    I didn't even notice the post regarding your numbers OP... but 395 on the military press is an absolute impossibility. Not even remotely plausible. Professional strongmen cannot do a strict military press of 400lbs. Derek Poundstone can only hit a push press for 2 @ 400. Hell I can pull a 600 deadlift, 515 squat and 335 bench and I couldn't dream of such an OHP.

    Unless you're competing, what the fuck is the point of putting up big numbers like that? I love working out, but I'd rather not risk injury...

    my cousin posts on here and has seen me do 225 30 times.

    THIS...sorry kunk but you may be lifting 475 ounces or whatever...no way you are lifting that much. Not trying to be an ass but I'm working with our football team while in school and some of them are monsters and don't lift what you claim.

    again not trying to be an ass but the dude in the pic below couldn't bench 250 7 times.

    the ph are just the appetizer. i don;t like pins around cause of wife and kids but am also running deca and sustenon in very small amounts

    Pro hormones are terrible for your body; much worse than proper usage of an anabolic steroid; and I have done both. If you plan to use enhancement AAs just go all out and get yourself a nice bulking stack with injections and stop being scared of the needle. You're doing worse for yourself now.

    And M1T is one of the worst. I only mention it because some previous posters brought it up.

    Just to be sure, are you saying that you can do 4 45lb plates PER side (8 plates total) plus a 45 pound bar on this exercise?

    ^yes, admittedly on a smith cause there's no way to spot. smith in my gym is 25 lbs on it's own. so i guess in actuality it is 385. ordinarily will pyramid from 15 x 225, 12 x 275, 10 x 315, 8 x 335, 6 x 360 and 3-4 x 385.

    fwiw, there are 4 other guys in my gym who can do it, all i guess are shorter or fatter but this just doesn;t seem so insane to me as i saw a 775 rack pull last night which made my lower back cry.

    I've never seen military press on a smith. Is that even possible?

    Smith is no where near 385lbs with plate weight. Stabilization is completely negated. Do a max bench/squat and see how much more you can do on the smith. But I still don't believe you can pump out a single rep of 8 plate military press, bitch machine or not. But prove me wrong homie, prove me wrong. In fact, i'll settle for a 305 OHP.

    kunk,

    sorry to suggest this - but could the level of excersize and the various suppliments have anything to do with the feeling of frustrations that you have been having latly?

    i wish globe, i think it's just mostly that business is shitty, as it is for most people i've spoken to. nearly all my irl friends are entrepreneurs and we are all in very similar boats with similar feelings right now.

    My good friend. Twice your size, strongman, trained for years. 265lbs...couldn't dream of such an OHP and would probably struggle with 465x7. I'm around guys 3x your size all day and they don't push out 400 pound military presses. That's pretty much why I think you're lying. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqx1s...eature=related and just for giggles: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzNKo...eature=related I'll stop arguing about it though... just lemme know when you have your promised vids up and i'll apologize for sure.

    why do you hang around 675lb men all day?
