Pete, I personally think standing up and press from clavicles to lockout, with no knee push.

60 and 80 is fine Mon. I had suggested 100 in the rules as I know some of you are superb pressers, but could this be too heavy?

100 is too difficult in my opinion unless you start pushing from your legs. 60 - 80 is perfect. We have been trying hard over the last few weeks to add weight to a perfect standing lift with no legs getting involved.
I will give this ago this week and post on you tube.

I usually find the first rep of the set the hardest when strict pressing. I find if I unrack and have a little bounce even if I let the bar drop back to my clavicles and dont give it any momentum from my legs it will go up easier I`m assuming its some kind of stretch reflex with helps ehich is presumably why I find pressing easier when I clean the weight rather than take it from the racks.

Its like benching from the pins set at chest. The first rep from the bottom with no momentum is harder.

100kg is fine if push pressing, or seated. But no way standing strict.

60 and 80 I think will be like the bench at 100 and 140. It will test the endurance at 60, and the stronger pressers at 80.

To go for PBs Im predicting myself 20x60 and 10x80!

Would 100 be allowed with a little bounce then & make 60 and 80 strict?

Im totally up for a 100kg push press challenge!!!

Though its not strict of course as a bodybuilding lift could be. But there is a place for cheat reps and push presses in muscle building after all.

For fun I think its a good idea. Even if its not on the main leaderboard, its a good idea if people can do it.

I will guarantee you 6 reps of 100kg military press with a bounce. I challenge any man to have a go!

(I love smack talk!)

I reckon Jamie or Strange1 can beat 6.

Interesting Glen! Is it dangerous?

I suppose not if you maintain core control as you lean back and then fire your abs appropriately to boost up.

Might try it!

yes and no,

there is a great article by bill starr on it I read a while back - he states if you get the technique right and fats enough it doesnt look like your push pressing but you get the same effect
