Just thought this was an interesting lift and some people might want to take a look. Maybe give it a try.

They just had this paired with 1 arm Deadlifts as a CrossFit workout...hard stuff:


Two rounds of:
Right arm barbell push-press 12 reps

Good Lift. Now do a 220 push press with two hands. I bet you will find it a lot harder.

Was going to say exactly this, my trainer told me we're doing it in the upcoming weeks...

Thanks for the comments guys. Its just something fun to try, not a lift I push or anything. That is interesting that crossfit was recomending it around the same time.

I doubt very seriously I could do a 220lb push press. I am still weak. I hope to be hitting the numbers you are hitting with some are work and dedication Goodwinm.

Nice work. I definitely had visions of the barbell going through your drywall.

I would suggest doing some sandbag/natural rock/tree trunk pressing then.
That is how I have got my shoulders to burst through in strength!
