1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    A lot of guys I know mostly workout just to look good, but I like to workout for strength too. Just started changing my lifts for this. Anyways, just curious where everyone was at and what is achievable amongst a busy demographic. I'll start:

    height: 5'9
    weight: 165
    bf %: 13%

    max bench(1 rep): 225
    leg press: 300 lbs x 10 times
    deadlift: don't know
    row: 130 lbs x 10

    height: 6'0 lol j/k
    weight: 155
    bf %: 7%

    max bench: 250
    leg press: 350 x 10 times
    deadlift: don't know
    row: 140lbs x 10

    Land of the Lotus Eaters
    height: 5'7
    weight: somewhere between 165 & 170
    bf %: no idea

    max bench (1 rep): 260
    squat: 260 x 10
    deadlift: 270 x 10

    I do squat more than leg presses. Don't row either. I usually mix it up my cardio between Spartacus workout and sprints on the treadmill.
    The only goal I really have is get down to single digits for body fat.

    If you're really trying for strength, don't waste your time with leg presses. You need to do squats which is a much better exercise unless you have back and knee problems.
