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.
i feel like this was pretty strict.
A fair amount of lean back, but still no leg drive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nJrYPVJ88M

Exactly what I was looking for! Thanks. Beastly.
Solid and inspiring!
157 kg there
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
I found this extremely impressive
