Quote of the Week

“Out of every hundred men, ten shouldn’t be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.”

    The 1,000 lb Club

    Good article but growing up in the 80’s I weighed
    around 150 lbs in high school and was part of the
    1,000 lb club.

    I think men should shoot for 100 lbs over each lift.
    As a 9 th grader I was dead lifting 400 lbs and a 12 th
    grader bench pressing 330 lbs all at around 150 lbs.

    The only exercises you did was supplemental exercises
    like heavy weighted dips with 80 to 125 extra weight hanging from the waist, heavy weighted pullups, bent
    rows etc.

    No reps higher then 8 reps, but most reps were
    5 reps or lower down to singles.

    Training has seemed to really taken a back seat to all
    the new ways of training.

    In the 80s you had 3 choices, body building,
    power lifting or weight lifting so you picked one
    and went hard.

    No Cross fit, no kettle bell movements, no tire
    flipping (unless it was at work) no special
    diets, just heavy training. Today to many
    distractions! We trained like it was our job!

    Just in high school alone many kids were over
    300 lb bench pressers, one 10 th grader was
    squatting 500 lbs to a bench.

    If you have a 300 lb bench you should squat
    400 lbs and dead lift 500 lbs.

    Just an opinion from a 49 yr old who has been
    training for 35 years.

    • Man that’s strong. Interesting. I think many people get too caught up in different things and simply don’t bust their ass putting in the work. Those sound like good standards. Been a fan of low reps especially for athletes. Unfortunately most programs I’ve seen use 12 reps or higher for athletes.
