    I've only been "heavy" lifting for about 3 months. Before that I did years of "boot camp" style classes using 10-15lb dumbbells. I felt like I stalled forever with those weights and just looked way too skinny so I decided it was time for a change. I know my numbers aren't considered heavy for many people, but they are heavy for me, and I'm getting more and more proud of them! I haven't actually tested my 1RM yet, but these are PRs during Crossfit.

    Squat: 105 lbs
    Deadlift: 115 lbs
    Bench: 70 lbs

    ETA: I currently weigh 125 lbs and I'm 29 years old.

    I started lifting in May of this year. I started off using 5 lb weights and now do 15's mostly, and 17.5 on the last rep. When I started bench pressing May 20th I could do 10 lbs, and thought I would die. Within 7 weeks I'm up to 70 lb max and have remained here for quite some time. We all progress at different times. I go to the gym because one they have more and two its time for me and hubby together. Funny our Friday nights are spent at the gym LOL

    I started lifting last year. I squat 200lbs, bench 135lbs, deadlift 235lbs and OHP 100lbs. These weights are my max . I test them every 4 months or so depending on the program I’m currently following.

    I started lifting at the beginning of the year and haven't found maxes in lifts for months, so I will just use most recent sets:
    Bench: 3x145 lbs
    Deadlift: 2x275 lbs
    Squat: 3x235 lbs

    If was doing well lifting for 2 years, did NROLFW then SL 5x5...then injury and chaotic life took me out of training for the last 2 years. :( but I’m back on track now finally and trying to get back to making progress. This thread is very inspiring!! thank you all who have shared your lifts and your plans! I’m starting back at the bare bar, but looking forward to making progress again soon!

    Been there. Had wrist surgery last year. It’s hard to essentially start over but just as rewarding as the first time around.

    Squat 90kg
    Bench 50kg
    Deadlift 110kg

    These are working sets, not one rep max

    My weights in everything else vary depending on the exercise. Sometimes I have 8kg dumb bells in my hands, sometimes 24kg.

    Hope that helps
