Any Good Strict Press Videos?


#1

I was just wondering if anybody has seen any videos of guys out there strict overhead pressing basically anything over 300lbs. By strict, I mean zero leg drive. I've seen plenty of big guys pushing 300+, even for reps, but inevitably there is always a touch of leg drive to start the motion. I am in no way discrediting the feat of sheer strength, it just leaves me wondering if there are guys out there who can match the numbers on a strict lift.

A fair amount of lean back, but still no leg drive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nJrYPVJ88M

Go to Marunde and look through the media archives if you want to see some huge presses, strict or otherwise. That site humbles me on a daily basis.

Best Press ever I believe (some lean but no leg drive)

That was insane. Seeing an 800 lb deadlift etc is seriously impressive - pushing 507 lbs overhead no bull is superhuman. The absolute strongest guys on this site are pressing less than 2/3 that weight off a rack with no clean and that's incredible. 507lbs. From the FLOOR. WOW. Bring this event back. I wouldn't have believed that lift had I not seen it.

Skiracer - I concur, that is likely the impressive feat of strength I have ever seen on video or in person
