okay, so i'm nearing the end of stage 1. i've really enjoyed it and am looking forward to stage 2. i've been sharing my successes with some guys i'm friends with who i know lift weights. most of them have been very impressed with me, even though they lift WAY more than i do. they are also bigger and have been lifting for longer than me.
anyway, one guy was a bit critical of how much i was lifting. just wondering how much people can lift in terms of % of body weight. i'm currently squatting and deadlifting about 50% of my body weight. this is after only about 6 weeks of lifting free weights (previously only did machines).
