    Smile How much weight do these celebrities lift?

    Just curious how much weight these male celebrities are able to bicep curl.
    The reason I am asking is so as to have a target of what I need to reach to have a decent arm size.
    Obviously it will be an assumption, but what do you guys think?
    The celebrities I was wondering about were Hugh Jackman (X-men 3) and Chris Hemsworth (Avengers 2)?

    Thanks

    There's videos out there of Hugh Jackman deadlifting 400lbs+. I ran a quick search and apparently he deadlifts 410lbs, benches 235, and squats 355.

    Which is very average.

    nailed it.

    Training regularly but no progress?
    You need one or more of these: more food, more weight, more reps or more rest.

    If it's arm size you want you need to prioritize full body size as arms grow in proportion to that. Use a program of mostly compound lifts.

    When you do curls it isn't always about the weight. Reps, rep speed, etc comes into play also. You don't just wanna go heavy all the time.
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough
