    I know it's not a big deal, but when you're in a gym, it's not too frequently you see someone benching with 100+ lb db's..who is in the crew? Besides the obvious?

    And on another note.. i saw a guy half preacher curling the 110 lb db's yesterday...yes, it was only half ROM, but i am guessing 90% of this forum wouldnt be able to hold the 110 lb db in a preacher curl position without their arm snapping in half. This nigga was HUGE.

    that's what i thought..but he was a brotha; must be genetically gifted. he started with the 105's..then up to the 110's.. i wanted to talk to him, but he had his headphones on.. i was curling with the 40's and i wanted to say, "bro, how am i supposed to finish my workout with you curling those behind me?"

    no lie, his arms had to be 22" and a lot of visible veins...he looked to be in his late 30's, too..so i'm guessing most of his training was done in prison.

    (i'm kidding about prison) ..:o

    Can do hundreds for 6-8 for 2-3 sets.

    but fucking OUCH thinking about trying to curl that shit on a preacher station, hurts thinking about it.

    most i've done is 105s for reps

    but yeah i don't see many using 100s for anything other than, maybe, shrugs, and even that's rare.

    can do 100s for 4-5 sets of 10, don't do DB press as a main movement much though

    120s for a couple. Plenty of dudes bench the 120-130s, but not too many using the 140-150s

    used to hit the 140's on a regular basis for bench but after rupturing my long head bicep im just now back to the 95's to 100's. So i guess im in the club just not the impressive club lol. Hopefully muscle memory continues to do its job ;).

    Man, I have over 20" arms with veins and I never go heavier than 60 and ususally it's no heavier than 40 for curls.
