It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

RRxtar 21 @ 180lbs. with a sprained wrist.

will giver a go again friday





we can come up with all kinds of different formulas and reasons why things arent fair to some people but the truth is, basing the challenges on bodyweight is as close to fair as i can think of. it is a direct representation of your strength vs your body. and the idea is to keep it simple and fun. you dont win an award for doing the best that week.

I'll be lucky to get past 4 as well I think...

Berz out.

was it watching me lift the weight and firmly slide it on the bar that did it for you?

depends how much you weigh, how long you've been lifting, etc.

"Strong enough" is very subjective. One may think pushing 135lb is strong, while someone else will think pushing 225lb is.
Set a goal for yourself, and not worry about what others are lifting.
Just continue your Stronglifts routine, and strength will come naturally.

AANTHONYY - 15 @ 175

looks like 15's my magic number...squats&wide grips were 15 too
...feeling very "evened out" right meow, not sure if that's good or bad.

I say anything above 250 is deecent, above 400 is advanced. When I first started @ the gym I was 135, within 2 months I was benching my bodyweight doing 5 sets of 5, hitting chest twice a week. I've always had so much strength benching, but I don't even have a chest to show for it

if I did this challenge a year ago it would have been waayyy higher. I had an epiphany a year into my training and realized "fuck benchpress!" moar squat, moar deadlift, moar pullup
