Strength Q: How Long Did It Take?


#1

to squat/bench/deadlift/overheadpress/ two plates, three plates, four plates etc. (on ea. side)

just curious to how long some of you stronger guys took. im only just on two plates each side and aiming for four! (squats&deadlifts i mean, no benching or any pressing for me ): )


#2

Squated
2 6-8 months
3 1-1.5 years
4 3 years

Bench
2 1.5 years
3 hard to say took some years off in between
4 haven't

Deadlift
2 first pull was 230lbs
3 hard to say took some years off in between
4 l year after coming back to lifting

OHP
2 I'm on the way but I've only been doing them seriously 4 months currently trying 1rm about 190lbs


#3

dday wild we have the same first DL pull !!

but else it seems pretty right(well i havent gone 4 plates in anything) but rest seems good..


#4

3 years for 4 plates? wow. thats a heck of a long time. but the road to glory and strength is long and ardous.
