This is the most visually dramatic lift and is frequently demonstrated by the team during meetings.The loaded bar is placed on the lifter’s shoulders and he then squats down (almost touching the floor with his backside!) and then slowly stands up again. The amount of weight is increased in stages and, during these demonstrations can be as much as 260kg. Of course in competitions, lifters can exceed this amount.
In this disclipline, the lifter lies on the bench, the loaded bar is placed in his hand and he has to lower it to his chest and the press it up to extend his arms.
In this disclipline, the lifter keeps his back straight and lifts the loaded bar from the ground.
Sounds simple? Try it!…
