Those are great numbers for a 17 year old. How much do you weigh?

Favorite high school question knuckleheads used to ask: "How much do you bench?" Shouldn't this be in the 3-series forum with the tween crowd?

Try a TRX - you'll get a much better workout using that thing (with proper form) than you will from any standard 3-5 set workout with weights.

For starters, work up to the 40/40 challenge.

No deadlift, I'm 54 years old.
No max squat, I'm 54 years old.
Max bench CURRENTLY is 315 (3 plates a side) A year ago, it was 345lb. (I had a goal last spring of 350 by age 53 but fell 5 lbs short)

I'm 198 lbs. and 6'1". I hate shorties with short arms that can bench more due to physics (less travel)

When I was 33, my best 10k run was a shade over 42 minutes. I didn't run often as cycling was my prime source of cardio. I could bench 245. I don't recall ever doing a deadlift in my life. I would squat sets of 15 reps with 2 plates per side (225 pounds). I weighed between 158 and 163 pounds at a bit over 5'10".

I am now 53 and rarely weight train for many years now. I have had recent improvements in my cardio fitness and have lost some weight through diet and running. I run 2 to 3 times per week for 25 to 33 minutes. Sometimes I will do a 10 and 1 (run for 10 and walk for 1 minutes). My heart rate monitor tells me that my heart rate drops 30 to 35 bpm after 1 minute of walking (after10 minutes of running). The biggest change in my diet was that I cut out deserts, sugars, white bread, dairy. I actually increased my fat intake and still eat chips at times. I know that I have a long way to go to be considered fit and healthy by anyone's standards. I currently weigh about 177 pounds. At my heaviest I was around 192. Still, my progress has encouraged me to keep going and increase my focus on eating properly.
