Re: Anyone ever shoulder press unevenly?

The heavy metal collars weight about a pound each.

I just use them when trying to eek up my SP.

Re: Anyone ever shoulder press unevenly?

You know, that collar idea occurred to me recently. The gym I use has weight collar Nazis that are paid (it seems) to walk around and make sure I have a collar on my weights, I realized suddenly that not only was every PR I have 2 lbs heavier than I thought but that Two collars on each side are the answer to "added safety" and incremental loading.

depends on how you are measuring your weight on the PRs. If you are counting the bar as 45#, then probably not as they are actually 44# and a set of spring collars (at least the ones I have) make up the additional pound.
