The record in my school for benchpress in the 155 weight class is 225. Seems REALLY low. hm
what school? jr. high? high school? college?
He's 17 so propoably highschool.
Maybe it's me...but that seems a lot for 155?
i could do 240 when i was 150
1 time? Not at all.
Especially if it's a shorty
Not too shocking
i was shocked that I have a chance to break the AAPF Junior National bench record
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.
That's what I thought as well. the DL record for 155 is 445 though
just think back to the normal people you went to high school with
What's the record? I'll have 4 texas junior records at the meet I'm doing!
Everyone I've ever met in the gym could bench 400+ lbs "back in high school man..."
Jesus Christ I'm moving.
As in I'm lying?
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!!!!!!
Oh right, I got ya.
In High School I was 118 and did 155 ...whoaaa doggy.
AAPF Junior Records As Of Now:
335/227.5/307.5 Trecord = 835
320/240/282.5 Trecord = 817.5
342.5/237.5/272.5 Trecord 845
SHW Class All by the same guy set in 2000
222.5/157.5/197.5/ Trecord 577.5
489.5/346.5/434.5 t= 1270.5
I think there is a shortage of young fat people
heh... if I just started drinking a shitload of beer and eating pizza I could set all 4 AAPF SHW records raw
Yeah, I wish I could break the record though
My friend is ~200 and has the DL record for 555
