    Sheesh - where is the female input? I can't even relate to the amount of weight you guys are pressing right now. I'm just now starting out and I'm wondering the same thing - how much should I start with, since I have no weight training experience.

    Just the bar. No, I'm not female, lol. But regardless of whether someone is or not, starting with just the bar is a good idea, to get the correct form down.

    It's best to start light and move up. You'll look silly squatting with just the bar, but that's what I did at first. Gradually add weight until you can get 8-15 reps on squats, 5-8 on deadlifts, and 6-10 on barbell rows. I do no more than three sets of each exercise, with the last set taken to absolute failure. So far I'm squatting 315, deadlifting 325, and rowing 170. It took roughly a year to get to that point.

    I think my first weighted squats were at 50kgs, and my first proper deadlifts were around 60kgs. Thankfully I've made a bit of progress since then.

    Damn, so almost everyone here was naturally jacked before they started lifting?

    I had lifted previously for about 2-3 years but last fall was hospitalized and essentially lost all muscle (couldn't even do pushups). So When I started this month I knew the form but had no muscle.

    First workout:
    Max squat: 135x8
    Deadlift: 115x6

    4 workouts later:
    Max squat: 205x3
    Deadlift: 185x6

    I think when I actually started these workouts 2-3 years ago I was doing around 80-90 each.

    why is your deadlift 90 pounds less than your squat? what numbers are you using to get these estimates (ie. bench 300x5.)
    Squat: 465
    Bench: 355
    Dead: 585
    Press: 235

    When I first started I wasn't completely cold, I'm a goaltender in hockey so my leg strength has always had to be a major part of my game. When I first started seriously training I was squatting around 225lbs.

    Now after about a year of lifting I can rep 365 9 times, so according to the one rep max calculator my 1RM is around 430lbs.

    That being said, my legs are clearly my forte, I weigh around 180lbs. and only have a 1RM bench press of around 270lbs.

    No idea about the weight, the main thing I remember is shallow sqauts and all round poor form for a while. This was more important to improve than my numbers.

    I was curious as to how much weight some of you started out with when learning to squat and deadlift,
    185 lbs for sets of 5 the first time

    My spreadsheet as nearly everything I've done. It runs from Dec.18, 2011 to today with my progression by session. Check it out if you care to. I missed 2-3 here and there and a week in late January when I had the flu.

    5 weeks

    5'10" 300lbs

    week 1
    Bench Press 120
    Barbell Row 135
    over head press 80
    Dead lift 140
    Squats 130

    Week 5
    Bench Press 215
    Barbell Row 195
    over head press 135
    Dead lift 235
    Squats 265

    *The first 2 weeks I realized I was a lot stronger than I thought, so weight increased quickly. I now use micro weights and increase be 1/4 pound every time I get under the bar (Bench and row)* Squat and dead lift are a little slower now but I do increase every week.

    I picked up a barbell for the first time in November last year. Since I was the only one in the gym, had no one to watch my form and did not have a squat or power rack, I started with a 22lbs bar for the first workout.

    Second workout - I added another 22lbs and was able to squat a grand 45lbs for 3X5, was having a tough time finding the right balance since I was loading weight on the bar, picking it off the floor, cleaning it on my chest, then putting the damn thing on my traps and squeezing out the reps

    I think this is what I started at on the basic lifts on an extremely conservative note -

    Squats - 45lbs for 3X10
    OHP - 45lbs for 3X8
    Bench - 55lbs for 3X8
    Deadlift - 90lbs for 1X5
    Rows - 85lbs (started only abt 45 days ago) for 3X5

    Pathetic I know but I started at a BW of 128lbs at 5' 10" in a gym which still has no spotter or safety mechanism if I fail a rep on Squats or Bench

    Lulz. These Squat threads are so predictable.

    Anyway props to all the posters who put up honest #s.

    I don't think I've seen a 495 Squat in this forum before. Couple of pretty good 4-platers recently though.

    Just started doing these, so pretty fresh in my mind.

    For about 10-12 reps each for 3 sets.

    Squat: 150lbs (could probably up that a little, but working on form)
    Deadlift: 110lbs (could probably up that a little, but working on form)
    Military: 100lbs
    Bench: I don't know, I started doing these as a kid so I'm pretty experienced and can do like 200+ lbs. I'd suggest starting at like 125lbs and see where you are at. I feel bench is the one you can start adding a lot of weight onto quickly as you become more comfortable with it. Least risk for serious injury imo.

    Since you were very ill, and lost so much muscle, be careful with the poundage progression. There is no rush. Muscles have a much better blood supply than tendons/ligaments/joints. So your muscular strength can recover and go up very rapidly while your weakened joints lag behind. That has caused me no end of problems.

    Starting very light, and adding 5lbs to your squat and dead every week for the next year is +250lbs, even if you take a couple weeks off. That is some progress. The longer you can make small gains on a regular basis without getting injured, the better you become.

    For squats, Probably 95lbs? I'm more clear about deadlifts which were a little over 225. My first deadlift plateau was around 295lbs at 3 months of lifting. The most I've done is 455lb deadlift 2.5 years later. Squats, I've done 315
