T-Nation Asks "Are you strong?"

 I review the table and rapidly conclude no. But as a benchmark it is something to strive for. I’ll have to check back in a few months.  I do know that I am making strides, when I started doing dips a few months ago I could barely complete one dip with 112 pounds of assist.  Today I did three sets of 8 reps without any assist.  I think it won’t be too long until I can complete 20.  And I’m still a big dude at 258 lbs.

I found another more detailed set of strength standards here which may actually be more useful as they are broken down by body weight.  Fewer excercises are listed however.
