ok...i am no where near, but i thought i might as well get on the table. My bodyweight is 85 at last check, and my current max Push Press is 60kg, but that is for multiple reps. Might have a go at some 1 rep maxs tonight....i'm sure they'll be shit tho. I've kind of lost faith in my OH pressing

Really easy 5 lb PR today at 190 lb, failed twice on 200 lb, I know I am good for it when fresh. This is at a bodyweight of 224.5 lb, so I have a while to go yet.

Congratulations JP, that's a huge milestone.

100 kg is my next big goal, I hope to get it sometime this year.
