  12. Barbell Powerlifting improved?

    Powerlifting would be improved by replacing the bench press with the strict overhead press where there is no movement in the ankles, knees or hips and no downward movement of the bar after a ‘press’ command has been given. A small amount of backward lean is allowed but not to the point of...
