    i guess if your just going for strength then low reps but id save the PH's for later on in life after you reach a definite plateu.

    Find a weight you can lift 3 times at most. When you are confident, add slightly more weight to it. Be careful and keep up the goal. That is my goal too.

    If you've only been working out for 6 weeks, you'll be doing yourself a huge disservice if you use a PH. If your diet is not spot-on, your gains will be better than they would be with a PH and the diet you probably currently have, not to mention you won't be ****ing with your long and short term health.

    As for benching, you should be able to find some videos on Youtube in which proper form is explained. If you really want to beef up your bench, I'd say you should start with 5 sets of 5 reps. Make sure you have a spotter.

    No, you don't need a spotter. What you need is a power rack. Then set the pins just above your chest and THEN bench from the bottom of the lift.

    Doing this method has yielded the greatest gains for me atleast.
