    Cool What's an impressive OHP?

    I really don't see many folks around here do this lift and if they do its usually like 90-115 pounds for half reps in the commercial gyms I train at.

    I feel like I've gotten pretty strong at this compared to the lifters around the gyms I train at but am wondering what the strong people around here consider good.

    I feel like genetically i shouldn't be good at this due to having pretty long arms (wing span +7 inches vs height).

    So what's considered impressive to you guys?

    Body weight?
    Body weight for reps?

    I'm generally impressed by anyone that can do bodyweight or more for reps.

    Yep bodyweight to start with is way more than an average gym goer can do.
    Before the bench press came about the overhead press was a standard for upper body strength with the old time lifters.
    The BP put the OHP in the back seat so to speak as far as popularity.
    These days strongman competitors do many type of overhead strength lifts.

    I guess this is something to shoot for. Maybe BW for a 6 reps.

    Current 6rm is -20 pounds my bodyweight but has been increasing 5 pounds every 3 weeks for like 8 cycles.

    I've always liked this nice neat breakdown of "impressiveness":
    • OHP = 1x bodyweight
    • Bench = 1.5x bodyweight
    • Squat = 2x bodyweight
    • Deadlift = 2.5x bodyweight
    It puts them in a nice 2:3:4:5 ratio that is easy to calculate.

    A 2 plate for 3-4 reps OHP on a 200 pound person would impress me instantly. Besides that, it would be relative to the size of the person, the weight pressed, the reps, and the training character. I'm much more impressed by the way people train than the weight they lift.

    Strong presses man! I love the way you do these. Very clean and consistent reps. I've got a 1rm test planned 6 weeks from now and I'll be disappointed with anything under 200.

    Thanks, that was my favorite lift (after squat) before my shoulder bummed out.

    Not sure how you train press, but I made good progress with it on Candito 6 week.

    Weeks 1 & 2
    3 days a week of high volume 4x10

    Week 3
    2 days of heavy weight 3x6

    Week 4
    3 days of lighter weight 3x10

    Week 5
    2 days of heavy 3x6-8

    Week 6
    Test 1rm or skip and start new cycle

    If your training's working for you, then I wouldn't change it until after your 1rm test, but Candito's setup could be useful in the future.

    Mine is pretty low right now as i'm coming back from an injury. Clean & press for 64lbs at 7 reps will wear me out like mad. I normally like to use whatever allows me within 8-12 but I was curious to test a little higher. 75% of bodyweight or higher on overhead press is pretty up there I think - doing really great if that's reached.

    That's excellent. As far as I know, the gold standard is a power clean and strict press with a pair of 75 lb dumbbells for a dozen reps. Expect to lift 10-20% less weight than you can with a barbell.
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    It's easy to not be afraid of tigers when you're sitting in your living room watching a television program about tigers. When you're in the jungle where the tigers are, it's quite a different story.

    Well that's probably because we lift weights at the gym and not on an internet forum. And I can do way more than 90-115 thank you much.

    I've been alternating blocks with high volume and lower intensity with blocks of higher intensity and Lower volume. I have a mental issue where I don't like switching programs unless I'm completely stalled. I know it's not optimal to be on similar program for so long but oh well.

    I would imagine so! Most folks are at the gyms I'm at are trying to get their bench up to 185 for reps which is weak around here so that's why I'm asking!

    I've never tried these with dumbbells but I follow strongman and they do lots of moves like this. I'll love to give standing Dumbell press a try one day with a clean to get into position.

    Isn't this like near world class? Like competitive on a national level for most weight classes?

    Surely unachievable for even the most dedicated who aren't genetic freaks?

    I walk around at about 220-225 when I am just on my regular diet and not cutting. I'm 5-10.

    It's a clean from the floor for every press!
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    It's easy to not be afraid of tigers when you're sitting in your living room watching a television program about tigers. When you're in the jungle where the tigers are, it's quite a different story.

    I'm at about 120 pounds for 5 or 6 reps. But I've alway been pretty weak :-p

    I tend to use a bit of leg push-off on the first rep to get the bar up and in the groove, then all other reps are strict.

    Ha I've noticed this effect but never thought to use a little leg push on the first rep. Usually I keep it strict, but the effect is that if I can get 1 rep then I can get 2 or 3, because the first is so much harder. Imma try out your method as a way to overload.
