What does Weight X mean to you?
A simple idea I had for a thread. ITT (in this thread) you post a number of pounds or kilo grams that was or is significant to you and why it is so. It could be a max that was important, or a light weight that 'represents the first step in progression' etc. Maybe something involving a story.

My biggest would be...


After my comeback to the iron in 2007 I worked my tail off and really wasn't watching numbers too much. I had never really focused on numbers and number goals as much as progression.

One day I realized I might have a shot at a 500 pound squat. I tried it and hit it.

That was the first time I have ever been excited about a specific number, and started my transition over to more of a strength focused mindset.

For me a signifigant number will always be 315, or 3pps. I know it's nothing to guys who move seirous iron, but it's a signifigant milestone for people who move weight as a hobby, and most people who even try to be serious in a gym will never move it with good form. I can rep out with it for dead lifts and squats, but it'll take some more time and work to get it on bench.

20kg, because it's the first time, this year, that I managed to jerk it with the left arm and never thought I would be able to do so even though it was easy with the right arm; it just seemed out of reach, for the left arm, but now, it means that the next load up is not necessarily out of reach either.

600. I want to get to 600kg. Bench 150kg, deep squat 200kg, deadlift 250kg.. Raw, using just belt. That is my dream. And Im pissed that my training partner is already there! :(

The number I squatted raw at my last meet in memory of Jesse Israel, a good guy who sadly passed this year before he could beat me to it.

A squat I've had my eyes set on for a long time and one I've been inching closer toward every passing day. With a lot of luck, I hope to hit it within a year and a half. "Only" 75lbs to go!

315 strict seated military press. I missed today. I hate missing a lift I thought I would have.

300 lbs

It's the weight of a standard Olympic barbell set sold at stores. I've always wanted the ability to just walk into a store and put that dude overhead. But since I don't train for it...

180 kilos was a big goal in the squat for me, so much so that I stood still at 170 for a good couple years.

I can't quite recall what spiked my confidence, but the first time I squatted 180 I doubled it! Imagine that after attempting it for a couple years. Then within just a couple of months I had shot up to 210kg.

Power of the mind eh!
