I'm a regular over at http://ironstrong.org, started lifting weights regularly in April 2011 after I lost 85lbs of weight. I started modestly, with just the bar on most exercises, and as of April 2014, I'm able to lift:

  • Squat: 455lb
  • Bench: 290lb
  • Overhead press: 170lb
  • Deadlift: 520lb

I'm still improving, both in the amount I can lift, and removing the amount of fat I'm carrying around.
