    Be honest, there's no need to lie.

    If you don't know, its best to admit that you don't know.

    But if you know for certain if you can or cannot lift 100 lbs at least to chest height, then say so here.

    I'm interested in the results.

    The heaviest thing I've lifted in the last two weeks has been a cold beer. From the top of the bar, to my mouth.

    a 100 lb weight. a 100 lb feed sack. a 100 lb person.

    If you read the post, you'd see that this is for people that know one way or the other... not people who guess they can or can't.

    I knew it wasn't directed to me. But I guess I'll be the first to answer the question. Yes. Of course how easily I can lift it depends on how compact the 100lbs is. 100 lbs on a bar...no problem. A 100 lb box that is only 1'x1'x1' WOULD be a problem

    Think of a 50 lb bag of dog food. Now think of one on top of the other. That's 100 lbs.

    The max i can lift is probibly 400 pounds, i know it sounds odd that i can even lift 400 pounds but i push 50 pound baskets around all day at my store. And i have maxed out at about 12 baskets before.

    Pushing 400 pounds and lifting 400 pounds from floor to chest level are 2 completely different things.

    As far as 100 pounds goes.. it really isn't that much weight. I bet most of the people on here could lift that if they needed to.

    yep, i can lift 100 pounds, and probly more for that matter, it really isnt all that much weight. i think most people would be surprised to find out that they can
    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

    If gumbyman can deadlift 400 lbs, then I'm fucking Barbara Streisand.

    I agree with what the one fella said about how the weight is distributed and what its made out of. If you had to lift a floppy thing that was 100 lbs, it'd be a lot more difficult than a solid 100 lb thing.

    Haven't tried to deadlift per se, but given that I do 3 sets of 65 lb bicep curls (both arms) every other day, I would imagine that 100 would be doable.

    Unless your a body builder it's unlikley anyone can lift 400 lbs. I can can lift over 100 lbs, but I'm so out of shape right now I will probably pull every muscule in my upper body doing it.

    Well pixies how much weight can you lift, and you forget i have stated in this post that i pick up heavy 50 pound sacks of dog food all day. So ya im used to lifting alot because thats what i do all day. And i did not say that i could dead lift 400 pounds. All i am saying though is you try pushing 600-900 pound baskets all day and see how you fair.

    I have lifted 100lbs. Whats amazing is how heavy long boxes filled with comics can be. They can actually give you great work out.

    I know I can. My mom is about 80 pounds and I can lift her easily to move her from her chair to her bed. Also my daughter is over a hundred pounds and I pick her up when we are joking around.

    Shopping at Sams club is a good way to test your strength.
