just how strong are you?

every strength board needs a comparison topic. be it for competitiveness, or just to see where you stand in the crowd.

i want you to post your max lifts, generally i'd like to know squat/bench/dead lift, but if you feel your strong in other lifts feel free to post it
if you've never maxed before, just post the most you lifted and for how many reps.


heres mine

bench press - 220lbs x 3
squats - 253lbs x 5 (im going to break this on friday)
dead lift - 352lbs x 3

<--- the punch that started it all!

My current favirote fighters
Anderson Silva
Junior Dos Santos
Mauricio Rua
Alistair Overeem
Jon Jones

WAR dan hardy, paul daley, ross pearson and terry etim doing it for the britz!

your squat and deads seem mixed up

don't worry though, theres a guy in my gym who can bench more than he can deadlift, in fact im sure most of them can lol.

Yuh mate, I know it's freakin weird. I guess I just have a really week back, I remember the first time I ever squated I did 185x10, but could only do like 155x5 for Deads.

I normally dont do reg bench. I use dumbells on that. I incline 225x12
Squat did yesterday 315x12
and I just do hyperextensions for lower back. Last time I did them like 2yrs ago did 385x12.
I do all of these in pyramid sets
Wow never really looked at my stats. Ive never maxed out cause I dodnt have a training partner to spot me.So I never tried

Why do I do this? Because I can. Because pain tells me Im awake. Reminds me Im alive. Who am I? I am the wrecker of steel. I am the face of destiny. I am................... Chaos
