      one plate is 20Kg.

      "2pl" means two on each end, so 4*20, or 80Kg. plus the 20Kg bar is 100Kg.

      I don't lift, btw.

    2pl8 OHP is very impressive. Don't listen to all these clowns. Your average gym-goer would probably be able to do 1pl8, and someone highly trained could see 185lbs. OHP difficulty isn't linear, it's parabolic. It gets significantly harder every pound you go up. If you see somebody doing a strict OHP for 2pl8s, they're a fucking monster. That's just a fact.

      >OHP difficulty isn't linear, it's parabolic
      This is true for all lifts but at different points no? That being said I'd say a more appropriate goal/estimation would be 90kg/140/180/220, a 2pl8 press is equivalent to a 3.5 bench imo

      Your average gym-goer can absolutely not do 1pl8 OHP. One of the main reasons no one does them is since they can't ego lift with it.

          or just take the ripp-pill and turn the OHP into a standing, incline bench press. if you want to be fair to ripp, he's teaching people to lift as much weight as possible. he just so happens to be changing the lift entirely for that purpose.

          That's fine, but still no way in hell most could 1 pl8 them and people don't do those autistic copes. I started at 25s and worked my way to 2 plates when I trained hard. Now just maintain with 1 plate.

          I bring the bar to nose level, so arms might be a bit below parallel but it’s whatever. Like I told other poster, I’m not an influencer I don’t have any reason to record my lifts

          You literally just aren't doing it. The bar starts on your chest, goes all the way up, and then you put back onto your chest. That is one rep of OHP. You have done 0 reps of OHP.

          let me get this straight, you're push pressing to get the weight to your nose, pausing, and then completing the press? then you drop the weight back to your chest or you only go as far as your nose before doing the next rep? if it's the latter then you're skipping the initial half of the lift because you're weak as fuck there (because you push press past that ROM) and then you do half reps (which probably don't even get to your nose level) of standing, overhead elbow extensions? kek, i guarantee you have like 4 inches of bar path where you're just slightly dipping the bar towards your face, bouncing to redirect the forces upwards, extending at the elbow slightly, and not getting anywhere close to lockout while calling that an OHP and counting the rep.

          [...]

          kek. so you're saying just getting into the initial OHP position is a struggle for you? your mobility is so fucking dogshit that you actually feel a straining when you're at the bottom? guaranteed you're "that guy" at the gym who everyone seethes at for wasting time in a rack while you pretend to do an exercise.

            Idk how to explain this any easier for you, you’re pretty retarded if I’m being honest.
            1. Bar goes on chest
            2. Use a bit of leg push to get it up at lockout
            3. Drop bar down to nose level
            4. Without using any leg push bring bar back to lockout at top

            It’s pretty simple. Could I just do it just straight up from chest level? Probably. But the added strain on the tendons could literally just rip it off the socket at that weight regardless of how much muscle and it just isn’t worth the risk. Idk why it makes you so mad

              Because you came saying you lift a certain amount of weight but you outright do it wrong. It's literally the same thing as quarter quarter repping a squat and saying you do 5 plates. You cut out the hardest part of the lift. And then you cope about it being dangerous to do it correctly, outright confirming that your mobility is too shit to do it right. If you pull a tendon from a front rack position with 225lbs you're utterly weak as fuck.
