and there really isnt anyway i could really mess my self up im not going to injure my self because im not going to lift heavy. unless your talking about my internal organs?
The whole point of PHs is to lift heavy and grow. You aren't going to get size or power if you are lifting low the whole time, making your PH useless, which is another reason it would be best if you do what triton suggested up there ^^^^^^^^ and avoid the PH for now. You still have plenty of time/room to grow and such without using a PH. You aren't at a plateau, no injury stopping you. You just have to keep doing what you are doing since you are still growing.
EDIT: And by injury, joints mainly.
how long do you think i should waite.And do you think i should use fish oil for joints?
I would def use fish oil. Remember all fat isn't bad. Natty PB is great for gaining (I used to mix it in choco shakes... tasted pretty good, but took some mixing to get it to not clump >_>)
I would wait a couple months. Probably until you hit a plateau (should be awhile if you're only at 6 weeks after starting again).

Private Joker, why do you want a 300lb bench?
Having a big bench won't necessarily make you a better fighter. A big bench is based off of technique so make sure you have the technique down before you start stacking the weight on.

the 300lb bench wont make me a better fighter your right its just a personal goal that i would like to reach.
and full metal j is one of my fav movies of all time (=
Work on your technique, shoulder, lat, and tricep strength and you will be able to get that 300lb bench. Just work hard. There are plenty of programs available online or on here that will help you reach your goals.

Technique..........example.... ...with my forearms angled rather than being perpendicular to floor, I literally benched about 25 lbs more. My buddy always benched with his forearms straight up and when I would try it, I felt so weak.....no wonder his bench sucked lol.
No anyway...a lot of benching is technique. I have bigger triceps and pecs than I did when I was benching 300 or more but I could not get that now. I can actually do more with dumbbells now than I could then but that is very different than a legal barbell bench press.
I'm still curious how you are going tp increase your bench 125lbs by not lifting heavy?
in order for you to get an effective workout, you must lift minimum of 60% of 1RM.
and if ur 1rm is 185 then u need to be repping with 111lbs. minimum!
just some advice. if i were you i start with 4 sets. the weight should be hard enough for you not to break proper form and reps should be somthing like 10-10-8-7 or close to that. this will lindicate that the muscle are getting proper amount of resistance in order for them to grow.
getting to 300 is gonna take some time. consistency consistency consistency
