Just a random thought I had in the gym last night.

Calculate your ratio by adding together your max benchpress, deadlift and squat, and divide this total by your body weight (doesn't matter if you use lbs or kgs)

(bench + deadlift + squat) / body weight

I figure those 3 give a general overview of strength

poll to follow...

Slightly off topic but im sure i read somewhere that if you can bench one and half times your bodyweight or more then your doing well for strength versus body weight??.......so if i weigh between 93-96kg and my max bench is 160kg then i figure im doing ok? :confused1:

maybe a mod could fix the poll options

*nervous OCD twitch at having mistakes in there

That's still pretty strong Lin, especially if you're BP is poor :)

You have a decent bench, but IMO 1.5 times BW is not that impressive for most guys, for a 100kg guy that is only 150kg.

A raw, strict, double bodyweight bench is a rare thing.
