    Anyone that can hold you down and rape you is stronger than you. How much you lift is irrelevant at that point.

    No he's a stupid retard who doesn't understand that cardio chads literally recover up to 3x faster than fat powershitters.
    Do your cardio, get a higher VO2 max = your body replenishes oxygen and recycles lactate faster.
    I never have to rest more than 3 minutes on my absolute heaviest lifts.

        110kg bench press at 75kg bodyweight.
        I did athletics in school and kept running + cycling after I left school. I never lifted weights until 3 or 4 years ago, because I looked in the mirror one day and realised I was becoming T-Rex mode with strong legs but no upper body.

              I'm not anywhere near a 110kg bench, but a 110kg bench for 3-4 years of training just isn't good at all. I will probably reach a 110kg bench within 1 year.

                Right, but you said were still lean. You didn't have much muscle mass. So what was your BMI?
                My BMI when running a 21 minute 5k was 25. If you can't figure out why that's more impressive than someone with a BMI of 20 running 5k in 20 minutes then there's no point in this discussion.
                Reach 2pl8 on bench and then see what kind of 5k result you get.

                I only started lifting 3 months ago. Before that I did zero sports (basically just staying at home programming and studying all day). In those 3 months, I have progressed at a steady rate and increased my bodyweight by 7kg whilst not increasing bodyfat. It's not about when we start, but what within the time, and I would argue that I have done substantially better than you relative to the time we've both spent in the gym.

                I don‘t have a conception of who the average fitizen is. However, from your numbers I can tell you this: You are most likely someone with below average genetics, who despite his genetic shortcomings managed to become stronger and fitter than the average joe. I think that‘s admirable actually!

                There's a powerlifter who maxes out on bench at 115 but can deadlift 270 after years of training.

            I don't back squat or dead lift. I started weight lifting because running and cycling had given me decent lower body muscle mass but nothing up top and I wanted to balance out my physique.
            I deadlifted a few weeks ago to see how heavy I could go and I got up to 3pl8s. For someone who doesn't train deadlift, walking in and hitting 3pl8 is pretty good I think. I have no intention of programming it regularly.

      This.

      I used to ignore cardio, but one I got seriously into it, I can shorten my workouts by needing less recovery time (yes, I lift heavy, need only 2 minutes between sets at 3pl8 bench)

      Cardio is essential.

    If you are trying to be a powerlifter he is probably right. For any other purpose than lifting as heavy as possible for 1 rep you probably don't need 5 minutes of rest.

    I think there's definitely wisdom in what he's saying. If you are specifically training to lift heavy, then you'd want to rest longer so you can be completely recovered.
    The thing is, even if you are training to lift heavy, you wouldn't train like this all the time. Maybe two days a week. You still want to train hypertrophy and even sometimes endurance because those things train your muscle's ability to deal with fatigue from lactic acid buildup.
    But if you are only resting for like 60-90 seconds, you are not lifting your heaviest.
