    Back in the days of my youth, I had this vision of the "5-300" club. In the same day, run a 5:00 mile and max bench 300. My personal best mile was 5:03 and my max bench is 270...not at the same time.

    The challenge was in the training.Inevitablly training for one sacrified the other. Not sure it is possible....outside some of these NFL freaks.

    Press 150 (not likely), bench 200, power clean 200, squat 350, deadlift 400

    Currently (all 3 sets of 5, except power cleans 5 sets of 3):
    Press 95, bench 145, power clean 145, squat 270, deadlift 295 (1 set of 5)

    Also 15 strict pull-ups (currently ~5-6)

    Add me, I want to do over 60 push-ups in one go. I know I can get there if I just train consistently. I KNOW I can be at least 20% cooler!

    Ok I think I've added everyone who wants to be.

    @ Chaloey - those are some big numbers

    @ Knifegill - where you at now? I've manged 50, but then decieded I wasn't going lowing enough so I'm down to about 30 with better form now.

    They're goals for the year, gotta aim high. Besides, the farthest I am from any is about 100lb. That's only 10lb a month

    You make a good point, I look at my goals and I am far away, but there is still over 11 months left to work on them

    It's the squat and deadlift figures that look massive to me, I want to be able to OH press my bodyweight, in a handstand preferably, but working up to it with a sandbag as well as body weight legs up on kitchen work-top. I can see myself being able to bench 200lbs, but deadlifting 400, that seems huge. I've only just started to deadlift though, so I'm on low weight for 2 reasons 1) to practice form, and most importantly 2) I only have one 25kg sand bag

    Thankfully, I was taught good push-up form as a child, and have always gone to the floor! I usually max out between 35 and 40, depending on rest, etc. Speed is a huge deal-breaker, since I'm a fan of slow reps and can thoroughly enjoy 10 mind-bendingly slow pushups. But if I'm going for numbers, quick reps are clearly the only option.

    The first time I put 220lbs on the bar and did a set of five, the rest of my workout was blown because it was so heavy that I just got instantly tired. If you just take it slow and keep at it, you'll get there. The other day I did a set of 286lbs times 6, followed by a single at 309lbs.

    So keep at it, and you'll get there
