What are your workout stats from when you 1st started working out and till now? that includes:
1. bench press
2. squats
3. bicep curls
4. push ups
5. shoulder press
6. dead lift

I love to workout whenever i have the chance, and im gonna start to go to Anytime fitness to pump iron to the max and get stronger to build my confidence and self esteem. i was wondering what were your workout stats when you started working out. i have never in my whole life ever been to a gym, had access to a gym, or used exercise equipment besides 2 dumbbells that i saved up for with my own money (except only once in my life i got to go to a fitness room for 30 hour but i only got touch the weights for 5 minutes :( ). i want to know when i start my workout regime tomorrow how good my stats will be in comparisons to yours when you 1st started and how much i should improve. dont feel embarrassed if your stats arent that great, not everyone can be like hulk hogan, thats part of working out.

Hi Salad,

I'm 22 years old and female. These are my stats from when I started working out three years ago:

1. bench press- 45 lbs
2. squats- 40 lbs
3. bicep curls- 10 lb dumbbells
4. push ups- 3
5. shoulder press- 10 lb dumbbells
6. dead lift- 50 lbs

And for this year as of this month:

1. bench press- 135 lbs
2. squats- 200 lbs
3. bicep curls- 40 lb dumbbells
4. push ups- 35 without stopping, 115 in a day
5. shoulder press- 45 lb dumbbells
6. dead lift- 275 lbs

I don't know how helpful this would be since it took me a long time to get these weights higher. Good luck in the gym and have fun!

I was an athlete so it was a good bit.
I don't really lift heavy weight anymore, except for legs sometimes, when I do lift I go for moderate weight and lift until the muscle is exhausted.
I also do what I call explosive exercises like pumping your legs as quickly as possible as you go up a steep hill or incline.
All that I am saying is there is more than one way to get the results you want. Focus on good form and don't worry about
lifting really heavy early. :)
