    If you were a average 6'1" dude how much SHOULD you be able to lift for the following:

    (1RM. I wrote my own goals down but I'm curious what FN thinks. )

    bench:

    dl:

    squat:

    (for reps)

    leg press:

    curl:

    shoulder press:



    PS I'm not aspiring to be a BB just want to have some strength and look good.

    PPS Dont troll me or I'll tell papa pur to banhammer

    PPPS im kidding

    Im looking for an outsiders perspective. What other peoples expectation of what a 6'1" guy should be able to do.

    It's not rocket surgery boss. :ugh:

    Im 6'1 and was about 235 early this year before my injury in June
    best lifts were
    Bench - 315x3
    Squat - 450 I think or higher
    Deadlift - 475

    And I was doing a powerlifting routine as I was going to compete this November so my strength and numbers would have been even higher.
    But this doesnt mean anything because every person is different and has different goals.

    Need to know how much you weigh. A 6'1" skinny dude, wouldn't expect much, a 6'1" normal dude a little more, and a 6'1" thick bro quite a bit.

    If you are normal I'd say 280-300 bench, and i don't know about the rest, b/c no one but me does deadlifts or squats at my gym.

    edit: i am retarded, you said average dude....carry on.

    I totally realize this. I was just hoping to hear some answers from people and what they think are good numbers. I'm not going to be setting these as my goals Im just curious on the sort of feedback I can get.

    I'll post my goals up in a bit here.

    answers are above, and only reflect what I would expect from a client at your height and an average build

    They're by no means average, but what you should be striving for.

    those are pretty serious.

    My current personal goals for 1RM B/S/D is 225/315/395.

    Current PR's are 205x4/225x2/185x8. Obviously I have a long way to go but that's what I'm gunning for ATM.

    Have only been seriously training since May (eating right/regular routine). Have been going to the gym for 2 years but never really pushed weight.

    Your personal goals are a good reach from where you are.

    Seem like most of us jumped the gun and gave you our number.

    :o

    I like the idea of having long and short term goals.

    Your goals can be the long and each week you can push for that extra 5 lbs. on compound lifts.

    Yeah but that's ok because that's actually what I want to hear. I look at myself and I think I'm limited to the numbers I've set. It's good for me to hear what other people think ya know?

    I believe it's important to set realistic, attainable goals but it's also good to think big. I'll meet my numbers. Sooner than later I hope. :cool:

    I set daily, weekly, monthly and 6 month goals. Those are private though until I have decent numbers. :rofl: + :mamoru:

    .

    Chances are you'll get discouraged if you have a set number in mind that is hundreds of pounds from fruition.

    That's why I track my lifts daily. I can tell immediately if I'm performing better than the week before and really that's my constant goal. Baby steps.

    Last week I started writing down exactly what I was going to do and what weights for each set. Rather than just going with an idea in mind and remembering my weights when I got home. So far, I really dig it.

    Thanks for the comments FN.

    At 6'1", fuck yeah I do. I expect them to be a fucking beast if they do their diet right. I'm only 5'8" 170lbs, so at 6'1", I would expect 225lbs bodyweight and some higher numbers than mine to correspond.

    duh, I thought you knew this shit

    personal trainers aka expert scam artists are almost never actually strong , big, or muscular. A lot of times they are worse off than their clients

    Sad..
