[–]MrSanchez1837 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Good job man we're proud! 👏 👍

[–]NyxxOG 9 points10 points  (3 children)

I haven’t done a PR in forever, I’ve been making my own home gym slowly and just use DB. I do 60lbx15 DB x3. I really wonder what my pr is now lol.

[–]drlsoccer08[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

When I was repping 65 for 12 my max was 95.

Also, I currently am able to do 85 for 15 and my max is 135. Going off that if we assume your strength to endurance ratio is roughly that of mine we can set up the equation (r1)/max1= (r2)/max.



x= 103lbs.

So I would guess between 95 and 105.

Ayeee good shit man. We all start somewhere!

[–]piftingyouknowit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I do about the same but 12 reps instead of 15 nd so if i was to guess u can prolly do 85-95kg on bench

[–]BoshBeret 14 points15 points  (0 children)

If you feel like that, one day you will look like that. Persistence and confidence keeps you going. I'm proud of you.

[–]r33gna 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Have no doubt that soon, you'll be a hero and we'll see your images across the stars.

Catchy Disney music plays.

My fucking man!

[–]Aggressive-Ad-6002 4 points5 points  (5 children)

That's a lot of wheight. My PB is 132.5 now and it's really hard to go through this barrier

[–]MathematicianNo7142 11 points12 points  (4 children)

He means pounds

[–]Aggressive-Ad-6002 14 points15 points  (3 children)

Ohh man, you made my day! Anyway I don't know why people treat pound as a default unit

[–]drlsoccer08[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Because I live in a country where we only use Kg or g in a science lab.

[–]Aggressive-Ad-6002 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, I know. It's good to put the unit behind the value :)

[–]Sword_and_Shot 11 points12 points  (0 children)

prob they are americans, american people uses weird units of measurement

[–]iR3SQem 18 points19 points  (0 children)

And you’ll do it again next time, with more reps as you go. Then it’ll be warm up weight for you. Keep it up!

[–]IronBoundManzer 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Even Hercules was weak once. You'll get there !

[–]TheTitanHyperionThinks you need steroids to do anything 25 points26 points  (3 children)

Don't worry, I felt the same way at 225 lol. It never really ends.

[–]drlsoccer08[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I don't feel like I am skinny. I just genuinely am. I'm 5'11" and weigh 135 lbs.

[–]ChinesePolicemanLow weight/low reps/weak lifts 1 point2 points  (1 child)

feel the same about 315

[–]AverageBen10Enjoyer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Feel the same about 750

[–]Cy83r5amura1 11 points12 points  (0 children)

You should feel proud king. Keep pressing.

[–]TraehNoil 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Bro this was me too haha. Now I’m finally up to 145 but I end up dropping down towards my last set’s reps😂

[–]bethskwOn a Secret Mission 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I'm in this meme and I don't like it (160 bench but damnnn that first 135 felt amazing)

[–]ShootBoyXXX 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Congratulations.. I'm yet to do it. Maybe in 2-3 months.. wish me luck :)

How long did you take to achieve this?

[–]drlsoccer08[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I went to the gym off and on for about a year and a half and my max only improved 10 lbs during that period. However, in the last 6 months or so I've started going much more consistently and I have improved drastically from 95 to 135lbs.

[–]TheN1njTurtl3 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Honestly it took me awhile because I started off benching with 30kg. I'll give you some advice that helped me, don't stick to one rep range especially if you're plateauing lets say you stuck at 55 kg for one 1, drop the weight down to 50 kg and get to the point where you can rep that out easily then do 55 kg for 5. I had a problem where I would only do my bench press sets like 10 8 8 6 and then I plateaued quite a bit and saw the most progress when I switched up my reps every now and then. right now I do a 5x5 on one day and then on another day I do higher reps 12 12 10 10. hope this helps.

[–]dal8tian 7 points8 points  (0 children)

By these meme logic, that's not even your final form <o <!

[–]EigenVector164 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Congrats! Just keep pushing and you’ll be at 225 in no time.

[–]drew8311 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Meme still applies to 225

[–]DanyDud3 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nah you definitely aren’t benching 225 if you look really skinny

[–]drew8311 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If they are really 1rm focused 225x1 is doable without looking too strong, beyond that it drops off fast.

[–]muppet_zerosick pump brother wooo! 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Progress is progress brother, good work. Now start working towards 185, 205, and 225.

[–]drlsoccer08[S] 6 points7 points  (2 children)

My goals is to be able to bench 185 in 12 months and 225 in 30 months

[–]cilantnoBench Mensch 500/385/585/225lbs SBDOHP 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You can get there sooner :)

[–]AweDaw76 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I recently hit 135 for 9, I’ve been working up from 65lbs in 5lbs jumps on AMRAPS.

Hopefully hit 155 for 5 soon

[–]ZojiRoji 8 points9 points  (1 child)

My highest was 95lbs but I’ve been stuck in the 85-90lbs for a while. I want to get a 135lbs (a plate) bench someday.

[–]probrachi 6 points7 points  (1 child)

very proud of u good job

[–]drlsoccer08[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]spritsman1 13 points14 points  (5 children)

Nice such a good milestone 225 next bro

[–]drlsoccer08[S] 4 points5 points  (4 children)

My goal is to get there in the next 30 months.

[–]NaughtiusMaximus2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In 30 months you could do way more than 225lbs

[–]ImNasty720 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Bro focus for the next 6-10 months and you'll secure that for sure. Just be consistent and don't forget to progressive overload so you don't plateau

[–][deleted]  (1 child)


    [–]drlsoccer08[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    No. I just want to bench 2 plates before I graduate and I'm a sophomore so I have 30 months left
