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