    Even though no one in my gym does overhead press...what is a respectable overhead press? using no leg drive, just strict from the upper chest.

    body weight?

    605lbs. it should be that with 1 year of training, proper diet and essential fatty acids. if youve juiced, it should be at least 810.

    225x5+ I'd say for a serious trainee. The average person won't hit above 185.

    I didn't feel like mine was decent until I hit 225x10. I have seen 405x2 strict off the chest, so my perspective is skewed.

    Just the weak and small are focused on that.

    Thanks Chris. I'm used to seeing 300 + strict press videos which is why I asked.

    Didn't you say you inclined 405? If you can incline 405 you can overhead press way more than 135.

    Never really tried a 1RM overhead press. I just crank out the reps.

    Fresh, I can put up more. But my last set of 10 x 135 seems to feel like 225.

    Anything above 225 is pretty impressive, but 315+ is fucking boss

    You misunderstood me.. I didn't mean for 1rm, I can probably do 135x30 or 40. I've done 135x25-30 after doing 225x12 and I can't incline 405 LMAO.
