development of the strength table

Postby JP » Thu Oct 02, 2008 3:32 pm

trash talk on MSN with some mofos, and did this calculation, so may as well post it here :D

this is from an old post i made late 2007:

he vegan strength table which measures peoples strength via maximum lifts on squat, bench and deadlift has progressed really well over the years. I counted the total of the top 10 lifters on each year and its like this:

2004: 4652.5kg

2005: 5319kg

2006: 5493.2kg

2007: 5893.8kg (and the year is not over yet!)


and the total is now:

6021.5

nice progress over the years :D

I wonder if this gets slower over the years or just keeps on improving couple hundred kgs per year?

I guess this is what strength athletes do while injured.

Next you'll be reading over old training logs with a tear in your eye.

Sometimes you remind me of one dr. Cox.

if someone has a moment to count that up, that would be interesting too :D

what the fuck happened in 2006-7, only a 13.5kg gain?!?

Maybe the global price of wheat had something to do with it?

or was some heavier guy dropped from top 10 in favour of some lean beast?

dont know man, thats a mystery...

i put 42.5 kg to my total - would be VERY happy with something like that next year :lol:

and it cant be explained by sensless leaving the table either, because that was a year after...

maybe a mistake in the calculations of the yearly totals? :lol:
