    "I used to bench press 300 pounds."

    Translation: You had 265 pounds on the bar (close enough for horseshoes), your butt was so far off the bench you could have driven a Bugatti Veyron under it and your spotter, the guy who was shouting, "It's all you, bro!" was lying too as he was probably bearing about one-third of the weight at that point.

    "I run six miles a day."

    Translation: *last week* you ran 4-5 miles five days that week.

    These are mostly guys, by the way. Women don't tend to spin such yarns. I'll get the women on an eating lies thread.

    "I stopped doing deadlifts because of my back"

    Translation: You have terrible form, and should probably be supervised at all times when near weights.

    "I can squat 300 pounds!"

    No, you can do about a 1/4 squat with that weight. Get down to parallel (medical conditions permitting) and we'll talk.
