I just came across these pics. wow, quite the back bend. i wasn't sure if those were slow presses or quick, and i found this video indicating that they may be quick. i'd like to know though if people put that kinda back bend in a slow press.


i know they took out the press, but what about for training? i mostly do bodyweight pressing, but after seeing these, i'm curious about how much back bending people do when they do strict pressing with high weight.
