    Hello comrades.

    I wanted to start a thread where we could share our physical accomplishments in a quantitative manner. Without any pissing contests please. Ill lead by example:

    Im 5'8, 153 pounds

    Best interval cardio:
    2.15 miles
    16:33
    307.1 ft elevation higher at destination (harder than it sounds I think)
    33 degrees farenheit

    Power lifts:

    Max bench 230 pounds
    Max barbell row 200 pounds (probably my most impressive lift)
    Max military press 120 pounds :(
    Max barbell curl 120 pounds

    Body weight exercises

    40 elevated leg dips
    15 behind the head pull ups (for realz)
    120 second plank with fifty pounds on my back

    As for distance running ive never exceeded twelve miles.

    I know im not too impressive, but im fairly balanced id say

    Recent bests only. And numbers dont matter, just that youre working out is what counts :)

    Well that's good mate, How i wish to go out and have time doing work-out. Until now I haven't loss weight when I am controlling myself from eating too much and even do jogging sometimes.

    Welcome to the community,

    I'm a bodybuilder and have been training for give or take 10 years now. I don't max out or calculate the lbs on any movements, simply because it doesn't mean anything to me. I've been training long enough to where I'm well in tune with my body and adjust accordingly.

    Congrats on your accomplishments.

    I'm 6'2, 240lbs. I'm at 12% bf and currently cutting down. A general idea of my lifting stats, I rep 3 full sets with 3+ plates on each side on the flat bench, +3 and a 25 on the decline, +2 plates on the incline. 20 pullups, +85 lbs dumbbell curls (full sets), +1 plate and 20lbs on barbel curl (full sets).. and my run time is about 22mins in 3 miles

    BTW, it's good to see another lifter here.

    I've been benching my pillow at 3 sets of 15 reps. I'm almost to the stage of adding another pillow.

    This, in itself, is a pissing contest.

    Do you understand that?

    Tell me about your cutting phase. I think i got my diet worked out right finally but i wanna hear your workout routine.

    Im down 109 pounds in a month and my power lifts have increased but not too much, regardless i think it means my diet is working

    Heh, tell that to my knees. Running for that distance at that weight is not good for them. It's actually one of the reasons I'm cutting down.

    How old are you and how long have you been training for? If you don't want to put your personal info on here, I'd understand

    The way I lift has changed since reading of a Univ. of Michigan study that revealed to build muscle, it was not necessary to lift heavy, but to lift to failure. I used to do something called static contractions (google it) with really heavy weights, then I killed my back on a 1/4 squat one day. I only lift heavy now if I'm on a Smith machine, but I find it better to just lift at 75% max for as many reps as possible. I'm also getting into more explosive stuff and mixing in a bit of heavy bag drills. For fun, I throw one of these in to keep it interesting:
