Holy ancient thread revival Batman! :shock:

Closer now than I've ever been to bodyweight overhead.

Bodyweight at 100kg and push press at 90kg. It's so close I can taste it. I'm just hoping that what usually happens (my press goes up but my bodyweight stays just ahead) doesn't on this occasion.

I am also within +-10kg bodyweight. Bodyweight overhead would be very very sweet tasting.
Finally a fair race!

Body weight 107 kg, push pressed 100kg the other day. Body weight will be done soon. I'll try push press and work on my jerk technique and try that too.

Loving the start of this thread - buzz claims a 62.5kg strict press (decent) but only a 65kg push :D

I take it the marathon runner legs weren't adding too much in those days :D

JP - race to 1.5 x bodyweight...
