Some new numbers for me...

Adena...female

Height: 5'1"
Weight: 134

Deadlift:205
Squat: 175

Unfortunately, I'm really struggling with bench right now, so nothing exciting to report there.

The numbers I listed earlier would put my squat around 530lbs and my deadlift around 495lbs based on a 1RM calculator I used. My bodyweight is now 184 and (hopefully) rising.

Can you add me to the table with the numbers I posted earlier.

Sorry for missing you. You are on there now. Feel free to check my math on your total.

Solid lifting man, but those projections are just estimates, they shouldn't be used on the table. There are all kinds of reasons why someone might fall well short of their projected 1rm.

True. That's fair, I'll have to try a max soon then.

If that is the consensus, I will stop allowing the use of 1rm calculators. I asked a long time ago, but no one seemed to have an opinion on it then, so I went ahead and allowed it. Personally, 1rm calculators calculate my lifts low as hell, because I am extremely fast twitch all around. I know many others will have their maxes overestimated, though.

Ah sorry, I missed the previous discussion. I only check in from time to time.

Personally I don't see any upside in using a projected max. Their accuracy varies so much from person to person.

Plus I enjoy maxing out :wink:

I'm sort of against it. It didn't seem most people minded, but imo it doesn't count till you actually lift it. For instance, my projected 1rm total would be 770. I've never actually maxed out but I doubt if I could hit most of the lifts needed for that.

PS. You can update my squat to 240.
PPS. xCx needs to get on here.

No problem. From now on I will only accept true max attempts. If you haven't done a max attempt, you can give me your best rep lift, and I will count it towards your total at the weight it is at. So, for example, if you did 405x3 on the deadlift, tell me you did 405x3, and I will count the deadlift part of the total as 405. If you want your true total, load that bar up and figure it out.
