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.
Weight class: 198lb
strict curl: 165
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:
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)-- JB \m/

There are also people out there that know alot about exercise science and dont powerlift but very knowledgeable folks non the less.

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.

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.

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.

strict curl: never tried maxing on curls, don't care for them much.

11-09-2010, 10:28 PM
11-09-2010, 10:30 PM

Never heard of curls being in competition, I guess I live under a rock.

I dont use heavy weights to curl, if I even end up doing iso curls, and I see alot of big guys who use lighter weights than small guys in the gym too. Difference is, the small guy walks into the gym, walks over to the ez curl bar or hammer strength preacher curl machine, loads it up and "blasts his bi's" right out of the gate, I however, as well as other big guys, walk into the gym, do pullups, bb rows, hammer rows, pulldowns, db rows, t bar rows, then and only then, if we arent fried from a huge back workout, we will throw in some iso curl work, but at that point, bi's are torched and heavy weights arent happening. Thats when small guys get to feel like they are the shiz and tell their bro's they curl more than the "big guy" in the gym. comical...

I agree 100% that curls are the least of all functional strength tests but I don't care if it's finger curls, it's nice to be stronger then others in as many things as possible.
Now if I could borrow someones right hamstring I would love to get back to work on my squats and deads.
11-11-2010, 07:05 PM
Curls are pretty lame but, hey working your curl helps your row, vice versa right? ahhh anyways, I dont do bis anymore, only back workouts and pullups.
I have only one rep maxed bench once since last winter, so. there it is. I just started deads and squat about a month ago.
Also I know alot of guys who bench with shirts and or planks, aka not touching the chest and not doing a full rep. Ive been told by some lifters always touch chest on bench, some say it causes to much pull on the pecs/shoulders... I always touch chest if I had a shirt or plank I could probably bench 300, my lower part is what kills me because of long arms.
