There are a few on the board, and I've dabbled but never really got into it.. You have a question or just scouting?

I've been known to throw down a weight or two.

In ages past... topped out at 405 on the bench... got bruses on my back and started to get scared that no body could spot that kind of tonnage...

the guy I used to lift with was up in the 375 range.

We actually figured out the horse power we were developing where 1 horse power = 550 ft-lbm/sec. We could bench about 12 - 14" and if you could knock out 2 in a second @ 275# you were right at 1 horse power.

I think 1.281 horse power was my personal best.

Really adds perspective when you jump on a 100+ hp bike.



Need to know how to install your Rifleman's 1/5th throttle insert? click me

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.~unknown~

Nice.
With summer here now and my re-found love of cycling I have dialed it back a bunch.
Off the top of my head these were some of my heavies this winter (not single reps but minimum of 3):
Squats: 600 plus
Deadlifts: 595
Incline: 405 (455 for 1.5 so I don't count it)
Dumbell Press: 150 for 6 reps
Shrugs: 595+
Leg Press: 14.5 pps for 1+ reps

ALL LIFTS WERE DRUG FREE - I'm very proud of this as in the past I was not clean and my lifts were much heavier than this
