Well. since im trying to get back into shape, and figure i might take some video.. What is would be considered impressive weight to move for a video?
i cant do bent over rows owing to an old back injury... here are some EXs i can think of.. what weight would you say would be "impressive " to capture on video?

Flat barbell bench.
dumbell incline.
dumbell shoulder press..
Hammer strength machine rows ( kinda like doing bent over rows, but seated on a machine).

i dont deal lift or squat.. so thats all i can thing of..

so give me your opinion.. what kinda weight/reps would be considered "impressive"

Try and do your best.

I don't think that people have been posting videos here to look impressive, but rather to substantiate their lifts and/or prove points

if *you* think it's impressive then it probably is. ;)

Yeah dude, just post what you think is your best lift. The exercise doesn't matter, unless you're maxing out on dumbbell kickbacks or something.

Well, uhh, what weight can you do? I'd like to see a raw 5 plates on bench, 6-7 on squats, 7-8 on deads, maybe 140's on DB inclines... Much less is something I can see for myself in the gym.

my eventual goal is 505 on the bench at 250. thats my only strength goal left to reach.. squats and DLS are a no no for me.. I hurt my back a few years back and cant risk doing them;(..

i doubt i would post videos.. but im just trying to figure out at what point one is considered " strong" since i have never really considered myself as such even when i was moving decent weight..

i saw a guy at my gym DL 6 plates per side. i thought that was rather impressiv ;) heck 505 on bench sounds strong 2 me. then again i can only currently bench 105x6 ;)

I saw a guy DL about 600 pounds. Too bad he was juiced up.
