    Overhead press used to be one of the contested olympic lifts, I'm sure you could dig it up if you googled it.

    Quick google brough up this site which says 535, but I wouldn't take it at face value

    Tough to say ...

    The reason the clean and press is no longer contested as an olympic lift is because it's too hard to judge. Technically, you're not supposed to do it with ANY leg drive and with your back perpendicular to the floor. But every person in the world will bend a bit when trying to put 500 pounds+ over their heads. The question is "when does 'a bit' become 'too much'?" and there's no real objective way to judge that.

    I don't know what the "official record" was before they stopped contesting it ... but a little over 500 pounds sounds about right.

    Any strict overhead press over 400 pounds is incredible ... 500 is unbelievable.

    Strongest guy I know of right now is a gentlemen by the name of Dru Patrick. He's done seated presses in the 450 pound range, taking the weight at chest level in a power rack.

    I've always said if I could get Kara to come out on the platform and slap my face before a lift like she does for Mendelsohn I'd be benching 700 raw too.

    Or maybe I just want her to put her hands on me.

    Pretty sure that's no more than 240 or so. Those are bumper plates correct?\

    Edit: Actually Im pretty sure that weight is less than 225. but Kara can do above 225 on militaries

    That is really impressive either way. I feel like such a turd topping out at 160x5.

    Depending on seated or standing etc it will vary a great amount. The most i've done seated was 315 so being on the low end of the strength arena I would be willing to bet the most would be at least 2x that(or damn close)

    The olympic clean and press was just that, an olympic press. A correct military press is done with the feet together "at attention." Ala "military" press. Your back is not suppose to bend or push away. I don't know what the record is for the lift, because so many people confuse the types of pressing.

    Kara's military press is like 165 she is using bumper plates so it looks like more but thats what it is. She said it somewhere. Still mighty impressive.
    The olympic press involves using the lower back to help catch the weight like most people use the leg to help get under the weight in the clean and jerk. They lean way back making it almost a bench press.
    If you watch videos of the Olympic lifts you see this is a lot different from a military press.

    I think Kara slaps Kennelly, the chick slapping Mendy is usually Shawna Mendolsohn, his sister.
    At least I'm pretty sure that's right.

    Yea, it prob is... I remember seeing an article in Ironman Mag (yes, I used to subscribe to BB mags, shameful secret) with her spotting Kennelly.

    Either way my first statement stands.

    In the comments on the video, Kara said it was 2 bumper plates (which are 45's) plus the change (which I think are 5's), plus the bar. So that's 235. Amazing any way you look at it.

    Not at all. Just because it's a bumper plate doesn't mean it's a 45lbs plate. But you're right about the change, except I'm pretty sure they're 5kg, not pounds. Although for a woman, it's darn good, she's only pressin' 154lbs tops. She's also using a woman's olympic bar, so I'm not sure if they weigh the same as a guys. I'm assuming it does. Not trying to be harsh here, just the truth.

    (By the way, I'm not picking on you. Just telling everyone who posted any weight they thought she did.)
    "Rather, train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. " 1 Timothy 4:7-8

    Womens oly bars weigh 15 kilos

    And I agree, I have 15 pound bumper plates that look exactly like 45s.

    But I'm not trying to put down her lifts, there is no denying she is strong

    Really?? I always thought they were less, just never knew how much. So I guess that really makes her doing roughly 143lbs. Still darn, freakin' good.

    (Those bumper plates are 10kg apiece. Just to clarify for everyone so you all don't have to do the math:

    4 x 10kg = 40kg + 15kg(bar) = 55kg + 10kg(change) = 65kg x 2.2 = 143lbs)

    yep taken from wikipedia

    A women's Olympic bar is similar to the men's bar, but is shorter (2.05 m) and lighter (15 kg) with a thinner grip section (25 mm). Also in contrast to the men's bar, the women's bar does not sport a center knurl.
    I didn't know they were shorter and thinner as well

    Yeah, I was going to say Ken Patera.

    That would have been a standing press tasking the bar out of racks

    the dropped the press after the '72 olympics because people had gotten so good at cheating that it was impossible to judge it anymore, lol

    here is a great site with tons of clips etc http://www.chidlovski.net/liftup/e_movie_theater.asp

    the olympic press looked like a real backbreaker, lol http://www.chidlovski.net/liftup/web...ess_techniques

    I think it's safe to assume that the record for a decent miltary press without much cheating is somewhere around or at least close to 500 lbs.

    (By the way, I'm not picking on you. Just telling everyone who posted any weight they thought she did.)
    You may very well be right. I know that bumper plates are all the same diameter no matter what the weight. I just thought Kara said it was 235. Looking back, she didn't say that, it was someone else. But it didn't seem impossible - her numbers are almost double mine:

    551 squat
    http://youtube.com/watch?v=tH7-JeDEdLU

    402 bench
    http://youtube.com/watch?v=Wpw-NcYXDIQ

    501 deadlift
    http://youtube.com/watch?v=EeXww0PMMA8

    ...admittedly with boatloads of equipment.

    Patera did press 505-1/2. I believe it was in 1971.

    Will look around later.

    Yeah, but I probably would have red-lighted him. Andre's feet and legs were not locked out evenly over Patera's head, nor did he lower the weight under control.

    I guess that is pretty good. I was doing 2 sets of 8 with 405 on the bench and 3 sets of 9-10 at 225 on standing military press until I messed up my shoulder. Now it's all rehab. ; ( Though at 6'5 325 it's probably not as impressive because I can't get my hair into pony tails like that.
