Now I can see guys on here saying ''Well you're never strong enough!''
As an athlete in general you need to balance out many aspects of physical training to have optimal performances:
stamina (lactic acid tolerance)
Strength is just one aspect (it does increase your power as well). I believe there comes a point where spending hours to increase your squat from 400 to 450 which probably won't have much of an impact, when you could be working on your cardio, flexibility, etc.
My theory/estimates are the following (based on say a 5'9-6'0 200lbs individual):
500 deadlift (2.5 x BW)
400 squat (2 x BW)
300 bench (1.5 x BW)
200 press (1 x BW)
Of course this applies with any height or weight, just use the (BW x) formula. I know this has been discussed before, but it's always the same arguments ''I don't need to be any stronger'' or ''I need to be stronger'', yet people rarely realise how many other aspects they are neglecting by focusing solely on strength.
What are your thoughts on this?
