Hey, Highschool sophomore here! What was your lifting like (or did you not lift?) in highschool? I had just enrolled in a new Highschool (rocking 'dem AP and honors classes, without wanting to kill myself from IB), and went to the weightroom.
It was body day, so I started off with overhead presses. All of the bars/racks were being used, so I asked to work in with a guy who was squatting. I look at the bar, and it was 100 pounds total that he was squatting, and I pressed it as a warm up. Then I kept going, and at 155 (or 175) someone comes up to me and high fives me thinking I got a PR, then I kept working up to 190. (poor guy I was working in with just decided to do a different exercise)
So, that made me think: How much is the average high schooler lifting? I was in the room with sophomores-juniors (might have been one senior in there), and I was the biggest guy in there by a lot. Everyone in general (even the coaches) were impressed by my lifting.
So anyway, what was everyone's lifting like in highschool? What did you lift, and what was your programming like? I've been running some type of conjugate training during all of high school (with occasional specialization programs like coan/phillipi or smolov just for some fun).
Also, this was not a bragging post. There are quite a few people even on just this site who are stronger than me. Don't be an asshole, and say I was bragging; it was just to compare my lifting to what I saw.
