Fried_Sushi

what do you mean by starting point? I hit it after about 18 months. I guess t signifies that you are no longer a noob but a legit lifter. then when you hit 2/3/4/5 you're in with the big boys.

askme
askme

1/2/3/4 will put you above 90% of people who go to the gym, and generally indicates that you've been training well for a year or two or training on and off for much longer
2/3/4/5 will generally be enough to make you the strongest person in any commercial gym, except that one dude who comes in on thursdays and squats 6pl8 singles

I don't know what 8X6 is. I didn't say that 1/2/3/4 is the minimum I said that it is when you can call yourself a legit lifter. If you train hard and eat enough you should really be achieving intermediate stats within 18 months-2 years.

8x6 is penis size. Not sure if its meming but people on this site have been echoing that your shaft must be 8 inches in length and 6 inches in circumference as a "starting point" to be able to penetrate "the cake" from behind. Again probably just memes because thats well above average

so 1 plate is 2*20kg+20kg = 60kg (135lb)
1/2/3/4 is doing 1 pl8 overhead press, 2 pl8 bench, 3 pl8 squat and 4 pl8 deadlift

I think this is a good explanation, it's a good signal that you have dedicated actual time to weightlifting. From here I think other good indicators are the 1000 pound club and/or a 300+ wilks score. By no means the end, just good benchmarks.

As far as I'm concerned as long as you lift it at least once then you've reached it. But it is better to do it for reps of course.

How much mass would I need to put on to hit 1/2/3/4? Currently 145# at 6’0, just hung up the spikes after years as a competitive collegiate 5k guy. Been lifting 3 days a week the past month or two, gone from 135 to 225 for deadlift, 135 squat to 205, 95 to 135 on the bench, and 45 to 75 for OHP, all for 8 reps as the last of a 4x8 hypertrophy routine. I assume I’ll have to add mass to hit 1-2-3-4 but I don’t want to get too big in case I want to start trying to hit fast 5ks again.

TechHater
TechHater

@TalkBomber
Thats not a good way to look at it. There are lifters your weight doing those numbers. The question is more how long will you have to train and its different for everyone but 1/2/3/4 is usually a 6 month to a year for a dedicated novice

Neither.

1/2/3/4 isn't a starting point. That was the meme.

1/2/3/4 is a milestone that's a big deal, since it usually takes lifters a few months or even a year to reach, depending how they go about it.

Most people who go to the gym don't get to 1/2/3/4, which is why it's impressive.

JunkTop
JunkTop

@Supergrass

less than a year to reach
Hmm.
I'll agree that average gym goers don't reach 1/2/3/4 because they don't train squats and DLs. I train at the only gym in my town with platforms (besides the crossfit gym next door) and I've never seen anyone DL, but a couple people just use it occasionally cus the weights and bars get moved around.

SniperGod

1/2/3/4 is basically a black belt in lifting. It impresses the normies, yes you are pretty strong, and it has taken dedication to get there, however, it is basically the beginning of your serious lifting journey. A black belt means you have completely mastered the basics and that is what 1/2/3/4 mean Imo. What you do afterwards is entirely up to you. You could focus on aesthetics and jump on PPL or you could focus on strength and hop on something like the Texas Method to get to 1.5/3/4/5. Or a mix of both would be something like PHUL.

TalkBomber
TalkBomber

@Ignoramus

It depends, what do you think is a reasonable expectation to set for yourself?

1. Showing more dedication than 99% of the population in regards to physical activity
2. Matching the standards of autists on the internet who have a several year head start on you.

I'm probably underestimating. Not even 1% of the population can do 1/2/3/4. So yeah, it is a pretty big accomplishment.

Depends on proportions, age, gender, height etc. But for an average guy between 15-45 it's when you're noticeably stronger then the average schlub on the street. If you're under 14%bf you also likely won't look like complete shit. Should be 1.1/2/3/3.4 though, going by an average build.

2/3/4/5 is much closer to balanced for someone with average proportions, deadlift is still a bit high though.

I hit 135 ohp for reps and 225 for reps in a reasonable amount of time, but 3plate squat is hard and 4 plate diddlys I'm still far from. That shits tough.

Is this bait? 2/3/4/5 is literally more balanced than 1/2/3/4

If we did a poll on Veeky Forums I bet maybe half of this board could actually get 1/2/3/4. Despite this they all still probably go into threads like this and say "bro 1/2/3/4 is nothing".

Then you have the guys who act like 2/3/4/5 isn't really even that strong when maybe 10% of Veeky Forums can lift that heavy.

1/2/3/4 isn't a starting point at all, but it's the point where you can consider yourself decently strong.

This desu. I assume the number comes from your aveage 6ft dude being taller and heavier than someone 135lbs so you slightly reduce the numbers

I'm 17, about 5'5 weight around 135 at maybe 12%bf and this is kind of accurate. Been lifting for a year

I do push press: 130 for reps
Bench: 170 for reps
Squat: 235 for reps
Deadlift: 335 (sumo), 315 (conventional)

You realise different bars have different amounts of whip to them yeah?

Power bars have fuck all whip, I got a vid of me deadlifting 640 on one and it barely fucking bends at all.

Meanwhile olympic bars whip like crazy which is probably what you're used to.

Then there's deadlift bars used in some powerlifting feds which have even more bend and makes deadlifting easier.

2 plate overhead press is way more advanced than those other lifts

1/2/3/4. I suggest gaining 50 pounds over the next year or so.

We have had polls, barely anyone lifted close to 2/3/4/5, most people weren't at 1/2/3/4 (way more than half were below it).

Even with estatting, most people here didn't lift that, and then say shit like this. It's ridiculous.

Does it matter what percentage of this board can hit the numbers though?

You don't have to be strong to realise they are objectively entry-level numbers. Not that you shouldn't be proud of hitting them, it's a fantastic milestone and it takes consistent work to get to.

But when there's teenagers and grills lifting more than that, maybe it's time to set the bar a bit higher for what you consider strong.

@Snarelure
There's barely any teenagers or girls lifting that much, there's exceptions to any rule.

I absolutely guarantee theres some powerlifting teen out there benching 3pl8, that doesn't change that it's a pretty huge bench.

1/2/3/4 are heavy lifts, it being achievable for lots of people doesn't make it beyond entry level.

@TechHater
Also, yes it matters, people go around shitting on lifts that are pretty good in the real world saying they hit them within 6 months, when in reality most people here haven't even lifted six months, and don't move close to that weight, even with estatting.

@PurpleCharger
Yeah, those lifts are pretty good numbers, and while I did hit it within 6 months of lifting, I also had been doing manual labor that required lots of heavy lifting for most of my life. If I had gone from couch to gym without ever having picked up a weight there's no way in hell I could've hit that in 6 months, and given how my lifts have stalled, I probably wouldn't have been able to hit it.

"lead a horse to water cant make him drink" you have to show your kid why they need the sport or martial art so they naturally develop interest.
