The rules of the table

Postby Oak » Sun Jan 02, 2005 9:00 pm

This will be a great list if enough people contribute, it doesn’t matter how much you lift! It doesn’t matter how strong you are. Get yourself on the list and try and beat the person one up. If you’re at the top, try and remain there.
If your lifts improve I’ll update it.
Please post the maximum weight that you can lift in these three lifts, and I will add it to the table.

Bench press aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaTest of upper body strength
Squat aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaTest of lower body strength
DeadliftaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaTest of whole body strength

For a description of how to do these lifts, check these links

Squat
http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Glu ... Squat.html
Bench press
http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Pec ... Press.html
Dead lift
http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Glu ... dlift.html

If you are interested in finding out your Wilk's co-efficient use the link below
http://www.usapowerlifting.com/liftersc ... ndex.shtml

Rules
    1.Lifter must be vegan
    2.The three lifts are based on RAW powerlifting rules. Therefore make sure squat is to at least parallel level, bench press bar touches the chest in the bottom position and that glutes stay on the bench and feet on the floor during the lift.

    3.Equipment allowed
    Chalk
    Belt
    Wrist wraps

    Not allowed
    Squat suits or bench shirts
    Knee wraps
    Lifting straps
    4.Please state:
    Sex
    Weight
    Amount lifted
    5.Please state your 1 repetition max lift (1RM). If you don't know your 1RM you can either go and test it! or just state the maximum weight that you have lifted, even if you can do more than one rep.


Please take care when attempting these lifts, they will require a spotter.

Remember we are stronger than the average person. Just post the info and I’ll work everything out and add it to the table.

Oak :D

Sorry Oak, but you are the person one up. Thanks to the articles JP posted in http://www.veganfitness.net/viewtopic.php?t=1780, I just added 50 pounds to my deadlift. I pulled 325 pounds (147.4kg) today! Tried to go 355, but couldn't get if off the floor :)


Thanks again JP, without that article I would probably still be trying to squat at the bottom of the deadlift.

Going to try to up my deadlift on Wednesday. I haven't tried to get a PR on anything recently so hopefully that will go well.

just got back from christmas duties with the families, 5days without any weights. very frustrating-kind of feel like you are wasting away!
anyways-i got home and decided my back ought to be exercised. did a 160kg deadlift (using some of the techniques described in that link on how to do deadlifts, squats and benching properly). i tried to do 170, then 165 but couldnt get them more than 6inches off the ground.

385total-not far to 400...........

Great lifting Jonathan!

I bet you will be at 400 in no time. With 160kg deadlifts, you could put another 15kg on your squat without too much trouble.

Male.
Weight 83kg.
Lifts - Squat 125kg, Bench 85kg, Deadlift 145kg.

The only thing changed since last time is my squat, but i haven't been training consistantly enough for these 1RM's to go up, but i'm not satisfied with them at all (gives me alot to work at this year then!).

Also, the guy who's 'number 1' lifts are really good, but whats all this 'near vegan' bollocks? Maybe the board should become 'Near Vegan Fitness'. Just a thought anyway.

To answer the question regarding Sensless at the top of the chart, he's nearly vegan aside from the occasional glass of milk (I'm still working on that one to get him to drop the dairy) but other than that, there's nothing in his diet that would warrant not being vegan. I commend him for being a guy that had said at one point he could never be without meat, yet is breaking his strength records with now eating almost completely vegan. The most surprising thing to me is, he normally survives off only 1 major meal a day at under 1800 calories, so even though he's not 100% vegan as of yet I consider what he's accomplished to be a major point to state that even on a lower calorie nearly-vegan diet that a person can still boost their progress greatly.

Sensless offered to remove himself from the chart at one time but the people running it did not want to take him off. I think that there are quite a few who are sufficiently impressed with his gains to not want to ostracize him for not having stepped into veganism 100% as of yet, but rather choose to have him show to himself and others that one can be extremely strong without meat and dairy and hope that it promotes him to drop the last item from his diet and go all the way. Others may not see it the same, but that's how I perceive his being on the list!

Dear Ryan,

I've just emailed Sensless privately in regard to what i've put. I agree with what you've said & please don't think of me as a holier than thou lets-keep-vegan fitness-free of veggies kind of person. I support anyones moves towards a more compassionate existence, & i'll apologise here if i've offended anyone!

I just think someone at vegan fitness judgement has been clouded a tad, not that hard, seeing as Sensless lifts are fuckin really impresssive, I just look forward to what he can lift on a vegan diet.

Cheers!

ironman d,

No worries about the post - I know that Sensless' presence on the chart has been a bit controversial, and in the end the decisions are pretty well in the hands of Oak and what he's been posting on the table. As mentioned, I'm working on getting Sensless to drop that last bit of dairy from his diet, and I expect that once he does and once he actually starts eating regularly his lifts will take off like never before!

By the way, Oak, I'm ready for an update! Bump the squat up to 215.9kg as I broke the 475lb. barrier this evening. Woo hoo!

i can tip in as well if i may: True, the table should be vegan, and when sensless went from eating half an animal a day + all other animal products to vegan overnight, of course there was going to be some teething problems. I guess he was on the table already and jerking him back and forth from the table depending on how well he is doing on the vegan front didn't make sense.

Coming from a lifting background this was a major achievement already and even more so when Sensless finally goes vegan, hope he does.

So there was a misunderstanding to start with, which then carried on and now in the name of fairness and honesty it is marked there, i agree though, it would be better if the top lifter was vegan, so get your arse in gear Sensless :D

It's amazing though how well he has done with his lifting since dropping meat and most animal products, the gains have been absolutely mad!

I don't know Senseless but he seems like a good guy and quite worthy of this chart. He readily admits to struggling with milk occassionally and is noted as such on the chart.

If anyone wants a strictly vegan chart, what is stopping them from creating one? I don't think anyone would object. But where would that lead us? If someone has been eating meat their entire life and went vegan last week, are they good for the chart? Is it still meat-free muscle? There are guys like Oak and Keegan who are 10+ years vegan. Maybe they should be the only ones allowed on the chart?

I like Oak's chart as it stands with room for everyone who is taking vegan fitness seriously, even if they are still working on perfection. Which one of us is perfect?

i must admit that i am quite perfect, although i have been known to lack modesty on occasion!!

credit where credit is due to sensless for going from meat muncher to vegan over night. most people have this annoying veggie phase inbetween.

ooh oak-update for kathryn. she pulled an 85kg deadlift last night. couldnt budge the 90 much though. funnily enough, she wasnt that keen on the idea of weight lifting a few months ago and now she is on creatine!! she gets very pissed off with (in her words) her crappy bench press and is training for that.
kathryn also wants to come to that fitness weekend in june (though it may conflict with her final project at uni!!)
