I’m a little unsure of the origins of the Neider Press, however the first person that springs to mind is strong-shouldered Bill Neider, who won the gold medal for the Shot Put at the 1960 Olympics in Rome. As I’m a little reluctant to start throwing heavy objects around the room, the Neider Press seems like a perfect alternative.
This movement is similar to doing a bench press whilst standing up, with the bar moving horizontally from the top of the chest to arms’ length in front of you. Needless to say, gravity is not your friend whilst doing these.
Note: I’ve recently started doing these with a plate (held like a steering wheel), so as to add a little grip work.
