Default Results of a bench press / OHP survey

I wanted to find out the relation between the bench press and overhead press maxes of gym-goers. Elliott Hulse was kind enough to help me get a good sample!

Here are the results to the informal survey I carried out.

Interestingly I found quite a large variation in ratios of bench to OHP 1RMs, most probably due to differences in skill level and technique.

I probably should have centered the survey more around the 5RM and 10RM ratios, which more accurately model everyday gym behaviour.
