My max is 195 pounds at 160 BW. My goal is 225 by my birthday(june), and 255 by the end of the year. Hopefully I can get up to 315 within the next couple years, and I'll be a happy camper

What a stud

You don't know who I am? You must be new.

Max was 365, but that was about a decade ago. Max now would be about 315.

Lessee... 4 45-pound plates, a couple of 25s, and the bar, that's 275. Sorry for the calculation, but I never think about weight, just about plates.

More impressive (to most average folks, anyway) than stacking on weights in the gym is when we're out in social situations and I military-press my wife.
