Travis Spuhler replied to Marvin's discussion What would be considered physically weak? in the group Exercise
"Those posers who only do half, or third squats give a ton of people a bad name, lol.  For myself, I currently rep 225 comfortably 6-12 times (depends on the working load of the workout), but Leg press closer to 600... Right now, the biggest…"

Carl Monster replied to Marvin's discussion What would be considered physically weak? in the group Exercise
"Hard to gauge here unless you posted a video, esp of the squats. I see guys load up the bar with three 45's each side, then proceed to squat about, from what I would do, 1/3 the way down and then head back up again, their poor knees wobbling…"

Marvin replied to Stein's discussion Around the house in the group The Shirtless Man

Travis Spuhler replied to Marvin's discussion What would be considered physically weak? in the group Exercise
"Honestly man, your lat pull numbers are NOT bad at all. I weigh about the same as you do (I'm closer to 230, but makes little difference) and to date, I still only rep up to 150 on lat pulls.  Each of us is physically different of course,…"

Read your recent post in Growing in Manliness, trying to reply...but keep losing my post (things are hectic at work).  I'll try to post soon, we're going through similiar things.  I wonder how much of your backstory leading to these issues is like my own. I'm posting here so you don't feel everyone is just ignoring your post.  

I think, I need to learn to trust again, and it sounds like you're struggling with the same thing.  Maybe we can help each other?  Send me a message once we're friends and we can talk.
