lol, nice try firewall. 350 pound squat and 130 pound bench? Google image search "parallel squat". At the bottom of the lift your thighs should be at a 90* angle to your calves.

I'm not a powerlifter but

Bench: 225
Squat: 305
Deadlift: 350

At 165 pounds.

Wtf, how are you guys deadlifts so high? and bench so low?

I'm 140lbs

Squat - Idk
Bench - 180lbs
Deadlift - Never went over 150lbs but I usually do that in sets of 5 with 10-15 reps and 1 minute breaks

we had a weightlifting program in middle school. it was basically the same thing as our high school weights program but not as intense.

in 7th grade my max on bench was 70
in 8th grade it was 130 (135 on decline, 120 on incline).

quite an improvement eh? i was a butterball in 7th grade and i guess puberty struck in 8th, lol. i didn't lift weights in high school because i was taking other classes, and the sports i played (soccer/track) didn't require any weightlifting (even though i think they should've...).

i'm 21 now and i've been going to the gym recently. i don't know any of my max's because i don't have a spotter. but hopefully i'm getting stronger! i can feel it already just after a couple of weeks.

fasho i hear ya i didnt take it as you were hatin

yeah inclines will really help your bench. if you do like 5-6 weeks strictly incline your flat bench will go up 10-20lbs probably more easy

i used to be into powerliftin. when im on that regime lots of weight low reps. usually 8 reps is the most per set. As of right now, im getting lean. I do nothing less than 12 nice full reps. as for my powerliftin numbers, not too high, 225 max on bench, prolly around 300-325 squat, and everything else im not too huge on maxing out on. 300 squats i do about 4-6 times. peace bro.

I have mixed power lifting routines into my schedule many times.

My favorite would have been the Westside Barbell routine.

My current lifts are:

Bench: 350

Squat: 450

Deadlift: 500

5'10 200 lbs

I'm pretty surprised and glad to see many peoples squat/deadlift numbers higher than their bench......we don't need more bench jockeys in the world haha.

wait, so you do 5 sets of deadlifts, 10-15 reps per set, or did I misunderstand?

A few years back when i was actually in good shape still playing football

6'3 265

bench- 275 (never my strong point, always struggled with it because i never did it)
squat- 465 (bench squat) i like to pause at the bottom. I found it harder
clean- 290ish
deadlift-something like 500
leg press- over 1000


I stopped doing the dead-lift because i had back problems and never did it correctly so i didn't want to risk it. Stupid lift anyways..

I used to love doing rows with dumbells..

I'm at like 325 now, but i can still move and run.Everyone things im like 250-260. Just joined a gym. Hopefully get down to 265 270 and then imma join the Navy.. be a combat medic. we will see how it goes though


What you should do is make sure you get the lift down. Bench is easy, keep your feet on the ground.

Squat if you can't keep your back straight your just going to hurt yourself. Push through your hips like your fucking a girl

Cleans same thing explode with your hips like your banging a girl. A good way to learn is to jump a little bit

Deadlift is stupid.. I like the reverse grip though

Snatchs are awesome too. Almost same lift as a clean except its over your head but same body motion.



So you know.. The big numbers don't make you the best athlete.. Some of the people who put up massive numbers can't run a lap.. Keep it all in check with each other..

I like to do circuit traning. I mostly use barbells quick switch from one exercise to another with no rest. Rest when youve done a set of each exercise. Gets the heart pumping

why because you cant do it right? its the only full bodylift out there and a true test of strength. remember the meet dont start till the bar hits the floor
