    I was just wondering, how long did it take (for those of you who have achieved it) to join the 1000lb club from the start of your weight training career?

    If you don't know,the 1000 lb club is this: Bench, squat and deadlift a total of 1000lb (roughly 455 kg).


    I am currently at 902 lb/410kg (925lb if I were to listen to 1-rep max calculators):
    100kg bench
    130kg squat
    180kg deadlift

    My goal is to get the total of these up to 455kg/1000lb by the summer.

    Is there an amount that most people tend to do for each lift when they get to around 1000lbs - 455kgs?

    Like 200dead, 150squat, 105 bench or what? Or is it very varied.

    It will vary a lot. I was watching some Youtube videos about guys doing their 1000lb and this one person was benching more than he was squatting.

    Usually there's an approximate ratio of each lift to your bodyweight, which changes as you progress in the world of weightlifting.
