have you ever used the veganfitness forums?? quite alot of the vbb guys are on there and most people post in Kg ;)
hope you're having a good week so far bud!

Thanks mate, no I've never been on that forum. I probably won't for now as I end up spending a lot of time on the computer, I'm already on a fair bit between this one and the Muscular Development forum... I run the Powerlifting section on that one so that keeps me pretty busy.

Look forward to seeing your bench come up, I'll keep an eye on things :wink:

Notes on the Klokov Press:

With the extra wide grip I found it tough, couldn't use much weight at all as it really exposes your weak points. I think it's harder because wide grip takes out the triceps, pressing from that dead stop is a killer. The dip/mini squat is simply what Klokov does to absorb the heavy weight coming back onto his shoulders.

Why am I incorporating this? Just another bit of variety that works across the whole shoulder girdle and making a weak point into a strength. I know a couple of guys from Eastside that have been using it (both military press 315+) and they've already increased their wide grip pressing strength as well as their overall pressing power; now that I'm benching with a wider grip I thought I may benefit a little from it also.

I looked up that Klokov press (OHP is my favorite lift) and now I'm stoked to try it out. I'm glad you posted a description to get me interested!

Man, looks like you gotta have ridiculous mobility for that Klokov Press, but it does look epic.

It was pretty tougher, considerably harder than your standard behind-the-head OHP.

Be sure to wear the proper support garment. Don't want those to flop around while you're lifting... :zunge:

Have a good couple of sessions to write up, just heading into my final heavy two weeks and then that's about it.

In a nutshell my squats are still shit, bench is okay and I think DL's are not too bad at the moment.
