Weight lifting, curling

I used to lift regularly in highschool, i could never bench for ****, but i could curl my *** off. Here at my house, i have a weight bench, and had the curling "device" at the end of it, which most benchs do. I ended up maxing out the weight on it, which was 120 pounds, and i could do about 3 sets of 25 reps. Being 165 pounds, that used to rock.

Nowadays, i can do maybe 12 reps of 120 pounds, but only 1.5 sets. So one set of 12, and then a set of like, 5-7 reps.

Anyone max out what they can curl?

Re: Weight lifting, curling

I don't know too much about weight lifting, but that sounds like alot of weights. That sounds pretty good to me. Must be nice to be in shape.

As for me, I can do 6-8 reps, with a total of 12 sessions on 12 ounce curls. Time for another 12 pack for my non-existant 6 pack

Re: Weight lifting, curling

I curl dumbbells... and when I try to max, I'll do 70 lb dumbbells... and I can do them about 5-7 times... otherwise, I curl 60 lb dumbbells all the time, and I do 45-50 lb dumbbells on those 'complete' curls... I haven't used a curl bar in about 4 months.

of course, I'm 6'1"-6'2" and 245-250 pounds (the weight varies each week.. right now I'm on the 245, hoping to get to the 240-245 cycle).. as for height, I'm somewhere in the middle there, getting closer to that 6'2"

Re: Weight lifting, curling

I lifted three times a week in High school and middle school for wrestling, I was at 155lb class.

Now I lift MAYBE every other month. More of a push up, Diamond, Situp guy.

Re: Weight lifting, curling

Well I am an amateur bodybuilder and as for curling dumb bells the most weight I have done is 50 pound dumb bells 6 reps for each arm. But when it comes to curling a Bar bell bar I can do 130lbs about six times also. I have never maxed out in curling, but I have in leg press, dead lift, and bench press. I can do 900 pounds on the leg press, 315 lbs for dead lift, and 300 lbs on bench press.

Never could build upper body.

Lower body was where it was for me.

Re: Weight lifting, curling

I used to do Leg Presses and Squats a good amount but stopped after I thought I tore an ACL snowboarding. My knee was so weak for 2 months I could barely walk, but it's good now.

The ****ed up thing is I started doing leg presses/squats to try and strengthen my knees for winter fun. Imagine the forces your knees and legs absorb when you case it on the landing of a 50 foot stepup snowboarding...yea ouch is right.

See I'm the opposite, I can't do anything with my legs anymore b/c of screws and such. I'm starting to work on upper body again, I know I'm not gonna be a small person, so might as well use my large frame for something lol.

Re: Weight lifting, curling

never saw this thread..............and i'm all into the fitness thing


anway, i really dont max out anymore b/c the routine i am on really doesnt say to max out, just use the heaviest weights you can to complete the exercies, generally, maxing out is seeing how much you can do one time, at least thats what i was told.

with that being said, out fitness center doesnt have a barbell for squats/deadlifts or a legpress machine, so everything is done by dumbells, which is fine by me b/c the mass cycle i am on allows me to get the full effect using what i have.

as far as curling, i do machine curls and freeweights, on a machine, i start at 60lbs and increase by 15 till i hit 105. the reps are (10,10,10,8).....then on dumbell curls i just do the 30lbs b/c the next highest one is 50.......thats too much for 4 sets of 10

as far as bench is concerned, i was curious as to how much i could do so i tried today and hit 240 as the newest max...........last time i maxed out was in high school at 185.............and i am about the same size now as i was in hs, just with about 10lbs less body fat. i think 240 is good considering i am only 170

Re: Weight lifting, curling

I should try benching again, my freshmen year i benched 145.

I hated that. I could lift all kinds of crazy ****, but people always asked "what can you bench?"

Re: Weight lifting, curling

I've never had a terribly strong upper trunk... which would be pec deck and bench. I can curl like crazy, but I can't bench very well, and I can only do 140 or so on the pec deck ... separating my shoulder my senior year of HS didn't help anything there either.

I dislocated both of my sholders in separate incidents, and it makes it hell trying to bench anything heavy.
