I’ve been working out solidly (5+ times a week) since November. The gains I’ve gotten have been pretty damned good, and keep going up. I know that some of this is bound to be “newbie gains”, but I’m wondering if these results are normal, and how long they’ll last:
Bench Press: Began barely able to do the bar. Yesterday I 1RM’ed 250 and can rep 200 8 times.
Squat: Began barely able to do the bar. Can do ten reps at 325.
Hack Squat Machine: Began at (2) plates. Now can rep (6) 45’ers and (2) 25’ers.
Standing Calf Press: Began at 150. Can do 2x50 at 500.
I’m not trying to brag because I know there are a lot of you guys out there who make me look like I should be wearing a baby-t and a pair of tight panties.
But I’ve gone up 15 pounds a week steadily on my bench, both in rep and in 1rm for three months. Are these results as good as I think they are, or…?
