
      My military press is 135.


  6. I usually try and have my students load their lats at the bottom of the press, but without realizing it I think was doing what you suggested. And I think the bicep loading will be easier to cue. I like how you said to imitate pulling the bar down to engage the biceps. Thanks for pressing tips, not very many out there.

  7. Thanks for sharing Paul.

  8. Thanks Paul,
    Great tip, Love your blog, no BS, no "miracle" program, just lifting heavy shit. The way it was intended to be.

  9. Tryed this technique in the gym last night and felt a lot better on the back.Managed more reps with heavier weight as well.Cheers big Paul.
