    Anyone here push press?

    If so how much? Just wondering as it's not a very common lift.

    I've only tried it a few times while doing sets of military presses just to see what sort of difference it makes. I can do around 100 doing military presses and have gotten 140 up once before push pressing.

    I've never maxed out.. In fact... The only push presses I've done are at the end of a tough set of millitary presses when I can't get it up strict anymore.

    I have done 405 pretty much with no leg drive. I wish I could get my legs more involved with this lift.

    When you say push press, what do you mean exactly? What kind of setup.

    Umm... The setup where you are on your feet and you press a bar overhead with the help of leg-drive.

    Ya that's it.
    Instead of doing standing millitary I'm changing to cleans and push press. I think they are a better lift for true real life strength.

    405 is insane. If I could do that much weight every time I went anywhere I would press the largest person there so people know whose boss. On a side note, are the 2 people that put 480 serious?!

    There is a video of it on Ironscene.com if I am not mistaken. It is CRAZY! He is an incredible presser.

    Vinny, I know you're referring to push press, but if you're not getting much leg drive, you have to be close to the world record in the standing overhead press. Have you drilled form on this exercise?

    I trained it for a strongman (not a NAS) I was in. So it's not something I do often.

    Here's a vid of the 400 in competition. It was a couple of years ago. I think I used my legs more than I thought.
