    ...Venus does have a weight. "Weight" is the force due to gravitational attraction, which is probably quite large for Venus.

    The term "weightless" as applied to things like astronauts is a misnomer...it should really be "apparent weightlessness"; the astronaut is still falling, still has a force applied to it, it is just that it's going in an orbit where the acceleration towards the earth is exactly counter-acted by its instantaneous velocity perpendicular to that accelaration. This is a constant free-fall that gives the illusion of weightlessness.

    The same applies to Venus, and, infact, any other orbiting body.

    Um, and I cannot bench for toffee...infact, I've never pushed it to see what I can max at. I've got a power rack arriving next week though, so should be able to start some proper weight training soon.

    Sorry for being a pedant, I'll go away again now

    It will only be weight relative to the sun. Meaning, if you were on the sun and wanted to pick up Venus. Also, since you are closer to the object exerting the gravity, the gravity increases, making it heavier. But that doesn't even matter, since you couldn't get anywhere near the sun in the first place.

    Jesus H. Christ some of you are giants.

    I'm 155, 5'10 and bench 115 regularly, 135 for less reps. Weights suck...I stick to many rep calisthenics. :icon_tong

    Edit: I got to 78 push ups, failing on the 79th. But I can't bench my own bodyweight. Wierd.

    Today I did 110lb dumbells on incline bench for 8 reps followed by a 10 second hold.



    In two months, I want to be up to 125lb dumbells.

    Can a marathon runner out-sprint a sprinter?

    As a martial artist, lift for strength, not endurance. You could do 200 push-ups, but that won't mean you can bench your own body weight. That's just not how it works.

    EDIT: Oh, and I'm up to doing dips with 30lbs attached for 5 reps. How does that translate to BP? I'm now 160lbs (as opposed to 145lbs a few months ago!)

    I weigh about 65 kg, (how many lbs?), I bench about 75-80kgs for 12 reps. Meh, better at other areas.
