I have very long limbs and busted a disk back in 2008.

Max press I got to was 100kg. CGBP was at 80kg and Dips were BW + 35kg. Don't know why my long arms like Dips

IDK how they came up w/ the numbers but it seems reasonable. the ratio for squat/bench is 1.33ish.


I don't know who came up with this chart. But it wasn't crossfit. This chart was our guideline when I lifted OLY in high school.

The chart is from the first edition of Rippetoe's "Practical Programming".

I have longer arms shorter legs. I can squat 1.5x weight, but can only bench press 10 pounds over my weight.

Do these charts mean 1RM?

Damn... I am between advanced and elite for the bench press (240lb press for 3 reps @ 135lbs bodyweight) but just novice for squat (although I haven't ever tested my 1RM for the squat).

That's outstanding strength for your size. That probably translates to a 260-265 max @ 135lbs.

Standards are, as previously stated 1.5xBW Bench, 2xBW Squat, 2.5xBW Deadlift. However, most guys can't even bench their own body weight. Start there. Don't worry as much about bench to squat ratios. Worry more about the ratios of your lifts to your body weight, your body fat percentage, and your general appearance. Think about it- ratio of lift to body weight is the reason why the Olympics have weight classes for lifting- it is the single best determination of relative strength.

Yeah, I've always been really strong upper-body wise. My legs are weak - need to focus on them this year.

Dang I'm advanced for bench press, intermediate for squats, and intermediate for deadlift. Definitely have to work the legs harder.
