It's About Getting Strong

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Strength training is about one thing. Getting strong. I was inspired by 4A-HEALTHY-BMI's blog post Tuesday.

What is truly inspiring to me is seeing someone lift and progress.

She used the site to measure progress. The site normalizes and ranks your lifts based on sex and body weight. 4A ranks in the intermediate category, which is no small task. The exception is the bench. Here is her ranking from Note, these are true 1 rep maxes, so this girl is really strong, not just theoretically strong.

A little hard to read, but the blue bars represent her ranking. The squat is getting awfully close to "advanced". Maybe one day I can convince her to change her name to 4A-BIG-SQUAT.

Plug in your own numbers and share with us.

    Interesting website and stats thanks!

    I was pretty proud of my 5 reps of 235 lb squats and 3 reps of 300 lb deadlifts, but it barely shows me ekeing into the intermediate level.

    But then again, it didn't ask my age either! (53)

    4A-BIG-SQUAT is why I jump out of my kayak and run into the woods, just after going down a really tough rapid. LOL
