    not that many of you will care about this... but finally after a TONNE for a few months ive finally been able to clear 100kg (220lb) @ 80kg (176lb).

    i also deadlifted 130kg (286lb) .... i was impressed for my first go, but still a long way to go i suppose... but im gunna start training for deadlifts and see how high i can get them

    but for all those with goals... just keep training and try not to lose focus

    Congrats on the bench man that is amazing.
    Yeah if you do heaps of distance running then I'm sure you have no need for squats.
    Keep up the hard work.

    thanks fella's

    i did rowing... hence we had this squat competition. it was to horizontal thighs too, it had to be done at a rate of 30 squats per min so it was no easy task.

    i then took up some long distance running and i lost all my strenght and weight from rowing... i went down to about 67kg from about 80kg and it was terrible...

    my max benchpress at this time (the end of 2002) was about 55kg

    so yeah...im slowing catching back up... but good things to come

    Once did a 100 squats at a plate a side.. to say the least, my legs were rather sore after that day. Wasn't really hard to do, just the burning wouldn't stop after probably 30.

    As for the bad experience with squats.. I'm a huge fan of squats, but I'm not one to say you can't build a good set of legs without them. Not to mention if you do a lot of long distance running, working legs becomes a rather difficult problem. Hell, I'm biking everywhere right now and that's no fun.. so I imagine your life is a whole lot worse.
