I've finally gotten around to it and decided to post my pics as a motivator to get me working harder. BTW, my stats are 17 yrs old, 155 lbs, 5'10-11". (My apologies for them being on Xanga and for being so small...)

Cool, now lift some weights! Whats are your goals? Youll probably gain good for a while if you stay consistent and eating alot.

I've been doing very basic lifting since age 12, I've been doing wbb1 for about 2 or 3 months now (this pic was taken i think last september). What I really need is to up my food intake, not quality right now as much as quantity (of the veggies and meats).

Goals? um... to weight somewhere between 180 and 200, more if my frame can handle it.
Bench- I'd like to get over 400
Squat- 400-500
Leg Press- Long term goal of 600
Dead- Long term goal of 1000 (I like having large goals, but my first time ever dl'ing I easily did 320, and now I can do 400 DL. so I think I can do it)

seems like u have a good base to start with, keep working out hard and like u said, up ur food intake and u should reach those goals!

Andrew

ps. in ur goals u mentioned squatting 400-500 and leg pressing 600, if u can squat 400-500 u could easily leg press 1000. make that goal bigger! :)

So I should be able to dead and LP the same amount? or is a 1000 DL really not that much for a true experienced weight lifter?

it's a big dl for sure, i don't think anyone on wbb can do that, maybe 1 or 2. i believe the wr is somewhere in the 1000-1300 range, not even close to sure, somebody else would know better.

LOL! 1000lb deadlift? Yeah, that's a little much. I'd start with 95lbs and work my way up with proper form if I were you. The strongest people here are lifting in the 500's and they're quite strong. I think Belial topped 600, but I'm not even positive.

i'm doing 400 for deadlift already without ever doing them before, and i am pretty scrawny as you can tell from the pic. i can do it with enough work

Yes but he is asking how your form is. A beginner as light as you does NOT walk up to a bar one of the first couple times deadlifting and pull a 400 with any kind of form. Are you locking out?

:withstupi
my thoughts exactly, i have never seen someone with that big a gap between their bench and their deads...im not doubting what you posted...im just doubting if you are doing the excersize right...

i started off with 300, and the bench press is really weird, the leverage for it is all wrong. with a regular bb i could bench more i believe, but genetically men in my family have much stronger lower bodies than upper.

Looking at your numbers, there's no chance you're pulling 400 properly. I'd suggest seriously working on your form before you get involved with pulling heavy numbers. A lot of very big guys take 405 as a feat.

brehm no offense, but there's no way you're even close to deadlifting even 300. you can work at it and get there, though.

I've looked at my form, and compared it to different site's photos of how to properly do the movement and to their desciptions and I'm doing it the exact same way. Now what I've had come to me as being the reason why I might be able to lift such a high weight is, I use a low pulley system on the home gym I have. Could it be possible that because it's a pulley, it causes the weight to actually weigh "less" in a way?

Also, how could you do a deadlift improperly so that you could lift more weight w/o injuring your lower back?

Just don't do it properly..most injuries build up over time, then, BANG! Why can't I feel anything?

uhh.... don't do it properly? wouldn't that cause damage?

A deadlift is performed with an olympic bar and weights at both ends. There shouldn't be any pulley involved. I'm also unfamiliar with any pulley system that has a 400 lb stack. What you're explaining doesn't make much sense, so a picture would be incredibly helpful.

Well, right now I have no choice but to use this horrible home gym set. Once my family and I move and I have gym access, I'll be able to do the techniques properly. I guess really, I haven't truly tested my BP, Dl, and squat with a barbell. I can probably bench more and DL less than what I have listed.

I just don't see it you doing 300lbs, much less 400.

I think you're smoking crack or your home gym set is one of those plastic sets that was never filled (with water or cement, etc)!

Or are you going off of some machine plate stack (pulley system) which 400 really equals about 200lbs?

Unless, you've been doing manual labor loading bags of concrete since you were 12 or other series lifting I just can't believe it.

Prove it with a video... showing you using free weights (olympic weight set) Might as well make it 405lbs.... 4 - 45lb plates on each side.

At 155 lbs, that is ****ing impressive. Props man. You're on the road to being one strong mf'er!

A deadlift is performed with a barbell & plates. Anything else is not a deadlift.

Good luck w/ your goals.

ok ok, sorry for offending you guys! is it illegal to make a mistake here or something? I do work at the loading dock of a garden center loading bags at 6 hours a day during the week and 12 hours a day on saturdays, but I probably can't do 400, I can do 300 with a real bar and everything, but since I don't have the equipment to do a "true" deadlift I guess I can't find out until I get to a gym. sorry for your wasted time...

JBrehm, don't worry everyone makes mistakes. As for deadlifting 1000, I thought the world record was 933 or something? Don't do deadlifts on a pulley, use an Olympic bar.

i will once i have access to one. I hate using this ****ty home gym, I want to use the real deal and get those stabalizing muscles into play... i'll just have to wait max 3 months before i move

1000 has been done with straps
