Maxes?

  1. Maxes?


    I weigh 135-138 what should my maxes be for bench press, squat, deadlift , and shoulder press?


  2. 1 1/2 X your body weight for bench. The others I'm not sure...google it.

  3. Depends on many factors, a large one being whether you're training for strength or not.

    Here is a chart from one source listing strength standards for different lifts in different categories: Weightlifting Performance Standards

    Check out the description of what the different categories mean. Also, press = shoulder press.

  4. That's a good link. Thanks.

  5. Here are another set of standards. I'm not sure how it matches up to the first link. Also, it's confusing because it takes into consideration a sum of the weights from three different lifts rather than breaking it down by lifts: http://www.rawpowerlifting.com/pdf/R...nStandards.pdf

    And another similar one from USAPL: http://www.usapowerlifting.com/lifte...ipfclass.shtml (this one is in kilos; sadly I don't know if this is raw or geared)

  6. Yeah that's guys

    Sweet. I'm a Class 2 powerlifter.

    To the OP:

    When I started working out, I was told that a good goal was to bench your body weight, squat 1.5x your body weight, and deadlift 2x your body weight. Once you reach that, increase everything by .5x your body weight. Then just keep going until you're satisfied.

  8. These are good links guys. I guess I am more harsh on myself than I thought based on those charts lol
