What Ryan seems to be mentioning

NOT "The guy in the video has a weight on his cervical spine and therefore will injure himself".
Meaning that is what your post read like. Attacking someone for misunderstanding something you said is hardly civil behaviour.
You also appear to have missed my last sentence, where I quite clearly stated why I think the guy in the video would NOT have injured his neck doing that
(Or at least, doing it correctly, if I interpreted your statement correctly and he is in face doing it before the stage of his training where it would be appropriate for him to do it, and thus likely doing it incorrectly).
As for me not understanding how the spine works, give me five years to complete the kinesiology degree I start on Monday and then I'll get back to you on how much I know right now. Or, you could provide actual information instead of slinging accusations of lack of knowledge, since I happen to have the peculiarity of enjoying learning new things, while at the same time not enjoying people saying I am dumb while simultaneously doing nothing to help me solve that.
On that note, I have never heard of anyone carrying anything on the shoulders while bent over. Care to source that statement?

It isn't like using a 45 pound Oly barbell. ..... as long as you keep you eyes looking up. If you look down you can sure make mess of it.
We often 5-6" wooden fence poles for tan. For some of the arm conditioning stuff a barbells works but can be a little brutal if you aint up to it. Slow and steady wins the race.
Sashi is what I don't like. They hurt the tops of my feet when you do the leg exercises.
