This thread is for those that like to see how they are doing compared to others achievements. If you are a goal motivated person, find someone on the list and do your best to top their goal, it is all about hunger and if you want it that bad.This thread will start by charting the basic lifts bench, squat, and dead lift by pure weight, and eventually evolve another chart into pounds lifted vs. body weight and maybe add more lifts based on popularity.

The six things required when adding someone to the list or making a move on the list: your user name, what lift was preformed, how much weight was lifted, how long you have been training, how much you weigh, and date that the lift was preformed.


Please PM with updates or additions with all information. Also, verifications may be needed from time to time.

We've already done this...

lol..

and besides...we also came to the conclusion doing 1rm is not something most of us do anymore...too taxing on the body, and risks energy...

but, if you want motivation...looks like your deadlift is a little light for the rest of your stats...just sayin...

I have yet to see a thread like this but if you say so...

I will update today with the pm's I have gotten, sorry editing with my phone obviously isn't working too well. lol

And yes, my deadlift is light; however, I have never actually maxxed out on the lift, I just posted what I know I have done recently.

Word. The only thing I've ever maxxed on is straightbar shrugs :lol2:

It wasn't planned, it was pretty much at the tail end of a shoulder/trap session, and we just started adding plates. I got 695 once, and my buddy got 705...twice. Fucker. His traps are way bigger than mine anyway.

It pretty much went like this:
We each did 225x10 and decided it was too easy
We each did 315x10, again, too easy
We up it to 405x5
495x5
585x3
675x2
I get 695 once...my buddy gets it twice
then we stuck on 5s so he could break the 700 mark, and got it twice.


Funny enough, I haven't done straight bar shrugs in over a year. :think:

Current Max Bench: 225
Goal within the next 6 months: 315 / Rep 225 5 times

Current Squat: 315
Goal within the next 6 months: 405

I'm 5'9 and 165 lbs (in the morning)
I want 170 by May

I also leg press 760 x 3, not including whatever the machine dead weight is. My buddy said it sits at 125 but there is no way that is accurate.

your buddy also said you don't go even half of the way down on those "800+ leg presses" you've told me about.

just sayin.

we need a "whats your ROM?" thread.

Why you insisted on calling me out like that I have no idea when we see each other every day for 6+ hours. You or my "buddy" could have brought this up to my face countless times yet you choose KCSR to talk about it, awesome. Either way we'll go to the gym on shift / after. If I'm wrong I'LL post that I failed to do it and post the actual weight that I did press, I have no problem with that but you calling me out is pretty messed up.

Fail to go .5 way down? On 760 pound presses I go 90 degrees, which is all you have ever insisted is the standard (or a good place to start) your words when we were on night shift together. I'm going to say this now so I don't shoot myself in the foot later. I was including the 125 pound dead weight amount, so we can start with 635 and go from there. I'll admit to that right now.

Just saying. See you at work.

I called you out here because after some recent lies I've found out about, I was gonna let them go and just ignore it until I get off shift and come back and see this..just couldn't hold off anymore.

See ya in a few hours. We'll start ya at the 760 weight, not including the sled.

Hahhah so wait? You're admitting that you can do 635 + sled? And that in the first post in this thread, you straight up lied? I don't get it.

Leg Presses are a joke. When I was in college playing football I could leg press 1000lbs and it was easy. Actually several of the lineman on my team could do it. Now no one even came close to squating 1000 pounds. My one rep squat max was 500lbs.

Theres no way in hell I could do anything close to either of those now. I havnt lifed hardcore like that in YEARS!

leg presses are a good staple in lifting, and you are correct, just because you can legs press XXXlbs, doesn't mean you can squat XXXlbs...they are 2 different exercises...for me, i wouldn't call them a "joke"...i do them after hacks, and get a great pump and burn from doing them...

word. i'm certainly no super experienced lifter or anything, but i definitely get a good workout on leg days with the leg press.

only a fool would think that because they can leg press XXX, that they can squat XXX, and i don't think anyone in this thread has implied that.

i suck on most all my lifts with legs anyway...most are way lower weight then people the same size as me...i'm too concerned with going the correct depth and "feeling" my muscles in my legs work...i could bang them out just to bang them, but i don't feel it nearly as much the days following...

Agree w/ Protege94

Leg press is good for a killer pump and stretching the fascia that way with high reps. I can do ~1200 for 15 fairly easily but its my squatting that has built my legs.

P.S. this is is with my legs smashed into my chest every rep, you should try that OD :lolg:

Yeah "Ass-to-Grass" squats are great, just gotta make sure your form is spot-on. I got lazy on a set and tweaked something in my knee. I'm taking a break from squats for several months and sticking to leg presses, leg curls, machine hack squats, and lunges until everything heals up...
