Anybody ever do body weight lifts? As in put your body weight on the bar and see how many times you can bench it.

In high school one of the football coaches who was the weightlifting class teacher always had us do it. Most I ever got was 24.

I'm going to start doing this. Seems a safer way to measure dicks.

Don't even know how to post my own video...

Plus not that desperate for attention.

Plus maxing is retarded.

No. 205 is my max when I was 18. I have never attempted another max since then. That was over 20 years ago.

Damn bro, you must be massive. I believe you due to how much you post about lifting, but there has got to be a lot of bull shite in this thread. The entire OT would be more swole than anyone I've ever seen in my gym if this is all true

Banana

If bench press isn't part of your routine, what do you do? All dumbells? I feel your pain about shoulders. Just about every chest excercise I do hurts them.

then your form is probably wrong and you are relying on your delts and not your chest as much.

Also, do you thoroughly warm-up your rotator cuffs before lifting? It helps a lot.

Age is the biggest factor for me. I'm 34 and don't want shoulder issues.

Plus, my jugs are sufficiently "sxexy" right now without benching.












traps... Not even once.
