Nah, anything over 3 plates is solid af.
but yeah when I see a 18 year old girl pulling 500 pounds at 120 pounds I feel weak af.
I did it back when I went to LA...then some dude came up to me mirin hard. I stopped after that.To the best of my knowledge these are my numbers.
Also, do you dudes do the hip thrust movement on bench for core and glutes? I want to do it, but you only see chicks doing it in gym.
Don't sell yourself short, there are dudes that go to the gym for years and still cant hit 315.It doesnt seem like anything when you see dudes out here doing 5 to 600..

Plus majority of people hitting 5+ on bench either aren't natural or weigh well over 250 if not 300 pounds.
Ive done multiple powerlifting comps and I don't think Ive seen anyone under 300 bench 5+ before.
It's called team camaraderie, just like hitting the end zone, that is the reason for the celebration. The real point is to build confidence as an athlete. None are power lifters, none participate in any comps, and all lift for function as athletes.
