Got some new PBs in the end of december at my last meet of the year.
Squat is now 190 kg (though i wanted 200 so bad :( ) and bench is 115 kg from a few days after the comp.
Wilk's are down a bit because my bw is now at 81 kg but increased strength is most important, I think.
Actually I didn't even gain weight. I just didn't do a water cut before the comp.

Hey asparagus, what are the thread rules regarding using dumbbells and also calculating 1 rep Max's. I got a huuuge PB on my bench but it's with dumbbells, cheers man

You cannot calculate a barbell bench from what you did with dumbbells, same as you cannot (accurately) derive a 1RM from a rep PB.
Would be like calculating your time for a 200m dash based on your 110m hurdles. It's just not the same.

Hey everyone - I've updated the final posts and created a new table for 2014. Find it here:
http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=36345

Mellon, I've updated your lifts and bodyweight. Mini Forklift is once again barely in the lead!

Ross, there really isn't a rule or way to convert DB into BB, as Mellon replied. However, since this is just a casual list, I'm willing to assume your barbell bench is close to the weight on both dumbells. Not everyone has access to the same equipment, so I'm happy to include your dumbell lifts. We can continue the discussion on the 2014 thread linked above if anyone wants, but please post your dumbell lifts anyway and unless there is a large contingent to argue against it I'll allow it.

Please do not post any more replies to this thread, use the 2014 thread instead!

Mods, please lock this thread, but don't delete it. Thanks!
