Nice little addition to a leg
workout courtesy of our Olympic lifting friends . You may not end up
snatching world class weights but your squat form will improve as
will stability in the overhead press and maybe your jump shot at hoops !

My go to shoulder compound . I used a 6 foot 1-1/4 " dia. cold rolled steel bar with shaft collars 10" from each
end . Loaded 25#ers 10s and 5s and managed 200# x 10 in strict style . Never much benched on an incline but when I did sets of 10 with 240# were easy .

I used the close grip bench press as the other major pressing movement
in my routine (post powerlifting). Dips were also substituted for this on occasion.
1.Full Squats
2.DB heel raise
3.WA standing press
4.DB row or DB pullover or chins
5.CG bench press or dip
6.EZ bar curl
7.overhand deadlifts
The wide grip press and the close grip bench were and are an awesome tandem
in my experience . The hand spacing on the CG bench was typically 12"...

I always loved Tommy Kono tip to keep bar close in Clean and Snatch Pulls ; do them with a blindfold. I used a sleeping mask, the hardest bit was making sure grip on bar was in correct place!! Colin.
