Bodyweight lift numbers?
I know we all have different goals, but I think I've figured out a good way of measuring my progress towards my goals of explosive strength and muscular endurance, which is how many times I can lift my bodyweight. Saturday I was able to bench my bodyweight 15 times, which was towards the end of a hard bench session. I'm pretty happy with that at this point, but it got me to thinking. . .

Do you guys know how many times you can lift your bodyweight? I'm not sure how many times I can squat it, but it's probably around 20.

In my 20's I was around 200-210 pounds. My numbers were about:

--Squat: 20
--Bench: 12

Right now I am around:

--Squat: 14
--Bench: 8-10
--Deadlift: 20-25

Squats ~30
Deadlift ~30
Bench ~15

But I'm really good at reps.

Not really done much lifting at bodyweight: the closest is at around 195lbs bodyweight I did 220lbs for 20 reps in the Bench. That was after my heavy sets.

messing around with my bodyweight would be very very useless. Its about 33% of my squat max...

Haha, that's why I mentioned differing goals. Where I'm going, 1rm's don't mean squat. I've probably lost 20lb.+ on my bench max (which wasn't that great in the first place, 285 @ 210 bodyweight), while taking my non-stop pushups from 35-50, so using reps for progression instead of weight is perfect for me.

Obviously, this is the polar opposite of power lifting.

Squat bodyweight - 24 reps
I'm approaching a BW Bench, and the DL will come soon.

Guessing you mean without stopping, so BW deadlift x25. Over 95 minutes, 200 reps, but took breaks when i had to.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 02:05 PM.
