    I'm good all the way down, the only one I question would be my standing military press...I don't do enough of that one to feel good about it as of today


    I think that's a pretty good scale...seem realistic

    I'd like to see everybody that posts "great" in their bench/squat/dead to post "great" in the pull-ups/dips/plank too...good luck on that

    180
    bench - hit 315 (yeah good here but i was lighter when i hit it)
    squat - i've repped 360

    funny thing with deadlift is that 2.75xbw is also 495 for me.

    That was back in November and December of last year. 2 knee surgeries within the last 6 months and few months away from hopefully my last one has put a hit on those numbers. Im sitting at about 500 right now but my squat is still terrible. I have been focusing on squatting since my quads became so atrophied more so right now. Its crazy that I think my grip strength took a huge hit over the months as well. My squat is decent, bench is good and dead is great, makes no sense to me. Long arms and legs mixed with a short torso FTL except when doing deads.

    Yeah grip strength does goes fast. It does feel like I took a hit for 100 lbs. in squat/deadlift too after knee surgery. Good luck, I'm sure you'll get it all back.

    Thanks bro. As long as I dont have to wear a stupid straight leg brace again for 2 and half months I will feel great. Where are your numbers at now since surgery?

    well, that article is about as fucking specific as britney spears's guess on who her baby daddy is.

    When they are talking about 225 - 315 - 405 for bench for example is that what you can REP or MAX?

    Down since I've been playing around with my carb intake. 300ish/400ish (s/d). Yeah, they both need work.

    God Im an idiot I totally missed your post above listing your numbers and weight. You squat better than I do and at 180 thats still pretty impressive nonetheless.

    it says directly below the chart that all exercises are one rep max unless otherwise noted.
