The thread about the guy who took his girlfriend into the gym for the first time inspired this thread.
Before you even touched a weight, how strong were you?
This is obviously gonna be difficult to prove because, even if you give video evidence to back up your feats, how do we know it was when you were ‘untrained’?
Just be honest.
I’ll start: as a completely untrained 14-16 year old kid, I could do a one arm press up the first time I tried it and 30 dead hang overhand pullups the first time I tried the exercise. I was a pretty lean kid though, so I’m not sure if it counts, as bodyweight movements are a pretty poor indication of strength, or even relative strength.
I would struggle even do this now (after some years of training), even though I’ve got stronger at weighted chin ups, probably due to increased body mass.
Over to you, how strong were you untrained - and this obviously isn’t limited to bodyweight exercise - eg. did any of you beasts squat a2g 500lbs the first time you trained legs?
