Your average Joe probably has a 1:1 ratio of bench weight to body mass so you're way above the rest in that department.

All that weight on the shoulders really puts a strain on me lol. I just really didn't get in to squats to tell you the truth. I know it's an all around workout but I don't like it lol guess I'm weird!Originally Posted by jimbuick

Thanks a lot! All the guys I go to the gym with are HUGE! Almost all of them compete and are crazy strong! So I was wondering how I stood. 4 of the guys hold Kentucky strongman state, and national titles!Originally Posted by vidapreta

Almost nobody likes it bro. If you like squat day you're obviously doing it wrong. You're numbers look good, hard to tell because proper form makes a big difference and Idk what your form looks like but if you aren't squatting you're definitely doing something wrong. At this point I would just say start squatting bro, start light and work on technique because you don't want to get hurt but you really do need to squat, and eat more lol.Originally Posted by tcombs911

Do you track macros? You probably should, I notice that people, including myself, tend to think they're eating more than they are until they start tracking it.Originally Posted by tcombs911
Also depending on your technique your lifts may be significantly higher, or lower, than what is listed.

Never tracked macros before. To tell you the truth I've never even heard of it haha! I do the sumo DL and a competitive style bench press. I'll get you all a video to see what I'm doing right/wrongOriginally Posted by jimbuick

Have you seen elitefts so you think you can bench series?Originally Posted by tcombs911
You can get phone apps for tracking macros and total calorie consumption. Its definitely worth doing.

I'm 5'10" 160lbs and my 1RM is 275... benching your body weight for reps is considered average, double your weight puts you in the top 33%
You are your own maker. Train dirty.

It works for tracking. The calculator in there will give you a rough estimate of your calories required to maintain but depending on the one you got it may or may not let you input specific macronutrient goals.Originally Posted by tcombs911
What I do is I use the calorie total to start and gauge my results from what I see at that level for a few weeks before I decide if I need to raise or lower total calories. You will also want to change the percentages of macros to suit your goals. Like getting 1g per lb of bw in protein and .3g per pound in fats and then fill in the rest with carbs.

So you're saying 1 out of 3 people bench double their bw or more?Originally Posted by kdeome
Lol I feel a lot like your just making up numbers.

Thanks a lot man, I was so confused I didnt know if I was suppose to eat a lot of carbs and a lot of proteins or what.Originally Posted by jimbuick

Well you know that 96.82 % of statistics are made up...
I can guarantee that nowhere near 33% of people or lifters can bench double bodyweight... Most natural raw powerlifters can't bench double bodyweight. Most non-natural raw powerlifters can't bench double their own bodyweight. In fact Daniel Greene who just broke the all time world record for raw powerlifting at 220 only benched double bodyweight AFTER cutting 30lbs for his competition. The Rhino, Stan Efferding is another one of the top raw powerlifters... he doesn't bench double bodyweight either.

It is amazing you are like this...specially since my team captain is raw, he is the Junior National Champion and just got sponsored to the next Worlds meet...and he has a 335 bench at 180~ right now...so forgive me if I am doubtful.
