MT progress competition

Finally a competition where newbies can kick arse, though I hope that most of you will have a total for this one.

Take your totals of your 1RM of squat, bench and deadlift as they were on 1.1.2003, compare them to your current ones, and let us know the difference.

Rules: If you didn't have 1RM on 1.1.2003, take the first attempted 1RM during this year, no matter even if it was only a few months ago. You can still improve your progress amount for the remaining 3 weeks of the year - I intend to. The competition closes on 31.21.2003.

I'll put mine here as an example:
squat 95kg (209lbs) -> 145kg (319lbs)
bench 80kg (176lbs) -> 90kg (198lbs) lol!
deadlift 115kg (253lbs) -> 175kg (385lbs)
total: 290kg (638lbs) -> 410kg (902lbs)
progress: 120kg (264lbs)

Let's go!


Name total-1.1.2003 total-now progress

    Bench 110kg (232lbs) -> 120kg (264lbs)
    Deadlift 150kg (330lbs) -> 190kg (418lbs)

    Total 380kg (836lbs) -> 440kg (968lbs)

    hmmm.. I see your point, you have progressed as in bodyweight/strength ratio, but regressed in brute lifts.

    It get's very complicated!

    Might be another competition "how much have you improved your bodyweight/strength ratio", lol! Though then people like me would complain because i don't really give a F about my bodyweight...

    Vegan:

    Great idea! Instead of having weight classes, which would make your contest much more complicated, just measure progress as a % increase instead of total pounds. You also need to separate natural trainers from those that have used steroids at any time during the past year to make it fair. So, maybe it would be the natural trainer with the greatest % increase and the assisted trainers with the greatest % increase.

    RE: MT progress competition 2003/12/10 22:13:36 (permalink)
    great idea veganlifter!!

    here's my progress this year:
    i was sick for 2 months at the beginning of the year so i'll count my lifts as of mid march
    squat: 205lbs (93.2kg)
    bench: 165lbs (75kg)
    deadlift: 225lbs (102.3kg)
    total: 595lbs (270.5kg)

    currently
    squat: 315lbs (143.2kg)
    bench: 245lbs (111.4kg)
    deadlift: 385lbs (175kg)
    total: 945lbs (429.5kg)

    progress: 350lbs (159.1kg)

    thank God my right knee is all healed up now so i'm gonna try to improve on the squats for the next little while, will probably nail the 405lbs deadlift before year's end God willing.

    i joined MT in march of this year and thru all the great training advice here i've been able to progress on my lifts quite well, so thanks MT!!!

    allright guys, keep em coming! Good progress guys, you are setting the pace here

    Sorry Ozzy, i think we need to keep the game as it is, though you have progressed well it gets too complicated to do otherwise - unless someone comes up with a cracking formula!

    Frankie, true, we maybe should separate naturals from AS users, in MT powerlifting championships as well even more so, but this will be just a friendly competition to get everyone to think about their progression and how far we may have come - or to find reasons why we haven't gone further.

    Besides for now at least the leader is natural - or am i right si?

    ok others, let's go! Even if the progression has only been about 10lbs, let's hear about it!

    Ok this is approximate as i have no diary...[:I]

    Bench - 130kg last year, then did 160kg in about March, then stopped benching altogether!

    Dead - 245kg to 220kg - Oops!

    Squat - 185kg to 210kg - at last some progress!

    So i lost 25kg on the dead and made it on the squat! Hmmmm. Deads should be back up soon, i know i can lift more now but 220kg is honest as it is the most i have tried that i can remember.

    All in all a 66 lbs increase

    So total was 1232 lbs
    - at my peak it was 1353 lbs
    - now it is about 1298 lbs

    Oh well - i'll be back!!!

    Cheers
