First time I touched a barbell was in November 2011, first time in an actual gym was late April 2012.

Since then ripped up my shoulder joint (went back from a 120kg bench press to 40kg, took a year to fully recover) and had an ankle injury which affected my very old knee injury, so I can't actually squat.

Max back squat was 195kg and max deadlift was 208kg last year.

Started on October 21 2014 however I have been extremely injury prone(just had my second exertional headache a couple days ago) which cut maybe 5-6 months of actual training off that time including a large 4 month period from recovering from tendinitis in my knees which I'm pretty sure still haven't fully recovered from.

How seriously does /fit/ take these estimates?

I can do hanging weighted leg raises (35 lbs) for 10 reps and it says that my abdominal muscles are untrained. I can box jump over 4ft for 15+ reps in under 30 seconds and it says that my legs are untrained.

This is just for laughs right?

Your explosive power in your legs is good, sure, but your strength is not. These two kinda go hand in hand, but unless you squat 200kg your legs are pretty weak comparatively to elite lifters.

Also hanging leg raises are more hip extensiors than abs imo

Looks like I'll have to get my squat weights up. I've been training and using my maximum vertical leap as a benchmark for my leg strength, but I can see that I may indeed be a novice as the chart would indicate.

My bullshit alarm is going off. You claim to perform 1 jump every <2 seconds for 15 consecutive reps onto a 4 foot box. Even ignoring the obviously exaggerated rate of those jumps, 15 reps of a 25 inch vertical jump, which a 48 inch box jump roughly equates to, that would put your max standing vert at nearly 40 inches.

Unless you're some kind of competitive high school or college athlete, you're spewing complete and utter bullshit. And a college athlete would be able to squat more than 200 pounds.
