Eh? Am I immortal then, or just weird? I love squats - deadlifts I am more nervey about! Mind you, I haven't been doing them long.

Deadlift and front squat: I don't do such exercises.
Overhead press: never tried this, but I will and report too! You sit upwards there, am I correct?
Bench press: managed to lift 110 kg (with a spotter watching over, of course). that's not 130 kg (I never will, because I don't like bench press - am doing it once/2 months).
What are chins?
My own goals are: leg extension 130kg (1.5 BM) with one leg (90 kg presently, full range of motion), rowing 105 kg (1.2 BM, now 85 kg), biceps curl machine 60 kg one arm (now 35 kg).
My problem is I have too strong calves for any machine in our gym (I was able to do 15 reps with stupid maximum 60 kg on sitting calves machine years ago, and I was trying standing way, but I almost broke my back and shoulders)... any suggestions ? Blaz

Of course I do standard free weight bench press. I like doing with free weights, but you can also cheat a lot there (so comparison can be questionable); I saw people doing weird bench presses or anything else. Myself, I do presses correctly.
Chins: no, I can only make 5 chins using my own weight! That's bad, isn't it?

To be able to close a #2 gripper
A couple of years training and I should be able to do both.
Those goals should be achivable by most, i'm sure you would too. But it would require strength focused training though. It's not going to be easy, but i don't think it's supposed to be
