"Do you even lift?“ Welcome to the thread of lifting. A regular gym routine might be foreign to your average gamer, but taking an interest in your health should never be unfamiliar. For those of you who are fitness enthusiasts, post some of your experiences here to keep yourself (and others) motivated. From a personal standpoint, I started a 5x5 strength training program on August 1st. Here were some of my lifts after 3 months: Squat: 215 Deadlift: 225 Bench Press: 140 Row: 120 Overhead Press: 90 All exercises were done with a barbell (no machines) and with a full range of motion. No half reps! Squats below parallel, bar touching chest on the bench, and so on. My lifts are a little higher today, though. I'm also one of those "skinny dudes" who struggle to put on weight but over the past year I've managed to put on 15 lbs of lean mass. If you're like me, feel free to ask questions!
