Probably a silly question, but thanks anyway.
Well, right now...I top out somewhere around 230-240. I use to be able to hit 250-255 regularly but, I don't play Death Metal 260 days a year anymore. That type of physical effort requires maintenance. Pushing yourself will always make you struggle...it's to what extent are you struggling that's important.
It definately has gotten easier for me over the years.
