    What are you max stats?

    Im a bodybuilder so I usually lift in the 6-15 rep range and dont work on strength but w.e il post for the hell of it.

    Im 190lbs

    Bench max: 315lbs
    Dead lift: 505lbs
    squat: 315lbs

    I could possibly do more but this is what recently tired after working with high reps for a while.

    ahhh shit..... I have no clue.....

    I use dumbells to bench mostly..... 125l-130lbs ea usually. Squats I just use a hackswuat machine and leg press for mass builders. Barbell squats tear my knee up as it's bone on bone......

    I admittedly havn't deadlifted in quite a while..... was around 495 or so I believe..... probably not even close to that now.

    I try to get about 10-12 reps for most stuff.

    Thats true alot of guys do lie...its like when you meet a guy in the gym whos 140lbs soaking wet, doing curls in the squat rack says to you "I use to bench 300lbs last year but I hurt my shoulder...I was jacked!" lol love that line! I remember way back in highschool this kid went around highschool telling people he maxed 365lbs on bench and that they were pussies for only being able to put up 185 lol I worked out with him one time and could hardly get 205 off the rack haha he told me his shoulder hurt or some bull shit lol

    Or full of shit.

    From my experience, most people who claim they have huge lifts (most of the time even reasonably high lifts) do 1/2 or 1/4 reps. I workout at a regular 24 (not a golds gym like I used to) and I am the only one who puts more than 3 plates on the squat bar. I am not strong and never claim to be but most of the time the people who do are fos.

    There are always exceptions but 90% of the time its true.

    Agreed! Plus some people's definitions of different lifts are open to interpretation. Some guys don't go all the way down when they bench, some guys only go 90 degrees when they squat, some people go half way down when they shoulder press. So whatever people post really doesn't matter unless you're a competitive weightlifter/powerlifter/strongman where absolute poundages matter.

    Only thing I've ever came close to maxing is flat bench. Most I've ever done was 275 for 3 reps. I was just under 190lbs at the time. If I tried a three rep max now it'd prolly be around 245 if I'm lucky.

    At 42 years old i RARELY max. My max lifts are usually in the 4-5 rep range. I do like flat bench db's though, and when i go heavy i usually press 130's for 4-5 reps after some warm ups. That's good enough for me.

    You do realize that if what you are saying is true you would be the greatest power litter that ever lived for your weight class

    fvck man.... i'm 27 and don't feel much need to do more than 130lb dumbells. Bodybuilding isn't about how much you can lift..... its about what you look like. 130lb dumbells still stress the muscles enough for me to grow..... thats all that matters. Why risk tearing a pec?

    I bench solo, no spotter, so i never go for max anything. we have a cheap bench in our gym, and I had something like (250lbs?) on the bar (hard to tell, all the weights are in kg, and i really don't care anyways). but after about the 4th rep, the bench got kinda wobbly at the top, so I said fuk it and just racked it.

    to me, it's all just numbers anways, and in the past, I chased the big numbers. then my form started going to sh1t, and ran into trouble by overstraining the wrong muscles. So fuk the ego, and who cares about the big numbers. I just focus on form, keep my reps in a decent range (6 to 12 or so). And i try not to do that very laaaast rep, the one where I'm shaking so bad that it feels like my eyeballs are going to pop out. But I'm almost 50 my lads, and you guys are just kids, so do what's right for you.

    yep. me too. I do leg presses instead.

    My forte has usually been one armed curls (no spotter needed for safety), so in the past, I could push it. Last year, before I got hurt, i was up to reps of 80lbs... not bad for an old fart?

    Well that's exactly what i'm saying. I could probably get 150's for 2 reps but like you said, why take the risk? Pushing big weight around used to be important to me but that was just my ego and me testing myself. Now, i typically do all exercises in the 10-15 rep range (but sometimes i'll do stupid stuff like seeing if i can curl the olympic bar 50-75 times) for 4-5 weeks then i'll go heavier for 1 week on all exercises just to mix things up and see where i'm at. Super sets, Giant sets, their all included.

    And that's why you got hurt.... Stop lifting so heavy, you/we are old and break more easy..

    I agree with a lot of the post. I have NO idea. I do a few max reps dumbbell curls with 50s. My max bench is 4+ reps with 250 lbs? Maybe it's only 240 lbs? I hurt my shoulder several years ago with dumbbell bench 110s, not sure how many. I only remember it hurt later and has hurt ever since.

    I do some deads but light due to 3 ruptured disk. Leg press is better but only around 300 lbs+

    If I can get the size I want lifting lighter I'm all for it but I dont think so. I just try to go up SLOW...

    well, i've done a total rethink since getting hurt. you are 110% correct about the concerns those our age should have when working out.

    I get a lot of comments about how fit I look, blah blah blah.... one of these years, it will be along with the phrase "for your age...." but I'm not there yet.

    I walked into ops this morning, and these kids, 25 to 30 yrs old were doing pushups. So I ask, what's the bet gentlemen? they are like, huh? So I pull a 20 out my wallet and say let's make things interesting. Everyone stick a 20 up, and whoever does the most "correct" pushups takes all.

    Chicken shits! Never let an old man fuk with you like that. Always stick the 20 on the table.... (he could user the money!!)

    I have to remind myself all the time...especially while on. I get into that mode of heavier, heavier then something always happens and im pissed at myself. I started doing a lot of stretching before training and taking a solid week off when I know my body is to the point of going to far. Its worked well, shoulders dont hurt, back isnt tight. You cant be a hero in the gym if you can get in there to train.

    I've got 99 problems......but my squat/dead ain't one !!

    It doesnt matter how good looking she is, some where, some one is tired of her shit.

    Light travels faster then sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

    Yeah it's fun to go someplace where the boys are and given the chance to show what you got a little watching their jaws drop.
    I was in the Philippines almost 2 years ago with the GF. We had just gotten back from a little island resort for the weekend and were waiting for a ride. The area we where in was a little remote and I saw a group of young boys not to far from us looking our way and obviously making some plans. You know how you get a feeling sometimes and know there is going to be trouble? They are typical 16-19 yr 120 lb scrawny Asian kids. From their distance all they saw was an Asian girl with an older Foreigner. I'm sure in their mind they are thinking it's an easy roll to make a few bucks. As they are coming a little closer (for no apparent reason) I had already given the GF a heads up. I casually took my 2nd layer shirt off, semi long sleeve leaving only my tank top. It was funny to watch them stop dead in their tracks, start talking and walking away from us in the other direction. LOL I got asked at least 5x a day if I was a boxer or MMA LOL

    Like you said, dont under estimate us old guys. Now I need to get my chin ups back up to 30 someday but I am 40lbs heavier than I was back then.
