Welcome brother- make sure you have your dead form right. .. I like the "strength camp" videos on youtube for deadlifts - eliot explains it well.
Impressive lifters in this thread and on this board, glad to be among you all.
Here are my stats. Everything listed below is a 10 Rep Max. I haven't tested out my 1RM's before. I don't think my choices in exercise selection gives very favorably to 1RM work, but I'd like to test out some heavy triples some time.
These aren't all the lifts that I do, but I feel they are the most important / interesting ones that are worth mentioning.
Here goes -
90lb at 210lb bw x 10
45lb at 210lb bw x 10
120lb at 210lb bw x 10
385lb x 10
195lb x 10
Chest Supported Dumbbell Row
135lb x 10
Incline Barbell Bench
185lb x 10
You deserve your handle!
Thanks Brutus...I will look that up. I have always been a stickler for proper form. Always felt that 5 strict reps were way better than 10 sloppy ones. I'm in it for the long haul and joints only take so much abuse.
Bench - 340 x 1 (225 for 17reps)
Box squat - 505 x 1
Dead - 515 x 1
Weighted dips - 225 (plus bodyweight) x 3
40 yard sprint (hand timed) - upper 4.6 range
Nothing impressive but seeing the numbers on paper makes me wanna work harder for sure
That's beastly dude. Makes me feel like a pussy.
Thanks brother, I appreciate that. My upper body numbers aren't very good compared to my lower body. I'm fairly happy with my leg strength though.
I think the most impressive part to me is the ability to run a 4.6. I think i ran a 4.8-4.9 when i was 135 pounds right out of boot camp. Well, 100 pounds later and i can just say it is significantly worse. I doubt i would need a stopwatch to time it. Keeping your speed while adding strength is a damn good deal.
I think I could hit 4.6 if a cop told me to freeze.... otherwise no chance.
Not a big bencher but heres my numbers
Squat 405x5 atg
You guys make me feel weak.
6' 205lbs. I have been steadily
Gaining strength in my bench. 225x11.245x5 275x1. Today is chest again. I'm going to try and push out more on my max. I've been doing squats sometimes twice a week and feel this is key to my recent strength gains.
Get it! 300 right around the corner!
Awesome, especially for your weight!!
Bench 315x10, 225x20+ (wont be maxing for another month, but guessing around 385x1?)
Squat 545x1, 405x13
Deadlift 635x1, 500x9
5'7" 170lbs Bench 110lbs Dumbbells (rotator issues) Squat 305
Guys what are some reasons for my bench to be slacking today? Last week I was reposing 225 no problem 10-11 no prob multiple sets, today 7,7,5
