Weigh 260, right now I can do 5-7 reps on the bench press, max was 300lbs 2 reps when I was in shape. Wouldn't attempt now I'd probably have a stroke I'm so out of shape lol.

@wavemotioncannon: No, you don't say that...try my line "well I came to realise that being able to lift so much weight was pretty pointless so I changed my training regime to fitness and endurance...instead of lifting a very heavy weight once I lift a slightly less heavy one a lot of times".

Trust me it makes you feel a bit better LOL

@teddy_the_god_killer: I incorporate weights into my workout. But I love body weight routines. I'm an ectomorpth so to me speed and strength are important. Some dudes would smirk at me in the gym. I could probably run circles around them in a fight due to me being faster and nearly as strong. Running is actually the best...buut dammit I hate running

@guardiandevil83: Running is a hideous curse, but a necessary one. I substituted with some skipping sessions (both heavy and speed). Three times as effective as jogging (notice the word 'jogging' not running). LOL

I wonder how many people tried to life their own weight to find out and in the process injured themselves.

Nice going, OP.

HAHA! This actually made me laugh. It also reminded me of when I was in training and as the smallest guy in the class they made me try and carry the biggest guy. Was my first time trying such a thing. He was about 6'5" and probably about 220 ungeared. Once he strapped up I barely got him on my shoulders, one step and I got f**king pancaked on the ground. Everyone was laughing their asses off, I might have been but I could damn breathe.

Ahaha, oh man.. that sucks. I've had similar situations in boxing training - we have to do a piggyback sprint exercise. I'm pretty tall for my age, but not as buff as my clothes let on, I was actually skinny at the time. So before I had developed any muscle like the other guys, I was getting 20 year olds thrown on my 14 year old back and I'd just lag behind everyone.

No harm done though, it's all character building. :p

Character building, hazing the new little guy, perspective I guess haha. But nah I wasn't butt hurt about it, between being the shortest guy and my jersey accent I knew I was going to stand out and get sh*t. Yeah, character building.

I'm always kidding when I say something is character building. It is unfair, I agree.

If you mean lift as in just lifting something or someone then yes. Lifted a guy who weigh a bit over three hundred pound and I definitely don't weigh that much lol. As for bench pressing I haven't done it in a while focusing more on endurance and cardio lately, but the last time I benched at peek I was benching 210lb. Keep in mine that was my max I could not do that consistently at all. I weighed like 180 at that point so at that point in time yes. I weigh under 210 right now but like I said I haven't done bench presses in a while. I curl 40lbs with each arm, does that count for something?

I guess it really could be considered hazing, but for us it's pretty standard in training school. We see and deal with a lot worse in combat than getting made fun of. Doesn't make it right, but it does toughen you mentally and emotionally for worse things.

Still f**kin sucks though haha.
