  1. With one hand.

    I can do a couple of reps of 40 lbs. with my right hand.
    I can do a lot of reps of 20 lbs. with my left hand.

    What about you guys?

    This reminds me of the "How much ya bench?" with Emilio Estevez skit on SNL. I believe that particular episode featured Pearl Jam. I could be wrong about that though.

    Not to belittle an already pointless thread, but what exercise are you refering to pray tell.

    Bicep curl, tricep curl, vertical press, etc. All motions that use your arm/chest.

    Which reminds me, I need to go to the gym. :D

    When I read this my first answer was "Oh probably srill around a hundred pounds per hand."

    Dude...Rude surprise. Working in a childrens hospital has apparently been seriously bad for my muscle situation. I went and got out my old weights, which are now my sons weights, and discovered that the same effort I remember exerting to lift 120 lb for one arm rows lifts all of...

    85 lbs.

    This ain't right. I have always been the strongest guy in the room, unless there was someone on the freakish end of the spectrum present. (For example: Frequent Mr Universe/Mr. Olympia, Ronnie Coleman wasa police officer here in Arlington for much of the time I rode the ambulance for Arlington EMS. He would definitely be stronger.) Based on an 85 lb one arm row, I'm now not a whole lot stronger than average. That sucks.

    Now I gotta start lifting again. :rollno:

  8. So I take it your still pulling the camel toe elvis look huh? Wherever you drop some pounds let me know so I can pick em up eh? :D

    Well since I've been at MSU, I haven't gained weight, which is what normally happens to students away from home for the first time. I had a period of weight loss, but studies took precedence over working out. I did get my bench press to 250, which is 40 lbs more than I weigh. Versus 220 over the summer before school.

    Anyway, shut up slim. I think I remember you whining about how heavy my Corvette was. :D Next semester you are welcome to come up for a weekend to watch a game and get smoked by me in racquetball.

  11. A donut. To my mouth. Its useful.
  12. Sweet. I'll bet you can do that a dozen times in a sitting.

    I can lift my bass and amp, that's all that matters :D
  14. I can only do plain.

    I'm working up to the glazes and sprinkles, but right now, it's just too hard.
  15. A Peavey T-40 :p .

    Because if this does include with the assistance of a dolly then I can TOTALLY lift more than 40 lbs...over and over again.
