    Powerlift Stats???

    Out of curiousity i was just wondering how much you people can powerlift. Everyone put down their benchpress, from reps of 8-12, their max benchpress, deadlift, and squat.

    Oh, and dont forget to include your bodyweight.

    Weight: 160lbs
    Benchpress: 155 x 8 (I dont max bench)
    Deadlift: 280 x 4
    Squat: 190 x 10

    Ego boosting thread??
    I will be lifting heavy again after my fight in June.
    My previous maxes were

    Squat- 315
    Bench- 345
    Deadlift- 465
    Weight-175

    My bench has dropped a lot but my squat/dead only lost a bit since training for the fight. Hoping to get it all back up after and get a 500 dead, 400 squat.

    The only person I remotely believe on this thread is Emevas due to his constant involvement with this site. So essentially

    Video or it didn't happen.

    Man, I'll bite for **** and giggles. I never keep a log of what I lift (not anymore), and I haven't tried a 1 max lift in ages, so here it goes.

    Age: 38. Height: 5'6". Weight: 155lbs or something like that. Wee wee: I wrap it around my waist. That's my lifting belt.

    Squats: 265lbs x 6 reps (so I guess my current 1 max is 300-something lbs). Usually I'm just happy doing 215 x 10 reps - or almost 20 reps if I take longer breaks between reps.

    Deadlift: 265 x 8 reps (so I guess my 1RM is 320-something lbs)

    Front Squat: 195 x 8 (have no clue what my 1RM is, and I don't plan to try do it... ever, **** no!!!)

    Bench Presses: Shitty. 175lbs is my 1RM. The moment I try to lift anything beyond 145, my shoulders take a crap. Very painful. I don't see this changing anytime soon.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    El Macho, have you considered a powerlifting style bench press instead of bodybuilding style? I've dislocated my right shoulder a ton of times, and can do powerlifting style just fine.

    Those aren't really heavy weights. For the most part, good form will keep you safe. Don't use loads you can't handle, and don't sacrafice form for more weight, and you'll be fine. Keep a tight core.
