    I am 5'3" 123 pounds

    Bench is at 165
    And today, first time doing squats, I did 135 x 7....Maybe I coulda put on more but I was alone with no spotter. Being that I repped it 7 times I'm pretty confident I can do three with more weight, but still....

    How far away is your guys' squat then bench.

    You should squat and deadlift a LOT more than you can bench, unless you have freakishly short arms and insanely long legs.

    Ah, like I said, it was the first time I did real squats. I usually do them on the machine because I'm a fucking wussy :riaa:

    But, godamm I loved it. Squats are like nothing else, total rush thru the body. My legs felt awesome going up. Oh, and I've only been working out since November.

    I can't do anything with 300 pounds :o ...err, I can do 430 on the legpress :mamoru:

    when you first start squatting, it may seem like you are doing close to your max when you arent really. it will probly shoot up within a month as you learn to do the lift better and will suceed your bench.

    I can only squat about 40 lbs more than I bench, but I haven't maxed squat in a while and my heavy triples are increasing dramatically faster than my bench.

    The last full meet he did was in 2003 I belive he did like a 1015 or something like that.

    I would show you a pic of the total board we have but the only pic I have on my comp cuts out right after his name.

    My numbers have been meh, I did a 425 box squat the other day that was pretty easy, my raw bench is back to normal, I am not really sure about shirted I don't have a shirt atm. My deadlift is getting better and better I want to pull 585 before I leave for basic

    165 bench is pretty good at your body weight, but your squat will increase pretty quickly. I'd imagine you'll max out around 205-215.

    365 last time I maxed and I have squatted 425, although I haven't maxed in about 3 months or so and my heavy triples have gone up 20lbs in that time (even with cutting).

    I would have to think shes able to lift that much in part because of amazing genes. Even so though, I am in awe, that is amazing.

    My form is possibly whack, but my deadlift is the same as my bench, my squat is cool, but i use the spot machine :hsugh:

    current:
    Dead ~ 215
    bench ~ 225
    Squat ~ 335
