Ok, just so everyone knows, I don't usually support those "how much can you lift" threads. However, 95% of those threads are geared to the bench press. Well, the bench press is the weakest of the big three, and it is far overrated as a method of determining overall strength. So, I propose a better measure of manhood. The deadlift. The deadlift is a complete total body movement, working from your forearms and hands, up to your trapezius, and back down to your toe flexors. It is one of the most technically difficult exercises, and proper form is a must. So, just out of curiousity as to the responses I will get:

How much can you deadlift???

Your two most important minerals: Iron and Chalk.

If you smoke or don’t wear your seatbelt, please don’t tell me the deadlift is dangerous.

Light weight is an oxymoron.

335lbs at under 140lbs bodyweight. I know I could hit 365 (3.5plates) but I recently broke my foot. No squat work for at least a couple weeks, and deadlifting is out of the question.
I haven't maxed in almost 2 months, so as soon as I come back, I intend on hitting 365.

Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

That's an awesome goal mutt. Good luck, and let us know when you get that HUGE pull.
