I’m trying to get my shoulders proportional in strength to the rest of my upper body. I’ve only been lifting since July but my shoulders have always been a weak point. I was never able to do standing presses because of a herniated disc, but its been feeling better so I tried them today.
My 1rm max on bench is 255. My 1rm on standing press today was 135 (done strict with no leg involvement)
How out of proportion is this? What would you typically expect a person with a 255 1rm to be able to press? I’m just trying to gauge where I need to be at. If its way off, I’ll do shoulders twice a week.
I have made some gains in shoulder strength on the dumbbells over the last 2 months. My 5x5 went from 30lbs to 50lbs. But they are still comparatively weak to the other guys in the gym who are smaller than me but using 60lb dumbbells.
