Is this a decent strength gain?

  1. Question Is this a decent strength gain?


    I'm 16 yrs old: 6ft 75kg.

    I have no protein shakes, no supplements. I have no structured diet, just pretty much what ever is in the house and basically 3 meals a day.

    I have no diet not cause im lazy. It's just because I dont really have the money to keep up with a proper diet but i mainly eat healthy food.

    I only have access to a bench press, free weights and a power tower.

    Start of month:

    Flat bench: 55kg 3/884
    Dips: 3/874
    Push ups: 3x5(after exhausting workout)
    Leg extensions: 40kg 3x10

    End of month:

    Flat bench: 55kg 3/888
    Dips: 3/888
    Push ups: 3x7(after exhausting workout)
    Leg extensions: 52.5kg 3x10

    Feedback would be appreciated on whether these strength gains are good for the circumstances.

    Flat bench: 55kg 3/884?

    What are you saying here? 55kg weight, 3 sets, 884 reps?

    gotcha, let me take a re-look. Did you mention how far apart this increased occurred? A week? a few days?

    Edit: Yes you did

  5. Your progression seems to be okay, but since you're limited to so few exercises, I'd up my sets from 3 to 4 or 6 sets per exercise.
