I was just wondering if there was any rules regarding a push press, what is legit and what a fail is? Obviously some are obvious, but i have a dubious lift i'm not sure would pass as i stumbled and stepped forward slightly like an inch before lockout. I managed to finish the lift though.

I would say arms locked out, (some lads struggle to totaly straighten their arms due to injury), and have your feet in line.. As for the push i've not seen 'no lift' given for squatting to low....

As long as there isn't a double dip to lock the weight out then you are ok.

Really? thats a bas***d.

does that go for strongman comps? i thought that pretty much anything goes with regards to getting it overhead?

Overhead = anything goes.

But there is a specific difference between a push press and a jerk.

i would disagree about the feet being inline. quite a few guys push press with a split stance, its still a push press as theres no 2nd dip

Overhead - Getting the object to full overhead extension any how.

Strict press - Pressing the object overhead using only shoulders and triceps, no impetus from the legs or hips, until lockout.

Push press - An initial drive from the legs and hips to get the object moving, followed by a continuation of the movement using your shoulders and triceps only, until lockout, with straight legs.

Jerk - An initial drive from the legs and hips to get the object moving, then once full hip extension has been reached, rebending the hips and knees as you continue locking out the arms. This can be as a power jerk (small dip with feet in line), a split jerk (dip by splitting your feet forward and back, almost into a lunge position) or a squat jerk (deep dip with feet in line)


In competition conditions (strongman) the following stipulations usually apply:
Feet must be in line in order for the lift to be completed.
Head must be pushed through in order for the lift to be completed.

Generally any method can be used for dumbell, block, log and axle. Usually jerks are not allowed for viking press. This does depend on the organiser though.

Hope this helps.

If you want the lift counted in a comp your feet have to be in line..
