        Yup, long arms.

        That's a myth, long arms usually means wide shoulders and high test. You'll probably breeze through weight once you're going heavier.

        It's always people built like a fridge with short arms and narrow shoulders who don't have high bench potential.

        Not sure about high test but I definitely have wide shoulders.

        It's true, I speed ran the bench. I simply couldn't accept existing as a sub2pl8 benching mongrel. The rep itself when the day came was decent, form didn't break down just a slight grind at the transition point between chest and tri's.
        OHP was whatever, came for free after speed running the bench I didn't even do the lift.
        Everything else I did for reps, I'm not comfortable doing true maxes on squats and deadlifts.

              Preferably you dump it before it turns into a moronic crooked grind for 10 seconds. Or you don't, depends on how much you want it. A true 1RM is never going to look textbook pretty, you can train to get it "passable" but that doesn't involve technical repetition at easy weights.

        It's also the easiest to cheat. You can easily squeeze an extra 20 lbs by leaning back a bit and recruiting your chest. Naturally bad posture (kyphotic/rounded back IIRC) also achieves the same thing.

    I always find getting the OHP or squat first very sus, as in you're doing a god awful folded over squat shy of depth, or a OHP that is actually a push press or some olympic standing bench press variation.
    You can fraud bench too, but everybody does bench so awareness of what is considered a standard good rep is higher. Frauding a deadlift is impossible, you can lift like an butthole but it doesn't benefit you in any way. Unless you pull sumo, which is something you should preface.

      Nothing sus about it
      I notice that everyone has 1 or 2 lifts they're just better at, for whatever reas9n, whether body mechanics, psychology, whatever
      For me ohp was ridiculously easy to reach and haven't gotten the others yet but I'm not far on dead and bench
      Definitely not push pressing and not a wild lean back. It just came easier for some reason

      Nobody cares about OHP because its neither impressive nor a particular valuable lift to have in your training. Anyone that benches regularly can hit a 60kg OHP, its not impressive in the slightest unless you are a woman. Which makes your entire argument moot because only the weaklings on IST even call it 1/2/3/4, everyone only uses 2/3/4 as a strength standard

      • 3 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        I'm just calling bullshit on the people claiming to OHP 1.5pl8 when they can't bench 2pl8. Even with the shittiest bar path and no setup you should be able to brute force 2pl8 for a single even if you never trained chest in your entire life, your chest only needs to pick up +20kg and your triceps is in a better mechanical position with a much shorter and more stable kinetic chain. It just doesn't make sense in any other context than the OHP being a push press.

          I mean I agree with you that people on here inflate the shit out of their OHP numbers. If you bench 80 or even 100kg OHP you probably have a decent bench.
          I was focused more on the part that I don't find a 60kg OHP ohp particularly hard to do when I was a beginner benching 90kg I could still get a 60kg, and a 1.5 ratio also seems to be quite normal.

        Would also like to know. Currently stalling at 175 for 4x6

        I know it's going to sound boring, but honestly just eat more food and keep practicing your bench. Right now I do 3x3 until I can hit it two workout sessions in a row. Then I add 10 lbs and do 3x1, increasing that to 3x1,1,2, 3x1,2,2 and so on until I can hit 3x3. I also bench lighter weight (for me 2.5 plates) for 3x8 on a lighter weight day. Remember, 3.5 is a 1RM for me.
        If you're under 2 plates I'd recommend following any linear progression program. Strong Lifts, Phraks, Starting Strength. You'll get there eventually. The most important things are to eat, rest, and continually keep adding weight. It's not a race.

    My life has already been decided for me based on height and face. I'm a manlet with an unremarkable face, I have always been disregarded and ignored by everyone around me. I've never truly had a single conversation with anyone, nobody listens to me or takes me seriously, I say a funny joke once in a blue moon and then people just talk at me for the rest of the time. I have never really been approached by women or people looking to be friends, I've never had a woman show interest in me, I've never had sex or been in a relationship, my only friend group got bored of my unfunny shift and abandoned me. I could die now and it would cause more happiness than anything. No amount of lifting will make up for being an average manlet in current year, everyone is repulsed by me. I'm completely outcast from life and I will die alone. Manlets never win no matter what you do
