I would like to see anyone on this site post a video of them handling 225 lbs EASILY in the STANDING overhead press.  I would also like to see a video of anyone EASILY handling over 250 lbs in the seated press.

These are certainly not impossible lifts but they are very good and pretty rare.

Seated no problem.  I never stand and do military.  I've gone up to 315 but my shoulder tweeked out and luckily heald ok.  I usually just do 225 for reps now and hit heavy dumbells.

i want to know wtf is up with people calling out for videos of some ordinary lifts with regular old weights?  Huh i mean really..ya'll gotta be some highschool jv swim team mother fuckers to not move some of this stuff...either that or you just dont know how to train and eat right...225 and even 250 on seated presses are STAPLE in decent shoulder workouts...give it a rest.


i'm permitted one meltdown a month right? hey if chicks can do it then why can't i?

In my case it is meant to be taken as sarcasm (not the persona on here, but rather tongue in cheek) as some of the threads and the wanted responses are stupid. Who cares about a 225 shoulder press? Or a 315 bench?

I know maybe they are milestones for some, but, to come on here and brag about them to me is pointless and jeuvenille so I have some fun with it.

After 5 years of natural training i could hit 3 smooth reps with 225 doing standing overhead press with knees "locked" after cleaning it from the floor...seated i remember hitting 275 for a few.

honestly i find it "extremely" hard to believe a natural could press the 120 DBs or better with full range of motion. that would be unreal, but i guess it could happen.

Cool

I haven't been in a gym to train for over a month now since getting kicked out.  Last week I was in Hilo at the gym we are doing over there.  There was 225 in the power rack.  I was sitting on the bench talking to the guys and leaning against the bar while talking.  One of the guys asked me if I coudl do that. I said I should but I haven't lifted in a month.  I ws doing an easy 10 to 15 reps with 225 before getting kicked out so I figured I should be able to do this at least once.  So I tried it.  And all I could get was one.  If I wanted toblow a nut I could have done 2.  I can't believe how weak I got in such a short time.  Unreal. I will be starting from square one again once I get back.

Maybe because in the new gym they actually had some real plates.

Its weird but me too I have always been really strong on dumbells. I've done 95 pounders x 6 for shoulder presses pyramided.

it's back on page 2 or 3, he reminds me of every 16 inch armed jackass who claims big weights and when you see them they're doing quarter reps, there's a young guy in my gym juiced to the gills who claims 315 on barbell seated presses and then he did them one day and i kid you not he lowered the bar to the top of his head, hahahahahahahaha, are you kidding me?

i consider anything over 185 for 6 for FULL REPS, and that means all the way down below the chin and up to fully locked out to be impressive for a natural.

obviously i mean a TOTALLY LIFETIME NATURAL guy of normal height and bone structure, a 250lb. juicer would be in a different league or at least should be but i believe in Stuart McRoberts poundage and bodyweight goals for a lifetime natural, 300lb. bench, 450lb. squat, 500lb. deadlift, 175 for 6 full reps on seated shoulder presses and 195lb. bodyweight at average height and relatively lean are good goals.

most people cheat on shoulders and do them on a decline seated, or partial range of motion.

I opt to use less weight then dicking around with heavy.

Even for naturals it is all relative to weight. A natural guy who weighs 250 should be able to push 185 for 6 fairly easily.
