sigh when will people stop lying about their “best” numbers? Whenever people (the people that don’t work out a day in their life type of people) ask what my max bench press has ever been, they always “one up” me by claiming they benched 405 in high school.
And I always roll my eyes because I know they’re lying.
Squats are much the same way. I’ll admit it, I used to literally NOT train my legs, and since I started to a few years back, I don’t care about the “numbers game”. It’s about looks people. I admit wholeheartedly to people that I can’t squat heavy. I’ll slowly work up to it, but in the meantime, I’m aiming for form, flat out.
If you’ve got some swept out quads and can only go to 275 (because you have amazing form, that’s what’s important!) then who cares about numbers? Who NEEDS to care about numbers? That’s my newbie philosophy anyways.
Dude, you’re supposed to have the curl jockeys work in with you when they brag about that shit. Thats why its about numbers. So you can watch them get turned into a bench press taco.
I’ve never heard this expression. Explain, please?[/quote]
when someone piles too much weight on a bench press it hits their chest and folds them up like a taco
