Military Press?


#1

New to the forum. Creeping up on my 41st and still grinding them out.

My question is this, how many here has been able to Military Press 130% of their body weight? I read about this strength standard long ago and I can’t exactly remember who wrote about it, but regardless its tough. I am about 10lbs away at the moment but I have to be very careful now due to past shoulder injuries from too much volume with heavy weights.

here is my most recent at 185lbs

130% of 260lbs isn’t going to happen for me lol at 6’3 my arms are just to long to be effective at military press. I can do 185 for reps and push press 315 but a strict military press just isn’t going to happen for me past 245
