What's the deal with starting the press at the face level?

Rules were just to start below the chin. He's reaching for it, but the bar's below his chin when he starts. Who cares, I don't know of anyone else who can do a 405 strict standing press...

ps. what's the deal with weak people belittling strong people (he overhead presses 100+ your back squat??)? what's the deal with cell phones?

Belittling? Are you PMSing or something? I just asked a fucking question.

The guy's an animal. I'm assuming everyone's seen this video, but if not - the muscle snatch at 150kg (2:16 into the clip) is still one of the most impressive things I've seen.

Sure...water...right. ;)

Gavin, pressing from the chin level is (I'm guessing) akin to doing something like a two- or three-board bench. It's simply a different lift than a press that begins touching the upper chest, as the major sticking point of the full press is avoided. Just because guys here can't do that type of weight doesn't mean they can't ask questions.

If that's their rules, cool, sure, no problem. It lets guys put up bigger weights...if that's what floats their boat, fine.

Could that rule also have come about because many of these guys cannot actually bring a bar to touch their chest in a pressing position? Just wondering...

Garrett,

That's what I think, a lot of these huge guys don't have the flexibility to rest a bar on their front shoulders and hold onto it (evidence: Louie Simmons "Front Squat Harness" because they don't have the flexibility to hold onto a bar to front squat with it). Though, the sticking point thing I don't really think is true, for me the major sticking point is right at the very top of my head. Oh well, overhead pressing isn't really hat practiced anymore and seeing anyone put up a big press is always neat :)

Both of these guys are crazy strong.

I thought it was interesting that he had a pretty slow bar ascent for a push-press, but still basically no sticking point. Even at max weights I'm used to seeing push-presses start faster then slow a lot at the 1/2 - 3/4 point.
