    On and off for years. I think i was benching 320 when i was 19, so when ever i start lifting again i make quick gains. I was also a trainer so i have pretty good knowledge with fitness and what not.

    Health is important man so it's good you got that figured out. 25 isn't too bad, thats like around your prime so if your lifting with proper technique, have a proper diet, the right supplements, and cardio you should make solid gains quickly.

    Maybe you have bad form while squatting? It should be the other way around but for your back they have belts you can use which should help.

  9. 365x7... and I'm in recovery mode was at 425 before I separated my shoulder. It's perfectly reasonable he could do 315, isn't a great feat of strength lol. Just lots of lil guys raggin on ya.

    More like the top 5%.

    There aren't many people who can bench twice their weight. Even powerlifters struggle with this.

    State records start happening at 2.1 -2.25 times your body weight.

    Problem is, the heavier you get, the worse that power to weight ratio becomes. You don't see many 300lb'ers benching 600lbs or more. As you pack on weight, you tend to have diminishing returns.

    This is also why the strongest strongmen are usually 250-275lbs max. The super heavies are generally not as strong in power-to-weight ratios as the slightly lighter guys.

  17. double body weight bench is good, a little harder to achieve the heavier you get but most gym rats cannot bench double their bodyweight.

    3x Dead lift and 2.5-3x squat are harder to come by in my region...I see people with big benches here a lot...but damn they can't do a proper FULL ROM squat or any kind of pull (sumo, conventional, arched back, hitching and sad attempts) that is close to decent numbers.

    I ended a friendship (free intercourse kind) with a girl for calling me a gym rat...because I lift at 6am and she is barely going to bed at that time she called me that...I had to end it :/ I am a respectable powerlifter of the iron game...and not a gym rat '

    Strength training, all around , not only focusing on the 1RM or total (Thanks to Rodja for explaining this to me) is the best base one can get IMO. Good stuff to see someone else also agrees with us !

    Nope. I've always been training high repetition medium weight. Once my routine gets easy ill add another excersisd for that muscle group. Never tried to bench more then 205 ever.

  26. you just went from never benching more than 135 to never benching more than 205. contradiction much?

    Yeah I tried 205 twice. So I guess I don't always bench 135...

    There will come a point in time, if you desire to see increasing gains in size and strength, that you'll have to radically adjust your training regimen and schedule from what it is. I do not believe doing the same thing day in and out will be as benefitial as proposing new styles, exercises, paces etc to the the muscles every 6-8 weeks.

    This leaves very little room for progression and 135 is an absurdly low weight to use for any sort of working set unless you're 120lbs or a chick.
