I did 275x5 front squat as a max and almost passed out, 2 months off plus flu over xmas/nye was killer
Good luck on your recovery brother. Flu is nasty around here right now, half of our office is out sick.

You both should be proud, thats great work so far! Keep it up.


I picked up a precor amt and freemotion cable crossover for my wife (the cross is also for me, lol) this weekend and ordered an edge fitness safety squat bar. My home gym is still a little bare bones compared to how it was before we moved but I've got the most important pieces, dumbbells, rack, plates, a few special bars and a hammer leverage leg press and iso row.

Need a solid bench, maybe a GHR and possibly a hammer wide chest press to round it out. Government auctions are crazy cheap but waiting for good stuff to come around takes forever!

I can't believe I'm posting this. There should be a way to mask my username lol...Anyways, never lifted a day in my life until I started crossfit 2 years ago. Played basketball competitively until I was a senior in high school. Intramurals in college. Park/Rec until I was 26. Then got married, had kids and it's been downhill from there until I found crossfit at 36. Now 38 and those are my PR's lol.

Does anyone think I can go up from those numbers above? I have a feeling being in my late 30's the testosterone levels are starting to drop.

imo 90% of healthy 18-40ish year old men can get to around 275-315 bench, 385-405 squat and 455-495 deadlift.

Injuries will affect that.

There are outliers but if you have terrible genetics then chances are you wouldn't be lifting weights anyway.


In your late 30's you should imo look into TRT, I've been on it for 5 years or so at a replacement dose and it's way better than the alternative.

I think you will be surprised at how you will progress. Try to make slow and steady increases. There are guys in their late 50’/60’s at my box hitting PR’s all the time.

Agreed, I think those numbers are a bit high for someone of his age and size. It would take awhile to get there with a lot of time and proper programming for numbers like that in Dead Squat Bench. And he does CF and they don’t emphasize those lifts. You would have to put in extra time on your own to make it happen. Especially since so much time is put towards the Oly lifts which are very technical and require proper mechanics. I will say CF has been slowly moving away from them, mainly because of the injury rate for the normal Crossfitter. But they are fun to do and watch when done correctly! Most importantly don’t get caught up chasing numbers....it can do more harm then good.

Standing barbell shoulder press? Doesn't narrow it down much lots of press moves you can be strict about.

What's the advantage over just doing a seated press , takes legs out. I've done both standing just tends to create more back arch and can cheat as failing for more reps.

Seated takes a lot of the core aspect out of the lift. The standing barbell press in CrossFit and strength and conditioning is the true test of overhead pressing strength. Strength coaches like Mark Rippetoe think it’s just as important as the squat/bench/Deadlift.

Plus in CrossFit it’s all about doing exercises that will translate to others. Standing pressing strength leads to better push pressing, push-jerks, split jerks, hand stand push ups, etc.

He is correct. Crossfit uses the OH strict press as part of the “Crossfit Total” combined with Squats n DLs. Any standing movement overhead engages the core thus greatly increasing core strength. Which translates to many other movements. If you want a strong core start doing OH movements not seated. My best numbers hit come when my core is at its strongest...period!

The only down side is CF uses ALOT of shoulder pressing type movements and other shoulder exercises in consecutive workouts which can wear down shoulder joints quicker then normal. It is very easy to develop shoulder and elbow type injuries if you are not careful.

Nice man!!

It seems to be one of the weaker lifts for most people. I hit 205# strict for 2 raw a few days ago...still cutting though, so I'm sure I could hit 225#+ raw if I had enough calories in my system

Personally, strict OHP is all about technique / how explosive you can be. What's helped me tremendously is keeping tight (closer grip, narrow stance, activating your core, and pushing through your balls : )...deep breath in, engage your core, activate your posterior chain, barbell to your chest, and explode up

Will try to get vid next time to show what my technique is like...

Edit: also, Mark Rippetoe's the GOAT. I think he's said Strict OHP is more important than bench, and I couldn't agree more...

Yeah no good I've been dealing with shoulder for long ass time. Don't wanna aggravate it. I can do a lot of the moves but putting a crossfit workout in would just mess it up.

Did a strict press just for shits with 135, pretty easy. Guessing 175-185 probably doable.
