i've been up to 196, and its just too much weight for me. i still like to do other things like run, play soccer, climb smokestacks (work related). possibly 198 in the future, but that would be the max. i know i'm relatively tall for 181 (5' 8-9"), but i'll have to make it work.
if everything goes right, 1350 range. if i can get my deadlift around 500, there is a possiblity of 1400. right now i would say there is not much of a possibility of that happening.
Sounds solid. When I was younger I felt I moved around the best when I weighed in the 180's, but as I got stronger I came to find that I could handle the extra bodyweight and became quicker. So I suppose as you naturally get stronger and bigger you may become accustomed to it as I did. It took me a very very long time to break the 190 barrier and several more years to break 200. But the 198 class is a very competitive one and I think a good one to be in.
Well perhaps we can have a virutal competition on our totals. I will be competing in late Oct/early Nov and we should be pretty close on the total. You'll kill me in the bench but the squat and deadlift might even it out. You up for the challenge? Who knows, maybe we can even compete at an actual meet against each other. The toughest part for me will be losing some pounds to get back into the 198, if I don't we'll have to go the wilks formula.
