Rev­o­lu­tionise your press­ing with the Klokov press – a Rus­sian weightlift­ing move that builds T-shirt-fill­ing shoul­ders

Men's Fitness - - Must-do Move -

Among gym-go­ers in the know, the name Dmitry Klokov is men­tioned with the same rev­er­ence en­durance ath­letes use for Wiggins, Farah or Froome – af­ter all, if scoop­ing Olympic gold for weightlift­ing doesn’t give your lifts le­git­i­macy, not much else can. And don’t worry if your press­ing is less than im­pres­sive be­cause his sig­na­ture move, the Klokov press, will work for any­one. Tra­di­tional be­hind-the-neck press­ing plays havoc with your shoul­ders, putting your joints un­der un­nec­es­sary pres­sure – so widen your grip to lessen the strain and make the move tougher, all while build­ing your hardto-hit del­toids. You’re welcome, com­rade.
