You shouldn't really be focused on what everyone else can do, since it can be a distraction. But, you seem to be doing excellent in the upper body. You're normally considered doing well when you can bench your weight. But squats need work bud, good is about 2x body weight.

I use it as motivation to better my self when I see other people doing more.

True but I haven't found my plateau yet so I'm finding the motivation to hit it.

True, but some people are just naturally built to do more weight than you.

I only started back in February, and just wondering what benefit 50 curls does? Are you not better doing about 10 tops and failing on the last rep? Or do you mean 5 sets of 10?

Sorry if a dumb question, only been doing hammer curls and reg curls followed by variations of pull up and push ups.

**10 reps

I'm pretty sure he's talking about pounds, not reps.
User avatar #2635 to #2634 - vwanyama (06/26/2012) [-]
That would make more sense lol

No more posting for me after a long day at work.
