    To the OP, less than I want, more than I need.

    I've NEVER lifted 2x BW in any exercise. I think my closest was a 5 plate deadlift (495lbs) at 285lbs BW. It's those homunculus men that get all the good percentage lifts.
    I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.

    Deadlift 5x315lbs.
    Been lifting this weight consistently last 3 years while dropping body weight from 175 lbs to currently 158 lbs. I only do this lift 2-3x a year to gauge overall strength. Train 90% kettlebells, clubbells, and bodyweight. 52 years old, 5'-8" 158 lbs.

    There is NOTHING easy about lifting 1-2x bodyweight.

    What I meant was that you can get to a 1-2x bw 1rm starting out after only a few months' training

    Yeah, me too. I think if I were a man, I would not be able to leave the gym. Such an awesome progress the guys make, while I am micro loading ankle weights on the bar. I am ~ 122 lbs, female, middle-aged, and can barely do this, after 3 years dedicated, no misses training (1 RM):

    SQT: 155 lbs
    BP: 90 lbs
    OHP: 68 lbs
    DL: 205 lbs

    When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

    Last week was supposed to be 1rm max week but life got heavily in the way. Officially I have:

    Squat: 245x1
    Bench: 205x4
    OHP: 135x1
    DL: 335x3

    Need to re-test soon and will do better.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/
