    Those numbers, for your bodyweight read like a serious powerlifting competitor's. How long have you been lifting?

    Hmmm, what are those numbers dude?

    Hey thanks to all those with serious posts, and for who with fake posts, this thread is for people who actually train. I broke my squat record yesterday with 205 x 10 and 225 x 5, well, 4.5. Keep posting and remember to include:
    Deadlift
    Squat
    Benchpress
    Powerclean (sorry, I thought it was a powerlift)
    Age
    Weight
    Height

    Are you looking for a benchmark to measure your progress by ? I use this for lack of having a strength coach or any kind of training library :-

    http://www.exrx.net/Testing/WeightLi...hStandards.htm

    By these standards, I'm novice/intermediate level for my bodyweight (about right for the training time given), El Macho is intermediate/advanced and Li Guy's personal records, for his bodyweight put him in the advanced/elite strength athelete categories. (I remember somebody else posting to say they'd seen him deadlift over 400 before).

    Holy ****!!! At 175lbs of weight, that's fucking good!!!

    I use the same exrx link Cullion uses for standards. My goal is to be firmly and consistently at the advance stage. For me, it comes and goes (and I'm slipping back into the intermediate range.)

    Not to derail, but I guess the OP and others would like a dedicated thread in which to keep track, compare and motivate when it comes to lifts. If so, let me add a little bit to that.

    I rarely try a 1RM (as I did a few weeks ago). Instead I estimate what my 5RM or 6RM currently is, add 5 to 10lbs (or substracts depending on the situation), note the max # of reps I got in one set, and use the exrx 1RM calculator to estimate my current 1 RM:

    http://www.exrx.net/Calculators/OneRepMax.html

    Also (and this may be of interest to you guys), I started using bodyspace diligently to keep track of my 1RM's ups and downs.

    You can see the charts it generates for me here. It is really something when you begin to see your performance improvements and degratations over time. I'm looking forward to see how this weekly data looks like in three months.

    This is not to take away from the PT/Health forums we have here, but the bodyspace tracking tools are excellent if you want to keep track of lifts and compare (and if you truly dedicate to keep weekly records.) This is a tool that you can use over there in combination with the intelligent discussions we have here.

    PT discussions over there are usually retarded... and yeah, they also discuss martial arts. :sad7:
