When do you consider someone to be In Shape, not Ripped or Jacked, but in shape...
Respectable bf % 10-12
Being able to run a mile in 7 minutes
Benching 120% of your body weight (10x)
Those are my current goals to get "in shape"
Bench body weight
run 7min mile, 24min 3miles
for men: 15% or less body fat
be able to run 1.5 miles w/o stopping
lift their bodyweight a few times
edit: mine is just for an overall "healthy" person.
At one point I could run 15:45 for 3miles, but could bench only 100lbs +-
Well rounded seems to be the trend around here for that ideal
anyone who can stand moderate-heavy sports conditioning. across the board.
well back when i was in my prime....
I love this forum.
I think a lot of the stronger guys in here wouldn't be really what I consider to be "in shape". Hell, I'm fairly low bf% (12% is my guess), strong on my lifts, but can hardly put down a mile without feeling like I'm going to die. I would say a good blend of endurance mixed with strength is my definition of "in shape".
Shape and fit are different things.
3miles in 15:45 is damn good.
3 miles in 20min killed me. And that's on a treadmill.
I don't think I've run on a track in 15years.
i find it much harder to run fast times on a treadmill than in a natural environment personally.
for me...in shape means below 7% bf, and feeling strong/really fast on my feet.
i weigh about 175, and am what i consider (for me personally) in shape, since my 3 "big" lifts are where i want them to be, and i still feel very explosive and fast...yet i have the endurance to be suitable for my needs as well.
Pull ups: 20
Mile: 8min or less
Dick: 6" or longer
Run 2 miles without jogging.
Bench close to your body weight. Squat close to 1.5x bw.
Reasonable body fat %.
Those are some retarded numbers.
Who the fuck benches 225x10 but can't squat 300?
And 20 pullups? Jeebus.
I go ass to grass on squats though. I could prob do about 365lbs if I did them half ass like a lot of people do.
I think that's a good generalization for how all men should be
Except for the deadlift (415 for 3reps), that's almost exactly my numbers.
275 was actually my best ATG single though going only to parallel I can do 365lbs.
talk is cheap
learn to work legs like a man bench boy
Nice pullup numbers.
I don't max out on ATG, so I don't know what my max is, but I rep 225 for 5 on my light days.
My max to parallel thus far is 375, but I think I can do more.
How does your ATG olympic style squats compare to your pl squat?
I've always wondered what the difference should be.
I cant even really compare I dont wear gear when I do ATG, when I do wider pl squats I do
You're not in shape unless you look like Timberwolf. There's a lot of fatties running around.
Do you regularly do both types?
The entire world is fat!
