It was about 3 months. I train twice a week, full body, with maximal weight. Most of my sets are between 3-5 reps, with the last part of the year around 3 reps. With the deadlift, I'd build up to my one rep max every week, and workout only once a week. So the week before New Year's I one repped 285, then on New Year's Eve I did 305.
I had to eat alot, I always took a whey protein supplement afterwards, but that was it. I went from about 145 at the beginning of my training to 150 now. I did accumulate some body fat, which I'll look to burn in the off season. Right now I'm still trying to progress with my one rep maxes so I'm eating extra.
As of right now, my maxes are:
Bench around 150-155
Incline 65lb dumbbells
Shoulder press 50lb dumbbells
I'm taking a deload period right now though, where I do more reps like 4-6 to give my body rest from that training period.
