    I was doing 2 45s on each side of an olympic bar 3 sets of 10 plus the warm up , but I lift in my garage w/out a spotter so I am assuming that I can do 1.5 low reps. Since starting MT in Sept. I kind of fell back a little bcuz I felt as though my arms were impeding my speed a little. I am much quicker now so I am startin to get back into lifting for more power. I weigh 225 now.

    I normally bench about 75kgs for about 8 reps. I weigh 80kgs. My highest 1rpm is 85kgs but I havent attempted to best that in 6 months so I suspose my 1rpm would be somewhere near 120% of my weight

    Body weight 135lbs, last max bench 155lbs. At the very top of my game when I was lifting 4 days a week I was benching 190x3 reps at a bodyweight of 123lbs. I'd love to be back there....

    i weigh 80gk, and am able to bench about 120kg. although i usually do 4 sets of 15 reps at 60kg on my chest strenght days, i really dont want to get too big, so i focus on endurance strenght, since i usually fight at middleweight (that is, under 82kg).

    Haven't visited this thread in a while, but after my powerlifting class, my 1RM max is 240 @ 150 lbs.

    Damn, I don't know whether or not I should be impressed by the 1RM:BW ratio or if I should be horrified that you are a scrawny little fucker.

    I only use dumbbells but I use two 45's to 10 reps. I'm 153 pounds. ~ so lifting 90lbs @150 = over half.

    But I've always found that single dumbbells is harder than a bar; but which is better for you? I'm not interested in saying : I can lift a thousand pounds. I am interesting in doing what is best, what makes you stronger. Is there a way to convert from dumbbells to olympic bar?

    Been curious about this myself. I'm an ubernoob to lifting... What's the difference (benefit-wise) between dumbbells, bar, and a chest press machine?
