Bench, deadlift, squat 1000 challenge! « : April 13, 2018, 04:17:35 PM »
Honest Question - Is your Bench,deadlift,squat over 1000 LBs when adding the 3 up?

And if so are you just under, just over, far under or far over?

Years ago guys at work were doing this challenge, and at the time I was just short of 1000, now I'm breaking it easily.

How about you guys?

Hmm.... I was right around 970 something prior to my surgery, my goal was to break this before I got cut open, but alas I ran out of time.  Its going to take me a while once I start physical Therapy and heal up, but this is my goal!  Its a good goal, so nice job!

I don't think you can claim your numbers accurately without going to a meet. 1: you need to hit proper depth on squat, pause on bench, etc. 2. Every bar in the gym is different. Unless you're using a competition bar like an Ohio power bar with no flex and a universal circumference, you can't really compare numbers with each other.

Was going on the honor system and giving every1 here the benefit of the doubt that they lift with proper form wasnt saying it has to be done at a meet lol.

This has piqued my competitiveness after swearing off 1RM tests. If I were to test it I think I'd be over pretty easily, esp. If you can use wraps for the DL, but I'm more interested in getting to a point where I can rep over 1k in total between the 3 without sacrificing form. Not sure I could do that rn.

Im asking this question with the assumption its good full form...took me a long time to get my numbers where they are, and it is with good form.

Just thought its a good informal and realistic goal to achieve....1000 pounds over 3 lifts, good controlled form

I was at 1000+ last Summer, but work and injuries got in the way.

If you can't explain it using simple words, you don't understand it well enough.

I think the proper question would be how you weight, not how much. Details really matter if you know what I mean. So keep it simple and enjoy your state.

The new unofficial Part II of the competition will be to be the lightest person to complete it.
