Not at all difficult for me to hear, nice to hear your take. In fact, I have been a big admirer of your lifts and to have your numbers drug free is something special so congrats.
The question really stemmed from a difficulty of reference, and was not necessarily aimed simply at the random total I suggested. I lift in a gym generally full of people who total lower than that, somewhere around that, or well above. The problem is that those well above clearly use and it is very difficult to decide whether say a 95kg guy sitting at 8-9bf doing say 230/160/270 is drug free, when they claim they are. The heavier lifters are generally not too reserved about admitting assistance.
In reality, I'm not far away from the random total I put out as an example anyway apart from my deadlift, in which I currently suffer from mental restrictions due to smashing my disc around 4 or 5 months ago. I wanted to really test the water from posters on here who will fall into either natty or assisted to see what they thought their natural potential was and when they decided that it was time for drug assistance.
Thanks all for responses.

Happy to help mate if you need programming etc. Just give me a shout

I like you Aaron but I don't agree about everyone should be hitting 620 within a year. Yeah of course good athletes can do it, but many can't as well.
I guarentee many train hard, but struggle to get strong that fast.

Haha cheers mate, I like you too...

Buuuuuut, I'm pretty confident that if one of these individuals was told they could have a million quid in 1 year if they hit a 620 total... they would hit a 620 total.

I agree though that some people need to work harder for the same results, and also have unique training requirements... but that's where a good coach comes in and proper programming.

It all comes down to compliance. If life means they can't comply with the system that is needed to make progress because of other priorities then obviously they won't (and some peoples requirements are more demanding than others).

Also if anybody is struggling to progress and in the west yorkshire area, you are more than welcome to come lift with us in my humble gym/garage.

I have only ever known drug free, but of course. Why fit yourself in the curve of normality, there is ALWAYS the exception to the rule; the 99th percentile.

The biology of these people is often identical to the rest... what does differ is their will to succeed.

Anybody at that weight should hit that within a year in my opinion, and if not I guarantee it is rarely, if ever 'genetics'. It's because of a lack of commitment or moral fibre, or some other external factor like "oh, but I have to jog every day with my boyfriend" (diseases aside).

Honestly, if you are pitching that mediocre total as a question to your genetic limit then you are already setting yourself crazy low standard that you will probably never achieve.

Drug free lifters are hitting 50% more than that in the IPF...
Thats like asking if a 14 second 100m time is attainable drug free.

Maybe this is not what you wanted to hear, but you asked the question.

I don't think there's many other than being able to choke slam anybody that tries to mug you at a cash machine... (speaking from experience).

In all seriousness though, I think it can actually cause mental issues.
Out of all my lifting mates, the majority suffer with anxiety and panic disorders (myself included).
Out of all my non-lifting friends, I can't say the same (probably not enough total friends for it to be scientifically 'statistically significant').

Not sure if it's from training ups causing down, or the drain it has if you commit to the training week in week out without fail.

I'm sure others will share their thoughts on this (I would appreciate knowing if other people have this trend in their relevant groups...)

Trained over at Aarons tonight

Anderson squats, high bar
Was meant to be 145, but feeling good and the heaviest week on x8's so 150 it is. All decent enough, tiring a touch towards the end.

Good sets


Very warm evening, but a good session and good to catch up with Aaron again

Good session mate. My injury is clearing up, managed a 280 paused squat last night!

We need to get you a bit more of a following on Instagram.
Not only because you deserve it ....but also so you can attract some of the 'free advice' crew to your comments section. I was genuinely disappointed there was no-one telling you that you should squat low-bar
Tongue Wink

haha I love them guys!

Managed to grind out 250 for 7 on squat. No mean feat but I am really, really s**t at reps so this puts me in a good place. Also it's my insta which I've started using for videos as youtube is a pain in the tits and fb is just drama after drama.
