    havent had one of these in awhile and i know their are plently folks who setted new PR's like every other week. taken from all your max weight performed/completed on your deadlift, squat, and bench added together, what are you totaling? (note: legal lifts only)

    you may post your weight and years of expierence of lifting.

    what i meant by legal lifts were full ROM on bench/deadlift and paralell or lower squats. not actual comp/meet lifts if thats what you were referring to.

    then why say total? You don't get a total unless you've stepped onto the platform. Other then that you have a few one rep maxes from the gym

    Back when I did PL in high school I competed in the 155 and 165 lb classes. I think my best total was 790 in the 165 lb class. 360 dead, 255 squat, and 175 bench press:hsugh:.

    I think right now my random max total would add up to less than that. Failed on 385 dead today :wtc:.

    Pretty much what I was thinking.

    It's a lot easier to throw together your best 3 lifts that you've done in the last few months than to go out in front of judges and a crowd and get them all done in the same day.

    The only thing I've ever competed in was a benchpress competition, and I got 200 lbs at 125, so I guess my total is 200. :rofl:

    how do I know if my lifts are legal???

    Do I need to schedule an official to come to my basement??

    :noes::noes:

    Here are my 'unnofficial' lifts

    Bench - 300x5
    Squat - 350x5 ATG
    DL - 350x5

    = 1000x5...

    I've never tried 1RM maxes, nor do I have any desire too.

    510 squat
    340 power clean
    335 push jerk
    360 bench

    we don't deadlift, I have always heard that it isn't a great football lift becuase you never do anything that slow on the field :dunno:

    fuckin nitpickers. :rolleyes:

    pretty fuckin clear what he meant

    haven't done any 1RM in a long time. given my 5RM's, I'd say I'm in the 801-1000 range.

    see this is the shit that gets under my skin. "oh I don't do 1RM's" "its been forever since I maxed" "I'm afraid of big weights" "I can do x amound of weight for 5 reps, so I'll take a completely uninformed guess as to what my 1RM is"

    until you step on the platform you are a NWOT... nutswinger without a total. Claiming you have an 1100lb total because because some calculator says your should be able to lift X-amount of weight is a slap in the face to all the people who shown the balls to step out and compete.

    sorry for the rant and if I pissed you off... but this type of shit angers me

    calm down dude.

    if competitive lifters take offense and get pissed off by a bunch of people on an Internet forum talking about how much weight they can lift, then they have bigger issues they need to worry about.

    Most members here aren't competitive lifters, never will be and frankly don't want to be. Does that mean they can't be curious about what other people lift, both competitively and NWOT'itively?

    then don't call it a total. If you want an idea of what you could total at a meet... go to the gym, take a few max attempts at the squat bench and dead... all in the same session.

    Then what would you call it?

    I think people that don't compete should still be able to compare numbers.


    Edit; nevermind. Posted too soon. :o

    do you get to do some light (not counting openers) sets and stuff to warm up? is there a section where people are warming up with light weight, etc?

    meet conditions will have a rack or two to take warmups/acclimation. Most experienced guys take less time to warmup then the newer guys, they'll take bigger jumps. Gene Bell @ WPC Worlds took three warmups. 225, 475, 605 or some shit... opened over 700 jumped to the 800's then squatted over 900 on his third. It was incredible. You get plenty of time to warmup, what you do during that time is up to you. Just be ready when the head judge calls 'bar loaded.' Once the bar is loaded you have one minute to initiate the movement.

    you get three attempts at each lift.

    Give yourself plenty of time... but its a challenge and a half and will test your testicular fortitude. Taxes the shit out of your CNS and you should have a lot of rest after attempting it.

    cool.. maybe I should give this PL'ing business a try.. I'd probably wanna cut down to the 181 class (seeing as how i could probably hold onto, and still gain, my strength at that weight).. I'm sure in a few months I could get my lifts up to 1100..maybe a little more..it would be fun to at least go out and compete.. i wonder what kind of weight I could add on (to my total) when using lifting gear?
