I can concede that the Dumbbell Press numbers might be inflated since I don’t touch the Dumbbells to my chest. But I do bring my elbows below my torso. The Rows are legit. I’ve also done 120s without straps for 33 reps. I don’t think I could squat 240 for 33 reps.
I’m also pretty confident I could do 215 on the flat bench for reps.
The Military Press is defiantly legit. I’ve got absolutely no knee bend and I start the bar from the racked position while it’s still on my body. I wore a belt if it matters.
I suppose it’s possible that the 100X10 drained me. I did that on Monday then maxed on bench today (Thursday). That recovery might have been compromised further because
I’ve been throwing the shot put every day (I’ve only been doing this for about a month)
On Rack Lockouts about 4 or 5 inches away from my chest I have done 275 from a dead stop.
It’s also not unusual for me on any lift to do a set of 10 with 90% of my max. I think this is attributed to my history of endurance sports. I don’t think it’s from a lack of intensity because I’m pretty familiar with doing sets and max attempts that cause my eyes and face to go red.
So, would my numbers make more sense and seem more balanced if you ignored my max bench?
Sorry I left out the bit about the shot put. That’s probably an important factor, but I feel like I could have done the 100s again today if I wanted.
I also bench in a power rack without a spotter. It’s not as unsafe as it sounds. I just set the pins at a level so that if I get stuck, I can just relax my back and limbo my way out. Taking the bar out by myself probably does tax me some, but I don’t think it’s enough to explain the discrepancy between my Bench and everything else.
