I can lift about 160 kg on dead, 80-90 kg on squat and about 60 kg on press or bench.

But considering I weigh 315 lbs It's not that great though I've hardly trained so when I start I should hopefully lose some weight and gain strength.


Oh ok. 315 lbs, that's about 150 kg. If you could loose some weight without loosing strength, that would be impressive.

I weight about 83 kg and I'm about 178 cm tall so I'm just about fine with my current strength.

I can bench press 180lbs reps of 10. I don't particularly work out. the only thing I do is lift boxes daily at work and some of the boxes can weigh between 80lbs to 10lbs. I wish to be able to bench press 250lbs in the future though.

I can bench 200 pounds.




Yes, I do. What kind of question is that? Are you trying to instigate, little bear? I can bench 200 pounds. I can shoulder press 100 pounds. I can dead lift over 200 pounds. I can also squat close to 200. What about you? How much can you bench? Hmm, little, bear?

You know, complaining about trolling when you yourself troll is actually cool with me. It shows what a wonderful sense of humour you have.

That's tough. I tried loosing weight once. Lost about 12 kg in 3 months. I was squatting about 85 kg and did about five reps and couldn't get up. I fell splat. Didn't even have time to call for a spot. My gym mates were like, "OMG, you alright man?" And I'm like "I'm fine, it happens."

I realized that I felt weaker and lethargic ever since I hit 72 kg.

sounds bad but I guess you didn't have much body fat at that weight. I have been about 15 kg lighter before and didn't lose any strength.

Well if you are asking how much weight you can lift, I assume you are referring to Dead-lift?

Well for 5 reps my best is 160kg - 352 lbs but haven't tried one rep max for a long while now tough (last record was 175kg - 385 lbs about a year a go tough).

If you mean overall strength then my Squat/Bench/Deadlift ratio is:
125/75/160 kg - 256/165/352 lbs (5 reps, squat depth = below Parallel)

Pretty happy with the ratio although my bench could be a bit higher but ratio is fairly close to the "normal" 4:3:5 ratio.

Well, I don't know which lift, but I've stuck to 4 primarily: Bench Press, Leg Press, Powerclean, and Deadlift. I haven't done deadlift in a while, but the other 3 I've kept up with. I also started off with an injured back, so my starting weights should have been higher.

I started lifting in August 2010 and have been at it since. My body weight has been anywhere from 185 to 215 lbs from when I started and now.

Bench Press:
Starting Weight: 95 lbs. | 2011 - 185 lbs. | 2012 - 225 lbs. (haven't maxed currently so I'll have to check. I'd imagine 240 or so)

Powerclean:
Starting Weight: 95 lbs. | 2011 - 175 lbs. | 2012 - 215 lbs. current: 225 lbs.

Deadlift:
Starting Weight: 135 lbs. | 2011 - 315 lbs. | 2012 - 405 lbs.

Leg Press:
Starting Weight: 185 lbs. | 2011 - 365 lbs. | 2012 - 595 lbs. current: 750 lbs. (but don't ask me to rep it)

As for regimen, drink protein shakes and eat lots of meat, but a while before you work out. It worked very well for me.
Also, lift for at least 30 minutes at a time. Don't just max, do reps, and take breaks. Rushed lifting doesn't give you the benefits.
Don't worry about body fat or weight, it's probably better to have some level of fat to burn off. Unless you're rapidly gaining weight it's nothing to worry about.
Set high expectations, and try to reach them; even if you fail you will still get stronger fast.
Also, don't do the same lift too frequently. For example, do arms on Monday and Thursday, do legs on Tuesday and Friday, and cardio on Wednesday and Saturday. Taking a day off helps your body recover.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. If I could make gains like that I'll be happy.
