Praetorian Press

Take a normal 45 lb olympic bar and stand it up on end, with your hand gripping the bar at a level that allows your elbow to bend at a 90 degree angle. Then hammercurl the barbell to shoulder height and press it overhead keeping your elbow in.

Nice forearm, bicep and tricep exercise. Can also be done with a lighter weight olympic length bar or E-Z Curl bar. That Olympic bar is Very hard to control. Just made this up.

Been done.

Praetorian Press - I really like the sound of that! Where did you come up with that name?

I think a 5’ straight bar would work great. Perhaps a little less awkward than the 7’.

I might just go try this right now.

I figured it had been done, theres no way someone hadnt came up with that one before. What is it called? And the other reason I made this thread was to see how many people would click on the link just because it said Praetorian Press, which is just the baddest ass name I can think of…

Well at first I was going to post the name praetorian press and just see how many people clicked on the link because of the badass name. Then I was think of a move that could be similar to a Praetorian Guard holding a spear. And the Praetorian Guard was the Imperial Roman Guard assigned to protect the emperor and had other duties in Rome itself…
