1/2/3/4 touted so highly around here as an easy goal?
for literally anyone thats not a fat fuck those are impressive as fuck lifts that require at least a year of training.
Is it just e stats by people that don't even lift?
Do they not realize how huge people that have these stats are?
Pic related is for 175 lb male
note proficient implies 3 + years of constant strength training with good diet
It's not that it's easy to get to, but that as long as you're consistent with your programming anyone can attain it (give or take).
There are people that are like "hurr durr i did 1/2/3/4 for reps on my second workout" or some shit like that. Depending on where you start it can take a while. Hungry skelly could take well over a year or two versus someone who played a lot of football in highschool or something similar it could only take a few months since they were really close anyway.
Just go the gym, have fun, and work on improving each time and you will hit 1/2/3/4. Don't worry about estats.
pretty much this, or they're not accounting for like 5 years of calisthenics or team sports prior to lifting, or maybe they worked stocking shelfs in a warehouse & lifted 50lb boxes for 8hrs a day for 10yrs, and had a solid muscle base before lifting. I knew a guy that was a truck driver for a beer company who was pretty jacked, and all he did was load kegs onto a dolley
I can't tell if this is a troll or not, but you are a fucking retard.
Have you never done anything consistently in your life? This is not some unachievable goal after a fucking year of consistent hard work. This is insanely easy. The numbers are all low. You can add 5 pounds every single workout if you keep eating.
People on this board have terrible workouts, call good programs memes, "cut" the second they see the tiniest amount of body fat and generally look like tiny twinks who get happy at 250 squats. You probably fall into this category. It's insanely easy to hit those numbers. They are not remotely impressive. You can most likely do them in less than a year, but any able bodied man can fucking do them in an entire year of lifting.
Have fun never accomplishing anything because you look at good work ethic and say "bullshit there is some catch I'm not shit because I'm a retard it's because of external factors."
let's be honest, in the dozens or hundreds of times we've been to the gym, we've probably glanced at many hundreds or even a thousand or two people performing a bench press
how many of them were benching 2pl8 or more?
as a rough guess I'd say I've seen 1000 people using a bench, and somewhere from 10-20 of them were doing 2pl8 or more
>tfw played 3 sports all throughout highschool
>tfw exceeded 1/2/3/4 within 9 months after i started lifting
dont get mad at me because i wasnt a NEET senpai
I never heard of it before I came to /fit/.
Seems a good goal for the new lifters.
But kinda a joke. We had a weight lifting/running/pylo class in high school.
All 1rpm were tracked on the wall for everyone to see by the instructor . The majority did alot more than 1/2/3/4.
At 15 yrs old 218lbs I was at 185 OHP, 325 BENCH, 350 SQUAT, 495 DL.
>just learned what 1/2/3/4 means
>Realize I workout with weight more then all of those.
>OMG YOU ARE SO FAT WHO CARES IF YOU GAINED MUSCLE IT'S NOT LIKE YOU CAN JUST CUT AFTER HITTING THOSE NUMBERS
Never going to make it, you are mentally and physically weak.
It's just that to people who lift, it's not a lot of weight? And your on a fitness forum, probably Reddit fitness as well where people do lift and have been lifting for the 1 year or so it takes to get those numbers.
Wtf, I'm 5'10 210 ish, finally got 300 400 500, been lifting I guess for several years, but only recently without fuckarounditis adding 15 pounds to your max every 2 months adds up pretty quick
t b h anon said without fucking around this time, thats what he reached
I started gym properly couple months ago finally 'without fucking around' and I started with bench above 100 pounds.
Reaching 2pl8 already, whew that was ez
For a natural is what was said to what I was replying to.
who starts at 100 pounds? That is extremely week, and you could easily add 5 lbs a week just from eating more.
That is a bad starting point for this and you know it.
Assuming they hit the 1/2/3/4 in 1 year, 1.5 or so
And 15 lbs every 2 months. They can get another 90 lbs in a year or if 5 lbs a month in a year and a half.
So one year to 1.5 to get to 1/2/3/4, and another 1 year to 1.5 to add another plate a side.
Obviously lighter people may not be able to do this, ohp is extremely hard as well. but i is not as difficult as your making it seem. Not for squat and deadlift. Even bench, fuck add another year if you want
And I was replying to natural lifters. 300 400 500 is not some unattainable number. Just chipping away at it works
And in 3-4 years your at 300 400 500.
almost anyone who hasn't trained before starts at less than 100 lbs, i was being generous
Obviously its not an unattainable number, but it takes more time than people act like it does.
It took me three months to reach proficient but...i don't have a life
Just because YOU can't, it must be true. God forbid someone not play video games all day, but instead chop wood, throw hay all day and start lifting at 12 yrs old.
You have already become failure.
Keep believing that brah.
Your not gonna make it brah.
The people who can't hit those numbers don't try, don't have people around them pushing them and quit. Time to retire this hobby Chad and move on to something else you really want to succeed at.
Your attitude is awful bro, you should be taking that as a compliment if you're telling the truth(which you aren't). All my uncles grew up on a farm tossing 50lb hay bales every summer and their lifts were only that high senior year of hs/early college.
But honestly who cares if you make it, you sound like a total ass tbqh.
