In them Days a lot of coats were padded in the shoulder area. i could believe it though. He was not really a guy who promoted Overhead presses but does show the bradford press in some illustrations. A good exercise.

Not a big fan of behind the neck exercises but the Bradford press is constant tension ..for a free weight exercise.

Yes, that's Hilbilly Jim himself!! I used to have his action figure when I was a little kid.

I'm happy you posted that photo! I'd seen in years ago, but had forgotten all about it until now!!

I remember this team, w/ "Big Ron Shaw"! (In my best Vince voice).

"In 1988, he and Ron Shaw formed the Executioners".

Vince used to kill me on the mic "Raw Boned Swede Hansen"...  Cool
