    ******, really? So like 70kg the very first time?! :O
    No, with all due respect that would be unwise.

    Although your message is slightly ambiguous, a standard Olympic bar that you see in most gyms weighs 20kg, I can't tell from your message whether you've put 2 x 5kg plates on each end or 2 x 2.5kg so the answer will probably be either 30kg or 25kg depending on which configuration you are referring too and assuming that you are using a 20kg Olympic bar as mentioned.

    For the number of reps you have specified which IIRC was 5 this amount of weight would not be unusual for a beginner so you have nothing to worry about, if at all you were!! You will progress 'up' the weights very quickly at the start anyway.

    You count the entire weight (including the bar). So a standard olympic bar (20kg) plus a 5 on each side is 30kg.

    As for others giving 'advice' on how strong he should be - **** off! Everyone starts somewhere, and it's not helpful.

    Erm, what does this mean?

    Today I started Starting Strength after my first session of HIIT yesterday, and I managed pathetic weights, but it's just a start, and I is baaaare confused now.

    I managed to (3 x 5 repetitions) bench a 10kg bar + 5kg weights on either side, squat 15kg and deadlift 15kg.

    :o:

    So does that mean I benched 15kg? :confused:
    Firstly, use an olympic bar, which weights 20kg. Any healthy human being without disabilities should be able to squat and bench the bar at least.

    Secondly, the beauty of SS is linear progression, so you'll soon be lifting respectable weights pretty soon.
