In addtion, please scroll to middle of page to the gray and black chart for
Professional Firefighter Strength Standards
One Repetition Maximum (1-RM)
The standards are part of the "Professional Firefighter Profiles"
validated physical evaluation.
Below that, see Fitness Assessment - Exercise Physiologist
According to a study 50% of men in their twenties are able to squat
over 185 lbs and 10% over 250 lbs. For benchpress the corresponding
figures are 135 lbs and 170 lbs and for deadlift 210 lbs and 245 lbs.
BODY WEIGHT CLASS: 161 - 180 POUNDS - MIDDLE ADULTHOOD - MEN / WOMEN
BODY WEIGHT CLASS: 181 - 200 POUNDS - MIDDLE ADULTHOOD - MEN / WOMEN
And, from my clarification I'll repost...
"AVERAGE MAN :
height = 5'10 - 6'
weight = 160 - 180 lbs.
bench press (5x) = 125 - 175 lbs.
deadlift (5x) = 150 - 200 lbs.
squat (5x) = 175 - 225 lbs.
bicep curl (5x double) = 60 - 80 lbs.
bicep curl (5x single) = 30 - 40 lbs.

numbers where I train My strongest part is my calves and legs overall.
