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?



I found a photo of how ripped you are.



Keep lifting bro. You internet tough guys give us real people hope with all your made up awesomeness.

Bench: 1RM 155kg, 50kg start:
Dead-lift: 1RM 220kg, 60kg start
Squat: 1RM 190kg, 40kg start
OHP (Shoulder press): 1RM 85kg, 30kg start

Been training for 1.6 years.

Also remember that the weight people start at isn't important, nor is the weight they end at unless they are a power lifter, each of us is different which ends up producing different results.

Around 25 tons with the push of a button. I don't lift...it slows you down. Think your in shape? Do 80 sit ups in 2 minuets, (the first 60 are easy). 20 pull ups, (chin the bar then lock your arms straight. That's 1, doesn't matter which way your hands go). Run 3 miles in 18 minuets or better. = )


Ever meet one of those guys who have a huge chest, gigantic arms, and big legs but can't do a single pullup or more than 20 pushups? I remember meeting a lot of those people in the gym before I built my own home gym. I was just the same as them a long time ago. Deluded by the media and all the six pack abs frenzies, all I did was chest and arms workouts such as bench/flyes and curls.

Man. BIG mistake. I was so stupid, didn't even work my legs, back, triceps, and etc. I did get to a point where I got bigger than everyone, so they all thought "wow he must be really strong and fast, so fit". Little did they know that I couldn't do a SINGLE pullup, more than 30 pushups, and less than a 7:00 mile. I got shin splints out of all of that too because my legs were so tiny.

Thankfully I'm a lot stronger now, but damn. That sucked.

wow those are some pretty awesome gains. Yeah I know I'm just interested in how much people gain on average just to give a rough idea of what is possible.

That's the PT test for the United States Marine Corps, or it was back when I was in. It's probably harder now, and it doesn't matter how much you weigh. If you can do that you're in shape. Oh, and my target combat weight, (I'm 6' 3") was 265 pounds. The most I ever got to was 243, but that's still pretty scary. = )


That's simply because endurance and speed benefits soldiers the most. When I was doing my military training most of it was endurance training in one form or another. It's different from let's say fireman or fighter might need or someone focused on one of the many sports.

Strenght training isn't non-existant in military tough and "pure strength is also desirable. ":

Oh look! the routine even has Squat, Dead-lift and Bench-press.

For those thinking how well they are doing this site gives pretty good image on where you are at with your training:

Thanks for the link, it has given me a good idea for what I should be aiming and motivated me a little. I thought I wasn't that strong for my weight but as an untrained person I'm at the intermediate level for most and even advanced for shoulder press which is funny because I always thought bench was my strength.

I'm just saying I don't lift. I don't want the bulk. I mean technically strapping on a 60 pound alice pack, weapons, and ammo, then humping through15, 20 miles of jungle probably counts as weight training.............Oh, wait. I'm lying. I do weight train. Captains of Crush, grip trainers. I almost got the #3 closed....Most people can't close the #1. Not bad for an old guy. Check it out:

There 25 bucks apiece, and there a lot of fun, *smiles* = )

By the way, quaser, have you ever tried using www.bodybuilding.com? There are lots of workouts and plans on there, plus a huge amount of information to avoid plateaus and lose weight. I know quite a few people who went through some awesome transformations off BB.

Bench 265
Squat 300

Those are really the only two heavy lifts I like and rep with lower weight of course.
