Thought that Steven may be interested to know the Iron Cross and his article are being discussed on T-Nation

normal warning as T-Nation is on the WFS boundary

Not so much discussed, but reposted, which sounds like a violation of something...

Yeah, it is a violation. I'll alert Greg or something.

You don't need that designation on PM.

Thanks for the heads-up.

They're saying no one over 6'2" can do an iron cross? Does that mean I have no hope :(

Not that I really want to do one, it's just pretty lame

Is this article posted anywhere else? Something I would like to read up on.

Could you PM if you have a link? Thank you

You can purchase it here: http://cathletics.com/pm/index.php

Or, because Robb and Greg are so magnanimous, you may use your free download to get that issue.

(Subscribe, its worth it)

Can anyone upload the pics on the article? It doesn't seem to be working on mine.

When Greg archived the articles in a better format the pictures went away.

Unfortunately, all of the pictures are on my laptop... which is dead at the moment. Most of them were demonstratining technique and the various movement protocols. If you need a more detailed description I can provide one.

No, not at the moment I don't need them. I was more or less curious though. Thanks though. I think I might take up on your offer for the detailed description later in the future though.

Bert Asserati... cross at 265 lbs, 3 one arm chins

Not sure his height, but yeah, someone 6'2" could probably do one.
