What is your weakest lift??

Naturally you're more likely to Squat more than you Bench, and Deadlift more than you Squat, but overall, what do you consider to be your weakest lift?

In my case it's got to be the Overhead Press. My current 5RM is 125lbs w/ barbell, and progress is a bear.

    Well I'm around "novice" on bench press and DL but close to "intermediate" on OHP and squat based on this


    I think I'm weaker on DL because my hip bursitis sets me back on that one more so than on squatting (I've had to take the past 2 weeks off DLs but squats have been fine, for example) and I'm weaker on BP because I started it quite a bit later. Over head pressing and squatting are also the lifts that I always look forward to doing the most :love: But, yea, it takes me forever to move up on weight on OHP too.

    Yeah, strict OHP makes me so mad. I feel pretty good about myself on everything else, and then I feel like a little b!tch when it comes to those. I'm not so great at snatches either (it's just an awkward motion for me), but I'm getting better.

    Def would be OHP... Very little progression in the last 9 weeks.

    I struggle with anything that isolates the shoulders. Very stubborn muscles for me.

    Definitely over head press. I failed with the bar my first time. LOL I think I only did 5/4/3/3/4 or something. It was bad. :embarassed:

    Anything to do with my hamstrings. I keep pulling them. Then they have to recover, and don't exercise em again for a bit and back to square one.

    OHS! My mobility won't allow too much.

    OHP is my lowest weight (70lbs) but I feel good doing them. I'm benching 90lbs but it ALWAYS feels really, really hard. So I'll say that bench is my weakest lift.

    Bench press - 600+ squat, but just broke 270 on bench. Too much work on throwing, not enough lifting.

    I bench more than I overhead press, but my bench is weaker.
