Well I'm 5'4", 132lbs and have a 1 rep max of 275lbs. I was where you were at with 225 for awhile...then I switched to an 8,6,4,2 routine and it shot up.
This is common in everything in life, not just weight lifting sir.
I'll take that.
What I posted wasnt meant to be so blatantly obvious. It sounded different in my head at the time lol
The best classes are 198-242 both raw and geared. There will be some exceptions to this (e.g. Schwab), but those are always the most competitive and best ratios.
Ya I noticed a lot of crazy numbers in the 198-220 weight classes.

I guess thats why I have been impressed with the smaller weight classes though. Saw 150lb'er press 330. Aint bad.
An old powerlifting record here in TN for the 165lb class for bp is like 420lbs. Just ridiculous. Granted, that was with SLP, which doesnt exist anymore. This is why I never bothered with powerlifting. U either have the genetics to win or u dont. Aint no way I'm gonna get to a 400+ bench without tons of Tren and weighing 180+. Seeing the record numbers was so discouraging.
