5'6", 125 lb except for 4-5 days out of the month (SCREW YOU GUYS), and I'm sure the doctor's office scale from hell would have me at 128. I hate those f*cking scales so much. I know 394875394539485394752934753 women who put off physicals because of those goddamn shitting scales we'd all like to take a sledgehammer to. We all weigh ourselves at home regularly BTW.

If I can bench 2 30 lb dumbbells, it's a big deal. I can only curl 15 lb. ones. I leg press 130, tricep kickbacks 15 lbs, tricep dips 20 lbs, I can't remember anything else right now. It's not at all impressive, but I have built some nice definition over the years.

I only lift about 2x a week, b/c the rest of the time I am doing bag and pad work, which also conditions the upper body.

Meh, i'm the first to admit i'm not even very strong. Though I get the feeling that a lot of people may have exaggerated their lifts and stuff. I'm about between 6,1 1/2, aged 24 and weigh about 14 and a half stone. I'm naturally slim and slender, kinda ecto-mesomorphic (it's my shoulders and back that save me from looking like a complete weakling)

Anyways,

Bench: 95kgs - 7 to 8 reps. (i've got long monkey style arms so i'm not the best at benching. Dips helped shape my body better)

Squat: 105kgs - 10 reps (I never do less than 10 on legs)

Deadlift: 140kgs - 8 reps

No offense but looking at how extreme that angle is that picture looks fake.

yeah it does look a little questionable.
And The Dark Knight there is nothing wrong wth your lifts. The only reason mine are decent is because I powerlifted for a while.
Anyway gym strentgh means nothing on the mats its just an aid

S0VERE1GN has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I don't use weights, but for effective strength, these are the best benchmarks I can think of:

1 Mile speed: 7:20
Maximum pushups in one session: 350
Maximum squats in one session: 520
maximum situps in one session: 500
I can swim about a quarter mile.

You wouldn't say that if you watched me shrimp out!

Hey, I do the best with the puny upper body muscle bestowed upon me by my gender.
