I'm a similar frame to that guy but probably taller and bit bulkier.

A professional lifter...lmao, I'm in medical school; I'd never entertain the thought of such a shit job

There was no mocking tone, but clearly you took offense.

No need to dismiss or lower professional lifting. Was just asking why you don't do it considering your strength and somewhat interest if you're keen enough to post progress in this thread.

Eh, then I apologize for coming back at you that hard. 300 lbs - I'd call my max bench press, meaning I can probably do 4-5 with proper technique. I've never tried one rep maximum because I don't trust a spotter enough with such heavy weight but I'd venture to say it's around 310-315 and not much more than that. I haven't tried 300 again since that day but I'm putting up around 3x8 at 250-260 on my chest workout days.

How much do you typically bench, deadlift, and barbell row?

I'm 215lbs at 6'2ish and I'd do similar to you on bench. Maybe 275lbs for 6 reps and 4 sets.
Deadlift is my best lift and I pyramid set up to about 450-500lbs for one rep max depending on the day. Like yesterday, I tried to do 500lbs, which is the most I've ever done, and it just resulted in the bar flexing a little and me getting a headache. Other days I've had where I've lifted it and felt like I could do a little more, but usually stick there because I don't have a belt or straps, and I can't really hold anymore with or without chalk.

Barbell row I haven't done in forever. I do so many other types of rows, but I wouldn't have a clue.

^ Provided you play your sport well enough and take care of your joints/muscles and make sure they don't have too much residual tension, then that shouldn't really be a problem.

I go to the gym too but I am not big at all. This is probably because of my diet as I have to eat more, specially more meat.

Oh ok that makes much more sense now, i thought you were using a regular bench to put that up. I can typically do about 30-40 more lbs on a smith machine bench then on a regular bench

Anybody here ever try going through Convict Conditioning?



I decided that since its the New Year, ill start off with the basics of bodyweight, but damn after doing this, i feel humbled. Just did Inverted arows and Kneeling Push-Ups today and wow, the standards for progression among the movements is no laughing matter. The Kneeling PUs werent really a problem but i couldnt believe i found myself struggling a but with pulling off 10 strict inverted rows, and theyre just Step 2 in the Pull-Up series.

will start a more intense workouts next week for sure... since i started going to the gym ( 2 months ) i have been only working out 3-4 times a week and only 2 exercises for every part of the body...
i gained around 7-8 pounds in those 2 months but im not sure if any of that is muscle ( my lats got noticeably bigger but thats because i do pullups all the time )

Finally found this thread again. I found this group called Bar-Barians and I've been working on their requirements to join.
Physical requirements include:
1. 5 Muscle Ups
2. 45 Dips
3. 25 Pull-ups
4. 55 Push Ups
5. and 5 Muscle Ups, within 6 mins.
Pretty intense. I'm hitting a wall at the 25 pullups, I can only do about 15 before failure. The dips and pushups are fine, but the 10 muscle ups and 25 pullups are difficult.
