    ... this was our second one to mark progress from when we did it at the beginning of the semester.

    so even though this is specifically a weight lifting class (not just a PE class or something) we don't do max lifts, we do this. He gives us a paper with 6 lifts and a percentage:

    bicep curls: 35%
    bench press: 75%
    lat pull-downs: 70%
    leg extensions: 65%
    leg curls: 35%
    curl-ups (crunches): 15%

    that's how much of our body weight we are suppose to do and then we write down how many times we could do it. they are all ranked up to 20 reps and 21+ is superior..

    so i weighed 177 this time (as opposed to 170 during the first eval, at least i was able to see progress somewhere) and needless to say i got the highest on everything, just like the first eval which means this eval doesn't show anything. what waste of time :greddy:

    i was benching with 135 lbs...

    it's not that hard. i could probably do 135 for reps longer than i could run on a treadmill. as sad as that is about my running ability :)

    rofl im 165 so i'd be doing 115 on lat pull downs and 123 on bench :hsugh:

    Thats not really a good indicator tho, taller people weigh more and could be just as strong as a shorter person who would get to use less weight...

    ya, there's a million things wrong with that as an indicator. my teacher is a fat guy that doesn't know what he's talking about.

    and i'm not talking powerlifting fat guy :mamoru:

    I wish I could bench 190lbs 21 times. Your coach is a tool.

    This seems pretty easy.

    I go considerably heavier than those numbers in my daily workouts and the only one that might give me trouble for a set of 21 would be the lat pulldown.

    Yea I would fail at Bench and Latpulldown, actually lat pulldown would depend on which grip we are talking about...
