    What do you lift at what weight? Bench/strict curl/dead/squat RAW


    Hey, I'm new to this forum and I'm just curious as to who are the strong guys around here. That way I know who to get advise from and maybe other could benefit from some of mine. Post up your raw 1RM in Bench/strict curl/dead/squat. Also your body weight or the weight class you compete in and age.

    Me
    Age: 29
    Weight class: 198lb
    Bench: 375
    strict curl: 165
    dead: 400
    Squat: 345

    I have a weak lower body but my upper body is ok. I only started training legs about a year ago. I was only interested in a big upper body growing up then I realized over is much more important.

    I'm not one of the strongest guys around here, but here's my info:

    Age: 32
    Weight class: 242 (usually weigh-in between 232-238), tested
    Raw bench: 405-ish
    Curl: I NEVER curl!
    Raw dead: 600-ish
    Raw squat: 480-500 (haven't gone ME in a while)

    Punthra, Thundergod, Tomahawk, GoHardorGoHome, Volcom come to mind but there are a plethora of guys who can lift big up in here.

    I suppose we wont be chatting much, I'm pretty weak j/k, if you have any questions, let me know.

    Good numbers guys! I have been dealing with a lot of injuries lately. Just got over a shoulder injury, and then I tore a small piece of my hammy. Been a week and I can still barely walk. On top of that now I sick. I will go for a new best of 380 bench next week. I will try to get a video of it.

    Just benched my first 500 raw @ 269 lbs. This was YEARS of training.

    YouTube - Chris Popovich 500 lb Raw Bench Press





    Pulled 600 in a comp a couple years ago. Really hurt my back a little while after that comp and I'm slowly working my way back.

    Thanks brother, it was a long road for me. 420 @ 198 is awesome. Eventually I hope to bench 500 @ 242, but that's a distant goal...

    Wow. I'm about 190 lbs, I can dead in the mid to high 400s and squat in the high 300s. Obviously I'm not a powerlifter. But you all blow my ass away in the bench press, I'm at maybe 275.

    Don't let it get you down. Bench is by far most peoples hardest lift. I trained nothing but bench and curl since I was a kid. It was the only lifts I thought were cool back then. Hahaha! Now I know better and I am struggling to get my deads and squats to a respectable level.

    I have only been to a couple meets but compared to all other lifts bench is usually where most lack. A guy in my weight class pulled 635lbs but struggled to bench over 315. It also has a lot to do with genetics. Long arms and short legs make for a badass squatter/dead lifter but makes for a horrible bencher. Look up the records in any federation and you will see what I mean. It is very rare to see a guy who can dead and squat that puts up good bench numbers and vice versa.

    Finally over benched over 400!!! This cycle has worked wonders! This is my second cycle and between the two I have made crazy gains this year! Next week I plan on taking video of my 405 bench. I currently weigh 205lbs so it will be easy to make weight for my next meet.

    Awesome #s for your weight and your age! I don't know where I'd be right now if I could lift that weight at your age. I can't squat or dead that at MY age!
