    My frame and leverages (huge when it comes to power output) are pretty much ideal for handling heavy weights, but its also what gives me my ogre-ish build.

    Heh. I'll say. I would crumble under that weight, no matter how long I trained for.

    I have the same problem. I think most people are suprsied when they see the weights I lift with. I can deadlift and squat a good bit, but my bench is HORRIBLE. 275 was my max. I'm 5'8", 218lbs, about 13%bf. I should be getting way more.

    Well... you can pretty much take everybody's digits and multiply that by .2 - .25 and then take the product and subtract that from the original number Since I'm not macho and I'm not into untamed movements I'll be honest about what I do. Whatever.

    Incline Dumbell Press: 100lbs each arm, 10-12 times with a good negative and explosive concentric. Some days I can only or will only do 80-85s if my shoulders are beaten.

    Overhead bar shoulder press (standing) - I will just man handle 175 for 10 reps and envision the weight being a corpse.

    Dumbell shoulder press - 85 lbs each arm for 10-12 reps. Yes, my shoulders are as strong as my chest almost. Whatever.

    Squats - Every so often I do squats I'll just load 225 on the bar and crank out 20 reps straight through for a couple sets with virtually perfect precision.

    Power cleans - Once in a while I'll do these first to maintain good strength and form at this explosive, awesome, compound movement. I will clean 185 lbs for 10 reps with great tempo and precision.

    Curls? - My biceps are too big as it is. I don't do these.
    Freedom means nothing here.

    Yet... at the same time, I am getting emotional as I just watched the end of Star Wars episode III. Weird, I haven't cried in a while.

    So basically you're a ****. And why couldn't you just say take 75% of the given number?

    I have to wonder why you wouldn't believe peoples claims, did some dude break your heart in the past?

    Obviously you shouldn't believe other peoples claims because they claim that they are doing more than him, and thats just not possible

    Bench: 285

    DB Bench: 100's * 6.............been a while since ive used DB's.
    Bar Incline: 225 * 4.

    DB Press: 80's * 10

    BB Curl: 100 * 10. Have been stuck here for months but arms have grown nontheless.

    Squat: Don't even ask. Its below 200. I've only just started doing them again.

    All of this at the measly weight of 240lbs. Sad i know.

    By end of next year i want my bench @ 315 withhopefully a lower body weight.

    Hey, as long as you're making progress and as long as you're happy with the progress you are making, that's all that should matter. We all start somewhere. Do you think Nick started benching 700 overnight? Personally I recently started squatting again because I've always had problems with my knees. I front squatted 235 for 8 and my knees were screaming! But they feel a lot better than they used to. So what if I don't use a lot of weight. I've been happy with my leg development over the past two months since I started hitting the legs hard like I used to. It feels great. By the way, I've noticed that lunges have really helped with my knee problems.

    very true i know. Building up is a long process but the numbers are going up so i shouldn't complain. My problem is trying to cut but maintaining strength. I've always been a little tubby but im 6'2 so i can hide it but I'd like to get back to 220 with the same strength levels i have now if not more..........damn i hate cardio

    You and me both brother. Trust me, the only way you'll maintain strength while cutting is if you do it over a long period of time. As you lose weight, especially rapidly, you're going to lose some strength.

    That dude is a dumbass. Most Powerlifters don't lie about there numbers since we compete in meets and the numbers are recorded. Everyones results are on PowerliftingWatch.com if your that skeptical or think there lieing.

    PumpingIron, my homo friend... You've got some hard-ons for me lately in the forums. Maybe you should drop it before I drop you.
