    hope it's OK for me to ask this, but both guys and girls, please would you be able to put up a photo of yourself (preferably not all covered up in jeans and T shirt) and then tell me how much weight (8 good form, not too exhausting reps) you can squat, what you can deadlift (btw Olympic barbell weighs 22.5kg, does it?!) and how much you can do for all or any of the following upper body exercises: dumbbell shoulder press, dumbbell row, barbell row, lat pull down?


    would really appreciate it! thanks in advance

    It's okay to ask, but probably won't get many answers- and even if you do it will mostly be highly exaggerated. Have you Googled this? I'm sure there must be some kind of specialist website that puts this information together.

    I'm too embarrassed. I have just started and have almost zero muscle mass (well, y'know) and am lifting embarrassingly light weights.

    thought people may not be inclined to do so. but I'd v interested in how different people of different strength look.

    Kinda agree

    I aim for 5 reps, then when I start being able to push out 7 reps on a weight, I move it up. Not gonna build any mass doing 8 reps of a comfortable weight.

    You definitely would build mass doing 8 reps and is proven the best range....all about strength though.

    Maybe

    My point really was that doing a comfortable weight without challenging yourself isn't going to get you anywhere. Yeah you'll make gains at first, but you need to exert your muscles.

    Same with any exercise really

    I'm 5'7, weigh about 65kg.

    Bench: 75kg
    OHP: 40kg
    Squat: 80kg
    Deadlift:80kg
    (5 reps)

    Squat and deadlift (especially) are low as I started doing them a fair bit later than the rest. Bit reluctant to post a picture too haha

    Well since I already have my pics up I guess it doesn't matter.
    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...&page=6&page=6

    Third of the way down the page.

    At around 80kg 6'0.5

    Squat 85kg 5RM
    Bench 70kg 5 RM
    Deadlift 135kg 5 RM/160kg 1RM
    Over head press 50kg 5 RM
    Bent over barbell row 67.5kg 5 RM

    Olympic barbell is 20kg BTW, though many gyms have female olympic barbells (which are thinner since girls have smaller hands) which typically weigh 15kg.

    my gym has no female olympic barbells, I'm pretty sure it s just a normal one, guys load like tonnes on them so must be sturdy.
