    This is ridiculous. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. I wish with all these pics you ladies would post your lifting stats. I've only been lifting a few months and would like to see how heavy I can expect to go.

    I've only been lifting a few months, mine are as follows. But honestly, everyone is different when it comes to lifting. My lower body is way stronger than my upper.

    Squats: 100lbs
    Deadlifts: 130lbs
    Barbell Rows: 60lbs
    Bench Press: 50lbs
    OHP: 25lbs (I hate this one... so hard to progress)

    Yes, thank you ladies for keeping the pics going!!!! You both look A-MA-ZING!!!! <3

    I don't have any "after" pictures yet, but I do have a NSV. Yesterday, I went shopping for the first time in awhile and got TONS of compliments on my bum when I tried on some leggings! YAY WEIGHTED SQUATS!!!!

    I'm opposite. My upper is stronger than my lower:

    Squat: 87 lbs
    Deadlift: 105 lbs
    Bench: 75 lbs
    OHP: 57 lbs

    :) Have you tried fractional plates? Best investment ever.

    As far as lifting stats I am a strange case because i work around 3 herniated discs...so sometimes I have to substitute things or do a medium weight more times, but i do what I can,

    I started off very light to make sure i was doing things safely.

    this year (5 reps)
    squat: 115 lbs
    deadlift: 155( i think)
    bench:110( my favorite because it never bugs my back)
    OHP:60

    when i do not feel like i can squat or deadlift I leg press and can do 330 pounds or something, and it doesnt bother my back...and use the leg curl machine, and other accessory lifts.

    i also use the assisted pullup machine because it is my dream to do a pullup some day.

    I woke up today feeling discouraged to all hell about my weight.. Just started back lifting after 2 weeks off with chest infection blah.. and its looking like I am not going to lose this week.
    Which bums me out cause i gained last week (mango rum.. etc.. worth it but sheesh) Anyways.... You all give me hope. I am not too old. I am not too fat. and I am not going to give up.
    Still a lot to learn about whats best for my body but wow.. you guys really rock it. Thanks for the encouragment. :D

    Here, I will contribute my pic, though I need to take a current one. The after was from this summer and it is a little over a year after the first. I have been taking my sweet time because I like to eat a lot of the food:

    Remember folks hijacking/trolling only works if you respond. Liberal use of the ignore button is much better than arguing with silly people.

    Listen to Cranq. Not only is she lovely and smart, she knows when to just ignore people. :bigsmile:

    Know what this thread needs? Moar pictures!

    if you insist.

    I only have like 3 before pics because i hid from the camera most of the time.

    There were also some questions asked on how to get started lifting, but they may have gotten lost in the mess.

    Many good starter programs that have plans include:

    New Rules of Lifting for Women - book form

    Starting Strength - book form

    Stronglifts 5X5 - website: http://stronglifts.com/stronglifts-5x5-beginner-strength-training-program/

    It is important to
    1) start light
    2) focus on form - aided by checking out videos online, videoing yourself and watch for comparison, read the books, take notes, etc
    3) Aim to progress in weight - build up and follow the program you choose to go with
    4) Give it some time - this is not a sprint, it's marathon
    5) Eat - make sure you are not shorting yourself on your calories. You can still do this with a deficit, but too much of one will wear you out, just like with any program.

    That's all I have at the moment, just off the top of my head.
