I'm thinking quite a few people on the list are talking out they a.sses. But then again, given the nature of the internet, you'd expect this already.
In my mind I automatically shave off about 50-100 lbs whenever I see any lifting stats posted.
You get props just for the intention.
To shave off 50-100 from everyone who lists lifting stats is lame as sh*t. You're a buck twenty-five, obviously some people are going to have some numbers that 'wow' you. Its not impossible.
Some people may exaggerate numbers and sh*t, but don't take away from the people that actually lift everyday and push themselves. If it looks unrealistic, call the guy out. I called out someone who had odd looking lifts out and he replied with I was 'jp'
