    Lately I feel like I am not as strong as I should be, or could be or whatever. Sure- injury, injury, injury blah blah blah. I am trying to get an idea of how accurate my body dismorphia and training inferiority complex is.

    I really don't 1rm because i train alone and am sick of getting hurt but these are my latest heavy totals... these are not my pr's, but I am only interested in where people are today. My today numbers
    Bench 365 x 3
    Squat 385 x 5 (sad)
    Dead 455 x 2 (and 1/2 :)
    Barbell row 225 x 8
    Military press 155 x 11 or so- I go easy on shoulders. They hurt.

    How bad can you make me look?

    I haven't been a "heavy guy" since I was a kid (that'll change soon ;) ).

    My claim to fame is incline bench 315x10 last year.. Flat bench has always sucked because I never do it..

    Squat, 365x8 earlier this year..

    Dead, never attempted more than 315..

    I've never done a barbell row..

    Don't like military press... Behind the neck press I could do 225 for a few reps months ago...

    Those are not today's numbers as noted... I do not have any numbers today.. :(

    Yes, there's so much more to lifting than AAS. Your lifts are impressive. I've been trying to hit 315 for over a year now and no matter what I can't get there.

    I am stalled out too. I know the secret to my coveted 405 is in my tricep work, but I fucking hate arm isolation. I do what I have to do to not look deformed- and back, legs and chest are like orgasms to work out.

    I found a training partner for next cycle in October (jballz please stand up!) And he is the arm king. I never have seriously trained with anyone and never trained with anyone who was on gear before- I am fucking pumped. I'm doing an eq, test, tbol cycle and I am truly looking to take my physique from "I think that guy takes steroids" to " arrest that steroid junkie". I want my numbers at 415, 500, 600 b, s, d. By end of year. Impossible? Maybe. My prs were 385, 475, 525. I am hoping muscle memory gives me a push.

  14. shit you're a beast bro, you say your squat is sad but you're tall, do you go parallel or ass to grass? I would think you maybe could pull a lil more on your deads given your other numbers but hell then you just said your starting a cycle in OCT so if these are where you are at when you're off/cruising that shit sounds pretty fuckin solid to me. cheers man

    5'10 73.5 inch reach. 237 around 10 % my best was flat bench raw 495 for 8 reps. I was 265 at the time. I now work out alone also and after my shoulder tears and about a year off I no longer lift heavy. My current lifts bench 305 3 set of 12 after 1 warm up with 225 for 25. I superset my flat bench with 365 for 12 on my powertec. Squats I did for the first time in a year tonight since now I have a good rack. 405 for 3 sets 10 reps (90 degrees no lower). I do rows kind of different bent over about 60 degrees reverse grip 315 for 20 then I will do singles rows on a bench with a straight bar using single arms with 135 for 12 - 15 reps. Not sure on miltary press will do them tomorrow. I have been doing them on my power tec 270 for 15. Straight bar tomorrow yea! Deads I seldom do.
    Best ever pr all raw just a tank top. Bench 495 for 8, Squats 585 for 8, Standing military press 315 for 3, Shrugs on a bet I did 900 for 4 reps( the gym owners were pissed this bar was fuked and it was blamed on someone else) . Just some.

    Brutus79 my friend those are pretty nice lifts. Specially for some one that is 6'2. I'm 5'5 almost a whole foot shorter but being shorter helps out with the power lifting.
    Mine are
    9% body fat

    Bench- 415lbx1
    Squats-405lbx1 I know weaker than bench haha
    Dead lift- I stay at 315x8 don't want to fuck up my back
    Shoulder press- not sure I can do 225lb 5 sets 8-10 reps

    Damn that's a crazy bench, especially for your size. I went to school with a couple short Samoans but they were strong as fuck too. They set the bench press record in 2002 and it still hasn't been broken.

    I would love to see a dude working out in cowboy boots and pressing 1000+ you need to take a pic of that shit.

    If you have good gear and a solid program you're golden. Those are some serious PR's. I just ran Titans under dosed gear and think it really held me back from my full potential once again. What's you're training program going to look like if you have one? I just started weightedchinups PPL routine with high volume and really liking it. Already seeing good results and feel like puking after every workout.

    Damn you guys make me feel sorry:( I'm 6' 205. I am built on a thin frame so trying to push heavy weight in any exercise is probation out of the question. My biggest assets are my arms. They grow very easily, 120 lbs tri ext are no problem. Bench 260x4-5 reps(depends on my work day) squat 315x4 good form. Deadlifts I only put 225 on as I have a nagging lower back issue of some kind. Brutus your a beast. Us tall guys with long arms an legs just don't have it easy. Deep squats and benches are a killer sometimes. This is what it's all about. Train,train,and train some more!
