Push-Pull Strength


Did you know in the old weightlifting days it was rule, that you should be able to pull the same amount of weight that you push?

Example: If you Bench Pressed 225, you should be able to do 225 lbs. bentover rows,
T-bars rows, & seated rows.

In my days, I could Bench slightly over 200 lbs. & would pull 185-225 lbs. on bentover rows. I could only get 225 for 3 sets of doubles, but 185 lbs. I would do for up to 10-12 reps x 5 sets. I weighed 119 lbs.

The Deadlift is different, you should be able to Dead close to your Squat or slightly heavier.
