The Bent Press by Arthur Saxon

The above photograph is the only one which has been published showing me with the bell at the shoulder in the act of pressing.

In the photograph I show exactly where the elbow should be placed, and it does not require much imagination to gain a correct idea of how the body should fall in the downward direction.
