Good time of the year for this quote, from the late great Jimmy V..

I'm on the same page, at least for my goals are pretty close to these numbers..

OHP - 175
Bench - 315
Squat - 355
Deadlift - 505

Those are without consideration to ratio between each other, but I certainly wouldn't neglect any one part of my body too much.

I had a guy on an old softball team, upper body was immense. Easily pushed 315 bench around, big arms and not fat...but he could squat a damn thing. Looked so funny to see tank with chicken legs..
