How Physically Strong Are You?

Recommended Posts

I'm into weight lifting and martial arts. I participate in both regularly, but other than that I'm pretty sedentary for the most part so I don't consider myself to be athletic. 
 
I haven't done a whole lot with free weights yet, but one of my cousins is going to help get me started with learning proper form and such for all of that pretty soon. For the time being I've used weight machines. 
 
I can generally lift 100-185 pounds on any machine involving my arms, shoulders, and/or back. I can lift about 300 pounds on the squat machine, 480 pounds on the leg press, and around 280 pounds on the leg pull.
 
I hope to get into free weights soon, because I've heard that's what you really need to work with in order to maximize your physical strength potential.

My strength is weak as an kitten.

 

My strength is great as an assassin if someone insults my parent. 

 

Depends.

I've never had the change to figure out all the bench pressing stats.  :(

 

I did rip part of a phone book in half once though. And I'm stronger than the average girl. But... sadly, that's the extent of my knowledge on the subject.

My strength would be average at best, as I'm not too strong, nor am I too weak.

If I wanted to be honest. I am probably average in the strength department. I'm neither weak or strong in my opinion.

I used to weight lift in high school, but since I've dropped it I'm pretty weak.

I don't exactly work out much. Never have the motivation to do it consistenly. So as a result I don't think I have much overall strength. One of my many weaknesses.

I don't have a lot of strength as far as lifting and such. I workout regularly but it's not strength training. I just stick to cardio and try to maintain weight and tone. I honestly don't think I could lift a whole lot if I tried.

I'm pretty weak to be honest. It's almost impossible for me to lift anything more than 50 pounds, and a struggle when it's more than 30 or 35 pounds. And that's if I am in a position to lift it in a way that makes it as easy as possible to pick it up.

I can do around 285 lbs. now--and I'm done with lifting (didn't do much of that anyway). I'm getting older and cardio is more important than weight training.

I probably wouldn't be considered the strongest person around. But I've found that strength doesn't always matter so much as leverage, momentum and how to focus the strength I have.

Strong enough to walk 10 miles carrying anywhere up to 70 pounds in one arm at a time. Not always 70. On lighter days it is less than 15.

Fairly strong. I enjoy lifting weights. Plus, I have to be strong enough to maneuver a 75 pound telescope tube to its mount.

I guess I might be strong, when I really want to show off I can be.

Im not particularly strong but I do have that like hidden nerd strength that comes in handy when I need to lift something heavy.

Not much, really. Currently, my workout is

Lat pull, 39kg 2 x 25 reps
Chest press 32kg 2 x 25 reps
Seated row 32kg 2 x 25reps
Pec fly 39kg 2 x 25 reps
Rear delt 37kg 2 x 25 reps
Rotary torso 44kg 4 x 25 reps (2 x 25 left, 2 x 25 right)
Back extension 54,5kg 2 x 25 reps
Ab bench 3 x 50 crunches
Calf extension 41,5kg 2 x 25 reps
Leg press 64kg 2 x 25 reps

For now, Seated leg curl 52kg 2 x 25 reps, Seated leg extension 25kg 1 x 20 reps right leg only, to aid recovery of my right leg.

The above is all done twice a week.

Twice a week, various cardio stuff, depending on the day, usually 30 mins or 45 mins of constant exercise because I despise interval training despite knowing how effective it is.

Soon I'm switching to three sets of everything again, but that's a bit too much for now. I do all of this solely to help me in fencing training and because I like to have some muscle definition. I'm not looking for raw power, which is why I don't really use high weight anywhere, but I don't consider myself to be weak, or anything.

My job requires that I be able to lift up to fifty pounds and I can do as such, but barely. So, I don't know if that is weak or strong for the average none body builder.

I can take in all of the groceries in one go. Yeah, beat that, SUCKERS! But to be fair, I'm not that strong, but I'm not hopeless when it comes to moving heavy stuff.

I'm not extremely strong, but I'm not weak either. 

I started going to the gym about two months ago, three days a week. As of now, I can lift a good 60 lbs, no problem. I run about a good 2 miles on the treadmill, 3 sets of 20 push-ups and 2 sets of 10 crunches.

My main strength is in my legs, and since I just started taking Tang Soo Do, it will help build my overall abilities.

Just over average, I guess. I play Soccer, and get into brawls pretty often.

Whenever I hug my cousin, Lito, I lift him up off the ground by a few inches and he's heavier and a bit taller than me.
