I call this the Epstein lift because Epstein didn’t kill himself by hanging, and I didn’t either.
I practice this in line with the oldtime strongmen, particular Farmer Burns, who did this as a test of neck strength.
Please do not try this at home. This is obviously extremely dangerous. I do it as a trained professional.
And if you’re looking for a strong neck there are much better and safer methods of training (such as the wrestler’s bridge).
This was from back in March of 2020, my best of the year. I had posted it on Instagram, but didn’t get it on Youtube until now.
After my house and gym burned down, I don’t currently have the setup to continue practicing this. So this will stand as my current record until I revisit it in the future.
