how much could you bench when you first started lifting

Yeah i'm going into grade 12 this year, I think 150 was my max, i didn't start benching till last summer, my conditioning coach didn't like to do it unless we were working on explosiveness.


#6

good work man! I saw your pictures, now this... keep going!


#7

#11

So i had school then work today, meaning i went to the gym before school..at 6. Woke my ass up at 5:45 hopped the bus and went and did some chest and biceps. Unfortunately i decided to not have my bfast until after the workout, so I was uncannily weak because of lack of nutrition is what im assuming. So i'm not going to post my workout.


#12

ill post my shoulder workout later but i ended up doing some benchpress at the end and got a new
PR of 315.

This wasn't a bad workout to start it off again, I'll probably be doing chest and bicep Thursday, I'll write it down again, hopefully keep track of it and make some progress.

My Current stats for weight are:

Weight : 180-185
Bf : Probably 12-14

I'm not too worried about this, I'm sure with my diet back on track and getting that 4000kcal a day and close to 300g of protein I should be back to 190 in no time, then hopefully with some more food in me to 200-205 by Feb.

#17

So, my bench is back up to normal 225x6-8 and everything else is getting back on track, Doing 315 for squat reps aswell and my deadlift is looking great as well. So, I'm going back and tri's today, will report in after.


#18

So, It has been a while but I thought I might as well start a training log once again, I'm starting to get my gains back ( I cut down for Cuba roughly 4 weeks ago) and I'm back up to 198 lbs. I set new pr's the 2nd week home, deadlift 405 x5, squat 405 x3, and benched 315x3 ( 3rd rep was with a love tap spot , yeah i know). I will be posting videos after next week, I've decided to do a deload this week and start working up to a heavy lift week where I will be talking a video of all my PR's. I will be hopefully hitting a 495 lbs deadlift, a 335 lbs bench/ maybe 365 ( doubtful, but maybe ) and a 455lbs squat. I'll keep track of my training until these lifts.

and yes, I do plan to hit these numbers in 3 weeks.
