    I used to be able to do 5 reps of 200. For max I didn't care much for it but I don't remember ever hitting 250

    I currently do 3 sets of 10 at 135. Will try and go up to 145 soon. My goal is to bench more than my weight (188 currently)

    Don't lift anymore but low-200s. Long arms and 12 year old girl wrists here.

    How's your mental health these days, RRR3? You hittin' them deads, squats and doing cardio as well (cardio is a HUGE antidepressant!)

    I'm happy to see that you took my advice RRR3 to tone up, lower your BMI, and build some muscles.

    My working sets are around 145-155 and I do those for about 5-6 reps. Last time I tried to go for max was about a month ago and I was able to get 185 twice, so my one rep max is probably 195 or so.

    225 is the magic number. That's when you can load the bar with 4 of the big plates (45 pounders). I have never done it, but thats my goal. I have hit 200lbs though. I weigh 180.

    Idek. Probably my bodyweight? I'm weak as **** on the bench.

    I haven't worked out in over a year too.

    Might look into getting a home gym.

    Good to hear that you're keeping your heart healthy, man.

    I don't give you guys enough props--but you, NateJizzle, DonDadda59, highwhey, Draz and some of the other young bucks on here have really compassionate hearts.

    If you inhale your breath and hold tight, arch your back, squeeze your armpits, lats, glutes, and abs as tight as possible, and choke the bar to death as well as imagine pushing yourself away from the bar and spreading the bar apart---I'd think u can add 5 - 10 (or more) to your total! Also, keep in mind that you got to balance pushes with pulls---so be sure to incorporate a lot of rows, chin-ups, pull-ups with more volume to keep your shoulders healthy!

    And depending upon where you are weakest---it if's the low part (then you need to activate/strengthen the chest), if it's the high part/lockout (then you need to strengthen the triceps---dips and close grip bench work).

    What are you studying/reading these days?
