1) I notice guys will clean to their lap and then it looks like they reposition their grip before rolling up the chest?? I have just been training with my new sorinex log and as the weights increase the clean it getting harder, need all the help I can get. Is there some part of the handle that give better leverage for rolling the log up your chest or do you just want to stay centered?
2) I am looking to buy an axle...I was looking at elites el gordo....is having a non rotating bar a problem if you prefer thumbless grip?...will it want to roll out of your hand?
FWIW I just finished 8 weeks of z-presses with the log and now my z press is almost equal to my standing log press but I did not see the carryover, I must have been cheating on my z-press somehow (leaning back too much?) not sure.
