    I can squat my bodyweight over 20 reps (I think), haven't checked in a while but I was doing 20 a while back and I'm a lot stronger now.

    Can't bench wortha crap though. I can probably bust out with 4 or 5

    Hmmm...bench? I'm about 180 lbs now, so maybe 20 - 25 reps?

    Probably 15 - 20 for squats, although I haven't done 20-rep squats in a while. Makes me cringe just thinking about 20-rep squats!

    i seriously doubt i can get one rep. the frustrating thing is that i use to (20+ years ago) be able to get 285 six times. the problem is my brain says "yea, you're still 20 years old and 175 is what you warm up with for 10 or 12 reps" i lift it off the bench and my eyes almost bug out :rolleyes:. i'll get back there though... and so will you :tucool:

    Some of you guys are doing your bodyweight for an impressive number of reps! :nod:

    Happens to the best of us. I remember after taking an extended break from lifting (nearly a decade), my 1-RM was lighter than my previous warm-up weight. Muscle memory is a great thing though. You'll get to your former strength levels in a fraction of the time it took you the first time.
