    Me and a friend did the 3 big lifts to see what our totals are.

    My weight is 215lbs, still losing some fat. Bench 205 :hs: Squat 385 Dead 385, total 975lbs.

    Friends weight is 165. Bench 235, Squat 305, Dead 405, total 945lbs.

    Working on 1000+ totals now.

    how do you go about that, btw?

    i've never maxed correctly.

    what kind of rep scheme do you use? 3x3x3x1x1x1 or something like that, while increasing the weight?

    very nice lifts! Has your squat always been strong compared to your dead?

    i have alot easier time with deadlift than squats. it gets alot more intimidating when all the weight is on your back.

    Most people cant squat there deadlift, either they have a weaker back and really strong legs. Or they need to hit ||

    That wasn't fair it didn't add anything to the conversation I'm sorry. :rofl:

    But seriously, people should be less concerned about others and worry about themselves more.

    Do you even know what the definition of irony is? Or what I even posted in this thread regarding the thread starter?

    I said worry about yourselves. You making an asinine post doesn't change anything.
