The study focused on 5 years of data on 3 main powerlifting categories – the squat (a strength exercise in which the trainee lowers their hips from a standing position and then stands back up); the bench press (an upper-body weight training exercise in which the trainee presses a weight upwards while lying on a weight training bench); and a deadlift (in which a weight is lifted off the ground to the level of the hips, before being placed back on the ground).

Texas' results:

  • Average squat: 687 lbs
  • Average bench press: 438 lbs
  • Average deadlift: 742 lbs.
Virginia came in second, followed by New York, California and North Carolina.

North Dakota came in last.

Texas = High School Football = Living in the weight room. Surely SOME of that sticks around for a few years after we either hit the oil fields or drop out of college and hit the meth, hard....

I left that to join the military. I knew I was out-worked in the weight room by a few dudes, one of them went on to play in the NFL. I never stood a chance at regional powerlifting meets... lol
