Meanwhile in Russia…
Chingiz Mogushkov (+105kg) Strict Presses 175kg. It looks like the guys at Chekhov were having a friendly Pressing competition and it’ll probably be uploaded later to Berestov’s YouTube channel.
You can follow Chingiz on instagram here.
Update: Berestov’s YouTube Video.

dayum, i like that gluten & gains shirt
Agreed. I wonder where he got the shirt?
Thanks for the link, Bro.
“iI isn’t just about the gluten or the gains, it’s about the lifestyle.” Awesome.
lol yeah, the second my wife saw that shirt she just had to have it. Amateur lifter and baker! So I googled.
Oh my, Taranenko did 230 in this exercise.
Definitely not in strict press.
Didn’t he mean Alexeev’s style by “old Olympic style”?
yes, but the old press in the olympic style and the strict press is the same exercise.
Not sure if this is a joke or you’re being serious…
I am not talking about the clean phase
Me neither, that would be silly. However, don’t forget that old olympic pressers did a “double layback press”. After leaning back und jerking the weight off the shoulders, they leaned back again and pressed themselves under the barbell. In fact, the old olympic press is closer to a modern power jerk than a strict press. Some lifters of that time could barely do more weight in the clean&jerk than the clean&press.
Mr. Magneto, your words are absolutely right, I agree with you. But my point is, do you really think that Chingiz did more a “classic strict press” or an “old style olympic”?
That’s why I said that Taranenko lifted 230kg in this exercise, because I don’t think that Chingz did a one hundred per cent strict press.
I think it is more of a strict press. Take away the bouncing of the bar at the beginning and it is a 100% strict press.
But the point in this discussion is that we don’t know how Taranenkos 230 press looked like. Since there is quite a difference in load I think one can reasonably assume the two lifts looked quite different too.
By the way I was watching some clean and press in the final years of 1970, 71 and 72, and the lifters were doing almost a push press, just like you said they leaned back before the bar being pressed. But look at the clean & press of the 50’s and 60’s, they lifted much more like a strict press, or military press.
Some say that even the judges didn’t know the rules of the clean and press in the final years, may be that’s the reason the press was abolished
you can say that in the old style press the lifter does a hyperextension on lower back, and the strict press is strict, but I Think that everytime someone does a max effort in the strict press there is a hyperextension on the lower back, look again the video above,
155 for Berestov?For me that’s impressive. Especially since it’s an assistance exercise that he probably doesn’t train that often.
The 175 are of course impressive, but Mogushkov is also skilled in using the whipping motion of the bar.
Definitely. but he has always been a strong presser (strict, BTN snatch press, or push press)
But still, a 155 press from an eleven years retired 105?! It doesn’t matter how good at presses he’s always been, that’s nuts.
Why did you say he’s eleven years retired? He competed in 2008 internationally and several years after domestically
But i have only seen him do 150 before and assumed that was his pr
Oh yeah, well I squatted that once.
well i’d like to see the squat video at 1:00 in the background on the left….. what is that? like six red plates each side? looks like polovnikov on the bench…
..ok its 5 plates, because of the collars… but daaammmmn
That’s Marcel Guidea (put that name in the ATG searchbox if you don’t know him 🙂 )
