In 5/3/1 Forever you outline some relative strength standards (pg 33) for male High School students. I was wondering if you have any opinions or expertise in those standards for High School women.
The numbers are (all 10 minuted tests):
Push Ups - 100
Dips - 75
Chin ups/Pull ups - 50
Hanging Leg Raises - 50
I have a co-ed strength class, and we use these numbers as our year-end goals. So far, the females have been doing fine. They have accomplished the pushups and are progressing well on the Hanging Leg Raises. The pull ups and dips are very challenging; however, this is true for both the boys and girls.
I don’t want to give them a cop out and adjust the numbers until I see what steady dedication and effort will produce. I just wondered if you or anyone else could shed some light on what I could expect from them.
