BTN Press:OHP Press Ratio?

What should be the optimal ratio between standing BTN press and standing overhead press from the front?

There is none.


My BtN is about 80% of my press from in front (with minimal layback). Not to claim I am optimal, but for a data point.

I OHP(standing) 155, and bench 265. Not sure what the ratio is supposed to be but I would think it should be around 75%. Btw I dont train Ohp much and havent maxed on it in a couple months so It could be a bit higher.

I’m too scared to do BTN Press so zero

Never really bothered with BTN, get enough front delt volume through my other push movements and my OHP

As pointed out by @T3hPwnisher their isn’t one. I can second that.
