Default strict pressing your bodyweight

Who's done it? If you have....what did you do training wise to get there?]

If you haven't how far away are you and what are you doing to get there?

I've been stuck at a 225 strict press for 5-6 months and i'm looking for ideas to up my press

I have not strict pressed my weight. but, I would ask.. where are you stuck? right off the rack position? lockout? half way up? the answer to that will help in determining what to do to get past 225.

I did the other day, but I'm only 200lbs. My problem is that my push/press, push/jerk, and strict press aren't that different for a 1RM.

Just incase anyone is wondering how one gets to an astonishing 200lbs log press. Log press twice a week. One day is push it up by any means neccessary and the other day is strict pressing. Since pressing is my weak weak weak point I will be staying tuned for advice.

I've done it. JV used to say that you can't consider yourself a good presser till you could do your BW for 10. He also claimed that all of the old time oly lifters could do that.


Quit benching and spend alot of time with a bar over your head. keep it simple. just strict press alot. basic periodization always works for us.

Yeah, I can do it. At about 220, I strict press 235. Personally, I like lots of volume on OHP for no good reason other than it seems to work for me.

Chris, my training partner has the same problem of little separation between his strict and push presses. At 197, he can do 230 and 240 respectively. His problem, though, is he lacks flexibility and the only point of contact with the bar during a push is his hands. Since the arms they're attached to are not 100% rigid, he'll never get maximum efficiency out of his leg drive. We're trying to get to where he's comfortable with the bar across his shoulders, but it's slow going.

I've done 305 strict on a cambered squat bar at a BW of 295-300. I don't know what I would get on a straight bar. My upper body days are pretty simple. One day is overhead on the cambered bar for heavy sets of 5, 3, or rarely a max. Then I do some kind of bench press, usually close grip or power grip, for sets of 3-7. My other day looks about the same but I bench first, and sometimes do seated over head partials instead of a full press. I do upper back on one day and lats on the other.

So, if I get more flexible I will be a better log presser? More overhead squats and snatches?

I can do around bodyweight but I weigh 230, to strengthen the lower end I've used alot of rambo pressing, for the top -seated rack lockouts, and kettlebell pressing has also helped out alot.
