Just curious to see if anyone raises the bar above anywhere except their chest.
I have heard of people pressing to their neck.
Train,train hard.Eat,eat lots and sleep even more.
That'd be a little akward to me. Cant say that I've seen anyone do that. I'm kinda curious also what this would work as oppose to pressing from the chest. I would think that someone couldnt press near as much weight that way.

I stop about 2-3 inches from my chest. For some reason I am not flexable enough to touch the bar to my chest w/o some decent pain in my shoulders.
Yeah i press from the nipple area, maybe a little higher but i cant imagine pressing from the neck that would feel ******ed.
I would guess that if you press from the neck ya gonna **** your shoulder up once you start adding some weight to the bar. If it doesn't feel natural, dont do it!
