how much do you get from your leg drive for overhead?

Postby JP » Fri Jul 23, 2010 7:17 am

so my strict is 92.5 currently (old pb 105 was done before the shoulder/pec fuck up), and push press or feeble power jerk attempt is 122.5, so i am getting 30kg/24% from the leg drive.

before my injury the numbers were 105 and 130, so thats 25kg/20%, which is kind of promising :D

My strict press max is 80 kg and judging by how easy a 90 kg push press was, 100 should be doable. Might try it tomorrow.

based on my 5x5 number
Strict: 47.5kg
Push Press: 65kg
So I get 17.5kg or 26% from leg drive (not sure which way you work it out).

1RM I reckon I could strict press 60kg (maybe) push press 1RM is 80kg.
So 20kg from leg drive, about 25% again.

My numbers are similar to yours old man. Technique fail.

Perhaps if I trained in an AWESOME GYM surrounded by THE BEST OLY LIFTERS IN THE UK I might have picked up a slightly better overhead technique though :roll:

The best I have done is 72.5 strict, 85 push and 110 jerk. So that gives 17% increase from legdrive and another 34% from getting under the bar.

Confirmed this the other day. 100 is my new max. Hoping for more soon.

I haven't maxed out on strict press since resuming training, but a push always gave me a lot. My old pbs were 115kg push press and 2x80kg strict, so over 30kg.

i've never tried a 1RM on these. mine will be low. i'll try it this week.

this puts things into perspective. this guy overhead presses for reps more than I squat or DL

strict pressing 315lbs (143kg)
vs Push Press 435lbs (192.5kg)

insane!!

push 47.5kg so 12.5kg or 26.3% increase
