Hey guys today.
We are chatting about to get into the top 1% of humanity for strength, and you’re probably thinking how the **** do you do that?
But the truth is, you’re probably already in it, but I’m going to run through that anyway. How did this come about? Why the **** am I talking about this?
So I want to show the possibility and potential that every single person has when it comes to becoming the best version of themself.
We make the commitment to helping every single person that comes into contact with us through essentially like face to face.
You can do it online as well, but we want to get every single person’s top 1% for strength.
Strength is ******* king. The stronger you are, the better your life will be. I’m a firm believer on that. Stronger people are harder to kill in every single way.
We, well, are in a premium gym and our we want our training methodologies to be used to get the top 1% of humanity to become the best version of themself.
So what would make you the top 1%? So about 2.4% of the world’s population?
use a gym.
So if you’re already in that, you’re in the 192,000,000.
Hopefully my math is good there.
2% of 8 billion. Yep. Sounds about right. So.
2.4% of the world’s population use a gym. **** all. So if you’re already using a gym, you’re in the top 97.6% damp pad on the back. You just have.
******* high 5.
So the top 1% you need to be in the top.
80 million of the 192,000,000 it’s safe to say that no one people that don’t use a gym probably are not in the top 1% of physical strength. They need you. You actually have to have a catalyst and a stimulus to get to that level.
So according to a report by the international health and Racquet Sports Association of 2009, there are an estimated 183 million gym members worldwide.
Which would make up 162 million in 2017. This represents a membership penetration rate down that sounds sexual of 2.4% of the world’s.
Backs up my claims there. However, it’s important to note that gym membership use doesn’t equate to gym membership attendance.
The same report found that an average gym member attends there gym 104 times per year, or twice a week.
That’s Pitbull. This means that while significant number of people have gym memberships, not all of them tend the gym regularly.
While I’m while I’m reading this, I’m not, it’s very hard to quantify.
Optionally, gym attendant rates can vary by country region, with some areas having much higher rates of gym use than others. Therefore, it’s difficult to provide a definitive percentage of the world’s population to actually use the gym.
So definitively quite hard. So I take this one step further. What does actual top 1% look like on various exercises? So I’ve got grip strength, deadlift, bench, and squat.
Grip strength, like the ****, is that grip strength is like that. I think it’s like a dyno manometer. I think that’s the technical term for it. It’s just scrappy squeezy thing.
That you hold and it tells you your grip strength, grip strength is associated with mortality rate. So the lower your grip strength, a higher chance of dying. You have to believe that or not. I love that union because I’m a smart ************.
I was when I went to uni so for group strength according to a study published in the Journal of Hand Surgery, ******* random journals, by the way, coming out on this podcast.
The average grip strength for men is 47 ish kilos, and for women it’s 27, so that’s average across all people that were tested in this study.
To be in the top 1% for grip strength, men would need to be able to grip at least 80 kilos and women 46 kilos.
That’s pretty hard. So I’ve done a grip strength before. I had a like a little ***** broken wrist and mine was 76. I would say I’m quite strong for grip, especially on my right side.
Yeah, just to give you an idea that if you know me personally, you know that my forearms are not small.
And my grip is not weak, so to give you an idea and to get to the top 1% of grip strength, you’d have to have a better grip than me.
Which is tough to do. Next up, we’ll talk about deadlifts. So according to powerlifting standards here to be in the top 1% of deadlift strength, men would need to be able to deadlift at least 2 1/2% of their body weight and women would be able to need to deadlift at least 1.75.
Times their body weight, so for me I’m 95 kilos. That would be about 2/5.
Which I’m a little bit of a ways off at the minute to be in the top 1% of powerlifters.
The top 1% of power lifters.
Would be higher than the top 1% of the.
If you think about how many people actually do powerlifting, all the millions that go to gyms.
It’s not much. So we’re talking about a percentage of a percentage here.
Let’s talk bench press next, according to pouching, centres have been the top 1% of bench press. Men would need to be able to lift 1.5 times their body weight, and women need to be able to bench press at least one times their body weight. That is probably where I’m at right now with my bench 1 1/2 times.
And then I don’t know many. Yeah, actually, I know a bunch of girls that could probably bench their body weight.
Like they’re ******* small anyway. So like 60K bench for a chick is not like outrageously hard. I would see that little less muscle than us.
So it’s going to be a little bit harder for them, but they weigh less. So it’s all relative.
Girls are like I’m a girl. I’m weak. I’m like, whatever. Like, it’s all ******* relative.
Next up, score according to Palestine Standards, top 1% for squat strength in men would be 2 * 40.
8 and for women, it would need to be 1.5 times.
So for me, 95 kilos like 200 ish 190. I can hit that some of the top 1% for squat, top 1% for bench and deadlift them a little bit.
So for a girl to dead lift 1.5 times their body weight, that’s not a huge dead lift for a lot of them.
I know 60K girls could deadlift 140. That’s like 2X2X plus, and that’s for powerlifting standards.
So how and kind of extrapolate that data to be in the top 1% of the world?
You know, this is completely off top of my head. I would say two times dead left, two times body weight there left for men, 1.5 for women bench press. We would need 1.25 for men and .75 for women squat.
1.75 for men and 1.25 for women would put you on the Tim Fray scale in the top 1% of population.
It is very hard to extrapolate this data, so I’m trying my best here with my bro scientist handle.
So I went over to strengthlevel.com and I punched in.
A dead lift and I want to see the difference that they extrapolate in the differences between advanced and elite. To put you in the top 1%.
So let’s talk elite for men.
Is 250K deadlift? That’s a ******* big deadlift then elite for women is 157.
Damn, alright. And then advanced for men is 200, advanced for women is 120. I think these girl ones are.
So the difference between advanced and elite for women is 37 kilos. The difference between advanced and elite for men is 50 kilos. And say if you fall between those two, you would be in the top 1% for sure.
And then let’s talk about the effects of having a big deadlift.
And the performance AKA putting you in the top 1%.
The bigger your deadlift, I would say the better your physique would look.
That is an extrapolation on performance to physical appearance, and I would say besides those big, fat powerlifting dudes and someone that controlled their nutrition, that would be true.
Then the effects of having a big deadlift on self confidence would also be increased.
Then obviously strength and.
Now, well, they’re going to go off with a big deadlift and then we have mental health as well. So the benefits of becoming in the top 1% of strength could extrapolate down into physique enhancement, self confidence, strength, power and mental health.
So tell me again how being weak is bad for you is is. Yeah. Good for you. It’s not.
Being strong is the best thing you can do, so the other benefits of being the top 1% of humanity for strength, stronger people are hard to kill. As I did say in the intro.
Improve physical health. Strength training can help improve overall physical health by increasing muscle mass, bone density, and cardiovascular health.
Just strength training, not even cardio. It can also help prevent chronic disease such as diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis.
Next up, improve performance being strong can help improve athletic athletic activities and daily activities. It can also help prevent injuries and speed up recovery time.
Next up we got increase some tablets. Some strength training can increase muscle mass, which in turn can increase muscle metabolism, so increase metabolism, not muscle metabolism, and help with manage.
Next up, improved mental health strength training has been shown to have positive effects on mental health and including including.
Reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety and self esteem and improving better health.
Increased longevity research has shown that greater strength, greater levels of strength training can increase life expectancy by reducing the risk of age related disease and improving overall physical health.
So tell me again how being in the top 1% of humanity is not a good thing for strength. I believe it’s one of the most important endeavours you can make.
So from me.
Get ******* stronger. Stop being a purse. Get to the gym, train more. Be more consistent. You know what to do. It’s not hard getting the top 1% and stop complaining about it.
