    Trust me if you do enough you'll mess your shoulder up just as bad.

    I'm still surprised at the high numbers put up by people who are 3/4 quarters my weight. When I'm in the gym only a handful of absolute beasts and gym monkeys are squating more than me. That's not a brag, I don't think my squats are that impressive, just that the average of others sqautters is vastly out of proportion compared to the claims on bullshido.

    Exclude Omega from that, because as a pro fighter I expect his numbers to be exceptional.

    I'm 200lbs, 6'4.

    These are 6rm's (I don't use a spotter).
    Bench 175 (currently off with a buggered shoulder)
    Deadlifts and Squats are both 175 as of today, but I'll be upping that next session.

    I only started heavy lifting again in January and I'm happy with my progress thus far, but its still a far cry from when i was 20 and could bench more than 200.

    I think you're thinking sets of squats and lot of people here are listing single max squat.

    I haven't worked with a weight machine in probably 15 years.

    But back in the day, I would squat reps using 360. But my legs were ungodly...back when I was in the navy (20 yrs ago), I had a 26" waist, 3% body fat, but weighed 195. Most of it was legs. heh.

    I only squat using 225-315 these days, never bench more than 365, and never deadlift more than 405. I choose to not go heavy anymore. I no longer play football or lift competitvely, so I don't feel the need to lift like I used to. I have some crazy strong clients and other guys at the gym that lift some impressive weights.

    BTW- I am 6'3" and around 245.

    I'm the master of 12 ounce curls: not a lot of weight, but I do high reps.

    Converting everybody's squats to 1RM with a dirty online converter and looking up by bodyweight in the tables in the back of Rippetoe's Practical Programming, only Omega (over Elite) and Cayvmann (roughly midway between Advanced and Elite) come higher than you (midway from Intermediate and Advanced).

    (Intermediate is someone with 2 years regular training, Advanced is someone with multi year experience and goals in high level competitive athletics, Elite is a power lifting competitor and should be less than 1% of people who touch weights. )

    My 1RMs at 90kg (198lbs):
    Bench: 77.5 kg (171) (I have the upper body of a preteen)
    Squat: 132.5 kg (292)
    DL: 150 kg (330)

    290 lbs, at 173 cm (that's 5'8'', right?), and 150 lbs.

    Bench, not part of my usual routine, but around 110 lbs when I have to.

    Deadlift, 180ish.

    Actually, I most work out with a 44 lbs barbell, and two 44lbs kettlebells.

    Not an olympian, but I guess for my size just okay.



    EDIT: HAHA, I feel much manlier now.
    Earlier: Kilo to pound transition FAIL.
