Push Press PR

#1 Postby tylerm » Tue Nov 15, 2005 6:57 pm

Got 185 lb up for a push press PR by 10 lb. I have only been doing these for 2 months or so, and just had a 25 lb PR a few weeks back. I am aiming for my bodyweight of 215 lb, so I will see what I can do by the year's end. It is a little competition over at veganfitness.net to see who can get their bodyweight overhead first (aside from several people who already can). I have gained 5 lb in the last few weeks though, so I am making it tougher on myself :wink:

Hi there Tyler,

What is a Push press by 10 lbs? What does that mean? Not Push Ups right? And if it is pushups, how many reps?

Kollision, I got a Personal Record at 10 lb over my previous record. A push press is a standing overhead barbell press using a bit of leg drive. I got 185 lb for a single today, a couple weeks ago I maxed out at 175 lb.

By the look of your arms you can probably strict press it :D But I will get there.

Thanks for the compliment Tyler. If what I understand from your explanation and from what Bigbwii says, then I know what you are talking about. That's an Olympic lift and it's pretty hard to pull it off especially if no one taught you. That's some great stuff man, congratz! Good luck on your next PR man!

Not exactly I think because with a push-press you dont duck under the bar like you would in a jerk?

Anyway, great work tyler :D !
