      Hit 130x3, followed by 135x1 strict (no push / heel bounce) a couple days ago, could probably do ~140x1 max effort. Wanna hit bodyweight fairly soon.

      I've always had strong shoulders compared to my other lifts. My flat bb bench is only 165x5. .:-:.


      So what's your OHP? (and bench if you feel like it, since people always seem to relate the two)

      I only do bb standing. When I do db's I usually do seated, bishes be mirin'.

      edit: 20kg's? I'm gonna have to try seated sometime, that's a huge difference.

      I hit 220 for 3 reps today, seated. I prefer standing (it was harder at first, but at this point I feel more stable) but all the barbells were taken outside the seated OHP rack at my school gym.

      Anyone know why seated tends to be higher than standing? It seems like it should be the other way around.

      Standing = more weight shifted throughout the whole body (like leg drive in benching)
      Seated = weight directly applied to shoulders (which should make for a weaker lift)

      Enlightened people enlighten me.

      I like standing better, as I feel more stable with it now. However, when I first started, and I think this is the case for a lot of people, there's a core element added to it.

      The first time I did standing OHP's, I shook violently on weights I'd done seated. I might as well have been epileptic, no joke, it was awful and I was humbled. As I figured out form cues and just kept doing them in general, they got better and better. So for most people, it's just more stable.
