Over the past five years this site’s amassed an enormous amount of content. To help you find the highlights, I’ll be taking a wander through the archives each Sunday.
This week – The Forgotten Lifts II.
I’ve been getting some great feedback following the first instalment of The Forgotten Lifts, with most people seeking a few more. Keep your training alive with a few of these :
- Hindu Push-up on Taekhte
First up, Steve Maxwell demonstrates the superb Hindu Push-Up (Dand) on a Taekhte (push-up board).
- Bradford Press
Named after weightlifter Jim Bradford, this is a great way to fire up the shoulders.
- Hise Shrug
Joseph Curtis Hise (often called the father of American weight training) popularised a number of great ideas in the west, including the flat-footed squat. Here’s another one of his great legacies – the Hise Shrug.
- JM Press
This is the king of triceps exercises. Brilliant.
- Neck Bridge Progression
As any wrestler will attest, bridging is a key element of neck training. Here are several variations of this wonderful exercise.
Want more? Take a look at these :
- Unsupported Leg Press
No leg press machine handy? Grab a training partner and a loaded barbell.
- Blast from the Past : Handbalancing
How about a dose of handbalancing? Superb.
