    Pretty cool Normal Distribution graph.

    Also those who probably want to lift 95 just go up to 100 cause its a nice "benchmark" number.

      its pretty crazy how the weights themselves act like markers to show all the input

      It has more progression increments plus pullups make you hit failure with your hands before your back and biceps when you start adding weight. Also you probably do them wrong and have no lats anyway.

        Just do more or less reps. It's not like you're hitting a 1rm lat pull down.

          I'm not hitting a 1rm anything. I'm still gonna use the most progressable lifts.

        Get strong enough to do weighted pullups and it has fewer progression increments.

    You can see that 95-130 are lightly used because there's been one or two big guys on there. The 100 is used up from ego lifters looking for a nice round number.

      Do people really ego lift with machines, that seems pretty pointless. I have a home gym so I wouldn’t know.

    Do normoids not follow step by step progressions? Why would you skip a step?

    This is single-handedly the number one worst advice and biggest reason why everyone is so dyel. Weight > form. To progressive overload you have to go over that hurdle and sacrifice form to lift more. The form will come later. When you can do 120kg, you can do 100kg with perfect form but if you just chase the pump and are too insecure to put more weight and use bad form you will never progress above that median.

    But whatever do what you want. My gains started skyrocketing when i stopped chasing pump and obsessing over pump

      You're both right. You should be able to hold it for a second at the peak of the concentric and extend it to a full rom eccentric without losing control, and then go on to do so many that you can't do it perfectly anymore.

      are you natty?

      volume and pump actually do something once you juice up, especially as you get more advanced.

    On a serious note though, that is actually pretty based tbh. Don't mind me fooling around.

    No one but the most autistic of people are pushing themselves to 100% ideal training all the time. Your average gym goer probably could raise the weight 5-10 lbs and be fine, but they keep it where it is because it's comfortable. If you're at 90 though, and you see that nice big, round, three digit number, it gives you the motivation to dig deep and go for it.

      What does that even mean? What's the point of using less weight than you can? If you can exceed your target rep range you have to progress or the set is just cardio

        probably for better form if you’re autistic about lifting. not uncommon for those chasing PRs to do cheat reps

          If you define "failed rep" as "failed form" you still need to progress when you can hold correct form for the target number of reps. That way your correct form max goes up too.

        This is way too much thought for the average DYEL. They think "OK I'll do 3x10 because that's what I heard you should do" and do the same sets with the same weight on the same machine for months until they get bored and stop showing up.

    Looks like your not allowed to lift 105 either. Its kinds like hitting 7 or 9 reps in a set. Ruins the whole workout.

      I'll do 7 but not 9. I stick to prime numbers for my number of reps.

    I think the reason for this pattern is that no one is able to go over 90, and 100 has a mark because it's a round number that a lot of people want to try

    Can anyone tell me how much each plate weighs on this?

      That's a Paramount multistation. They set the stack max to 170lbs for most uses, so I assume 10lbs each plate.

      whats the point of even having the weight written on free weights, the gravitational field strength is different at all points of the earths surface and nobody ever lifts twice in the exact same spot, so just go by feel
