one thing to remember is not compare the amount of weight you are lifitng to anther but the progress you are gaining, you could not expect a 100 pound guy to lift what a 300 pound guy could if both are moderate in build, though you can directly compare thier gains

This is some good stuff.

Don, that's a really good point, but there is a benefit to trying to lift what a 300 lb guy can lift, it makes you push yourself harder. I'm little but I push myself hard so I can life alot of weight.

Yeah, everything in moderation. Slow progression is necessary in weightlifting and cardio. As for actual combat training, get as much of that as you can.

iron you must be thick to pull that off. I had several football friends that were around 5'9" that were built very good and their highest weight presses were between 270-285lbs on free weights [machines usually show higher than actual weight] with no roids. I admired their builds and they certainly had no problems finding willing dates either because of it. you must be one stout guy I'll give you that.

Stout is a good adjective. The call me the Iron man (formerly the Iron Dwarf) for a reason. Remember that this is only one press and not a full 12 rep set like I usually do. I'm not on roids, but I do drink my milk.

I'm thick through the shoulders, chest and back. I have good sized arms but the focus of my weight is in my torso, so as long as something is right in front of me, I am in control.

I hope that words like "stout" and "thick" are meant as compliments, but I figured they are. What good is training if you're not pushing yourself, right?

ok that sounds right with what I was picturing. I knew if you could get that much weight up your chest must have been bigger than your arms. Ive seen guys with strong but not big arms get up weights that looking at them with their shirts on you'd not believe how strong they really were because their chests were thicker than appeared thru their shirts.
