Im 6’5’’ (270 lbs, so not skinny…) and see a dramatic difference in my pushing and pulling strength, - and have a hard time increasing the pushing…this goes for both upper (bench press) and lower body (squats).
I havent tested 1RM on anything but squats (needed that for Coach Davies “Nitro Squat program”), but here are some numbers to compare
Full back squat 185 lbs (1RM)
Full front squat 165 lbs (1RM)
Bench press 180 lbsx3
Romanian deadlift 225x4 (last workout, can be increased)
Sumo deads 270+ lbs x4 (last spring, havent done in a while)
Waterbury walks 240+ lbs x4 (last spring, havent done in a while)
Am I just destined to be weak in pushing, stronger in pulling or is there anyway of targeting this smartly…? Any kind of special “Tall Guy” training I can do ?
