    Not a chance. We had a guy who I still hang out with that is 5'1" and a shade over 100 lbs who got 210 his senior year in HS.

    225 seems really low for 155 lbs.

    we all 'know a guy'

    225 is a good lift for your average 155lb high schooler - hell there is a good chance that the majority of high school students cant even bench their bodyweight

    Friend of mine did 290 at 135 in High School, so I would have to say that seems low to me as well.

    He's been out of training for about 2 years and just got back into it, he weighs 155 and put up 245, so I dunno.

    no no, not at all

    The point is, everyone knows 'a guy' that is an exception to the norm. I'm just saying think of the average 155lb high schooler - most of em can't even bench their bodyweight. 225 is a big goal for a lot people people that weight more than 155lbs.

    It's a small federation and apparently there is a shortage of junior 275ers. Fatdude has like 2 or 3 APA junior records.

    I may be weak and skinny fat, but I shall be a record holder!!!!!!
