Two years ago today, one of the most prolific powerlifters in history stood underneath a bar loaded with a never attempted squat of 1,260lbs.

At the 2013 Arnold Strongman Classic no media outlets were allowed in the green room backstage of the main expo stage. We witnessed some terrific feats of strength, but alas, no interviews were conducted until the finals at Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Mike Johnston, PT CSCS is back with another installment of PSST! This time Mike tackles an unassuming issue with upper back work in relation to shirted bench work. Mike, wearing an Inzer Phenom discusses how he actually has to pull the bar to his chest in the last 2" of movement. Without proper accessory work, this action can cause the bar to come out of it's planned trajectory and ultimately can lead to the loss of the lift.
