T Nation

Cannot Find Strength Standards Article


#1

I can not recall the specific author i thought it was Matt Kroc but did not see it under his articles wrote for T-Nation. The article was about strength standards and included dips, pull ups, bench, squat, deadlift, mp, etc. Most were in high rep range like 405x20 for squats. Sorry for the underwhelming description but that is what i recall of it.

Not sure if this is the one, it only shows a 1RM for squat.

Some great base standards posted by Jim today in his forum section…

" [Set performance goals in conditioning and strength. Use easy tests and a wide variety. So here are some VERY SIMPLE TESTS ANYONE CAN DO. Goals are up to you. I have written about this countless times.

Box jump - 40"
1 mile run - 6:00
Press - bodyweight x 5 reps
Squat - 500x1 or 15-20 rep goal
300 yard shuttle - 55 seconds

Chins - 20 reps] "
