I maxed out my bench a couple days ago and hit 290!! It was the greatest moment of my lifting career lol! I’m 6’2", 210 lbs, and have been training seriously for a year and a half now. I’ve really been playing with how much/what I eat and I’ve finally found something that works well.
I was on the “eat everything in sight” diet, and was up to 223 lbs, but then started to slowly bring it back down to about 195. I am slwoly working my way up to the minimum 230 lb frame i want!
I also did a back/bi workout after and deadlifted 415 lbs on my 4th set, which tied a personal record. This is just a thank you for all the information everyone has put out there…plus I know I will get some support despite my baseball/football friends who have a golfer lift more!!
