I'm a pretty broad, muscular guy. How much in proportion to my body weight should I be able to lift in: Squats, Bench, and Power Clean for 8 reps? (Right now I am 170 pounds, and I squat 275, bench 155, and power clean 130, by the way)
God damn brewery!!!

well for a 15 year old, i'd say those are pretty reasonable numbers that you put down. i do a little less, but i don't lift very often, so that looks like a pretty good amount you can do now. i'm no expert though...

Those are very good numbers. You can plug them into this calculator to estimate your 1 rep max and training poundages.

Just so you keep striving for more....I squat 400 for 5 reps, below parallel, no belt, no knee wraps, weighing 190.

Have you noticed any benefits from lifting this weight in your game?
or are they more beneficial to how good your muscles look?
