    Just curious to find someone who is at a similar stage to me. A few quick questions (rep available). How much can you:

    bench for 6 reps?
    BB curl (standing) for 6-10 reps?
    Skull crush for 10 reps?

    theres stronger people on this forum lol,

    A few months back I guess, ive only recently started recording what im doing, and I never try to find out my one rep maxes, 4/5 is the lowest I go usually

    If you wanna improve your strength check out rippetoes, or a 5x5 program

    dont reli do 1 arm dumbells but i used to do 30 reps of 17kg on my right arm. (bicep curls)

    Can do 7 reps of 45kg bicep curl (using the long type dumbell, i dont know the name lol), more of a bar.

    Glad you mentioned that. I'm 12 stone 5, but hell my bones are thin. My wrists are thin, but with big forearms it looks cool. So for me, 75kg x 3/4 at the moment is not terrible. I'm aiming to bench my own body weight (80kg) by the end of the summer for 6-8 reps.

    Bone contracts and moves?

    People with high bench numbers: You are benching properly right? My friend says he can bench 100kg, but he doesn't even bring it to his chest.

    No, bone gives you more mass to lift with.

    You don't lift with bones though.
