Meanwhile in Russia …
After Dmitry Berestov’s 200kg Push Press x2, here is the other Dmitry’s go at it.
Also check out Dmitry’s 225kg Push Press.
Update: Bonus Squat Session of him and Vasiliy Polovnikov. Dmitry works up to 260kg Paused. Plus they have a little English shout out for their upcoming seminars.
I’d like to see some big snatches and clean & jerks instead of this kind of staff 🙂 But of course it is very nice.

i agree. it’s so hard to find videos of snatches and clean and jerks. i’m gonna seek out all videos and non-classic lifts and voice my disapproval.
I don’t disapprove I’m just looking forward to the worlds and I’d like to see the big guns coming to form that’s all.
The Russians Are Coming.
It really was a funny movie, Moscow gave it a good review when it came out.
I hope they have a great time when in the US. Welcome to the US.

more should come to america when their careers are over. who wouldnt want to get some russian coaching? tell me that?
wonder why he is using suicide grip for push press. I know some of the germans use suicide grip for jerks.
What advantage does it give?
german (former gdr) coach once sad to me, that your mobility overhead is better with this grip. ..but for me – there is no difference. give it a try!
I also use it for OHP and close grip bench.
Feels like it lets me externally rotate my arms more which makes it more stable.
The wrist is also better alined. One of my coaches simply switches when the bar comes up a little at the top of the clean. I tried it, but I have trouble with the switching. The position itself is better for the wrist. However, it’s not dangerous either. The worst thing that might happen is that you lose the bar in front. It’s not comparable to bench pressing where you cannot go anywhere. So thumbless grip is probably a better description.
