New personal best of 440 lbs on bench press, which is 5 lbs higher than I got last week. I'm thinking about shooting straight from 405 to 450 the next time I attempt a max. I'll probably try 450 again in two weeks.Former Marine, UT-BSN, NSCA-CPT, NASM-CPT, CSCS

Sorry bro, been pulling some extra hours at the job and in the gym. I just went 13 days pulling 12-14 hr shifts and worked out every day as well. I'm currently sitting at 235lbs and hit 460lbs on bench, 640lb on deadlift and 575lb on box squats. I've managed to maintain a 2 mile run in under 13 minutes as well. I'd like to continue a clean bulk up to about 245lbs, reach 500lbs on bench, 675lbs on deadlift, and 600lbs on box squats, but as fatigued as I am feeling I doubt that it's going to happen. I really feel like I am closing up on my natural genetic limit. I'm comfortable at my current weight, but I feel the best at around 210-220lbs. I'm going to give it all I got this year though in a bulk without getting too high in bodyfat%, just to see what type of lifts I can hit. We'll see how it goes.Former Marine, UT-BSN, NSCA-CPT, NASM-CPT, CSCS

That's awesome progress, man. You've been killing it.
How old are you again? I caught that you've been exercising in some form or another since 15 but I have no way to put that into perspective.

I'm 29 years old. Yeah, I've been training since I was about 15. My dad bought me a bench, a bar and some weights for my 14th birthday and I started consistently training when I was 15. My dad hired a personal trainer to teach me for about six months when I was in high school for football and I ended up getting more addicted to the idea of getting stronger than I did winning football games. When I graduated high school my bench was in the 300's and my squat was closing up 500, but I didn't really start hitting high numbers until I joined the Marines and basically became obsessed with training. I wanted to fit what people thought "a marine" should look like. My older brother got me into lifting at a young age.
As of right now I have cut some weight and lost some strength, but I'm very lean like I to be. I checked all of my stats two weeks ago and I was 6'0" 225 lbs, 8% bodyfat. My bench is 440 lbs, squat is 545 lbs, deadlift is 625 lbs and I can perform 5 pullups with a 70 lb dumbell and my two mile run is 12 minutes and 11 seconds. I feel way more comfortable when I'm around 220-230 than I do when I'm over 240. I just have way more energy and I'm way faster and more agile.
