RE: Can you pass Mark Rippetoe's Combat Fitness Test?
I think you guys are underestimating just how long a 75%bw strict press can take for a relatively tall guy to develop. Look at General stalin's progress thread to see how long it can take for a decently strong and sizeable guy to hit that kind of weight. A .75x bw strict press is a good lift for guys who are not serious athletes (as most soldiers are not).

Likewise a 2xbw deadlift. By lifting standards, outside strength sports, that is a very strong lift and you only see a handful of people in real life who can do it.
