Article on history of the press


I found an interesting article titled "The Tragic History of the Military Press in Olympic and World Championship Competition, 1928-1972", about the history of the press:

(safe for work, family, etc.)

Re: Article on history of the press

Wow, very informative! It would be neat if they made the push-press a competitive lift. Allowing this would eliminate all of the issues of just how much deviation from a strict press should be allowed. It would be easy enough to differentiate from a jerk.

Re: Article on history of the press

Thank you Justin for posting this great article, now we all know the whole history of the press.

I'd also like to thank Rip for introducing us to the press and adding it to the CrossFit Total to differentiate the CFT from a powerlifting competition.

The picture of that guy doing a standing bench press with 455 lbs made me cringe...
