Might not be everyone's cup of tea, but this might also serve to be some motivation for y'all.

I used to always work out hard but I never pushed myself like I have been the past 2-3 months and I'm seeing really good results. I'm more ripped and stronger than I've ever been and weigh 25 lbs less than I did a few months ago. I think using Krealkalyn has contributed quite a bit as well.

You put up 10 reps of 300lbs at 165lbs? And this was after just getting into the gym hard again the last 2-3 months?

You basically have world class strength, if you put it up without too much trouble. Being able to rep out 10 at essentially almost double your bodyweight, would put you at an elite level, even at lifting. 300lbs for 10 roughly translates into 400lbs lift for a one rep max. Do you realize how shit strong you have to be to lift 2.5 times your bodyweight? And you make it seem like an easy feat? Why don't you lift professionally?

Ignoring the mocking tone - I've been lifting consistently for years, I said I hadn't pushed myself as hard as I had been in the gym the last 2-3 months. I'd been regularly benching 240-250 for a while when I was 190+ but never tried anything higher after the weight loss. As for the 10 reps, I didn't say they were all perfect form and "not too much trouble" meaning I didn't feel dead after doing them. Anyway, I put up 300 on the smith machine bench and don't really care about proving it further to a dude on the internet.

A professional lifter...lmao, I'm in medical school; I'd never entertain the thought of such a shit job

I'm a similar frame to that guy but probably taller and bit bulkier.

There was no mocking tone, but clearly you took offense.

No need to dismiss or lower professional lifting. Was just asking why you don't do it considering your strength and somewhat interest if you're keen enough to post progress in this thread.

Eh, then I apologize for coming back at you that hard. 300 lbs - I'd call my max bench press, meaning I can probably do 4-5 with proper technique. I've never tried one rep maximum because I don't trust a spotter enough with such heavy weight but I'd venture to say it's around 310-315 and not much more than that. I haven't tried 300 again since that day but I'm putting up around 3x8 at 250-260 on my chest workout days.

How much do you typically bench, deadlift, and barbell row?

I'm 215lbs at 6'2ish and I'd do similar to you on bench. Maybe 275lbs for 6 reps and 4 sets.
Deadlift is my best lift and I pyramid set up to about 450-500lbs for one rep max depending on the day. Like yesterday, I tried to do 500lbs, which is the most I've ever done, and it just resulted in the bar flexing a little and me getting a headache. Other days I've had where I've lifted it and felt like I could do a little more, but usually stick there because I don't have a belt or straps, and I can't really hold anymore with or without chalk.

Barbell row I haven't done in forever. I do so many other types of rows, but I wouldn't have a clue.

^ Provided you play your sport well enough and take care of your joints/muscles and make sure they don't have too much residual tension, then that shouldn't really be a problem.

I go to the gym too but I am not big at all. This is probably because of my diet as I have to eat more, specially more meat.

Oh ok that makes much more sense now, i thought you were using a regular bench to put that up. I can typically do about 30-40 more lbs on a smith machine bench then on a regular bench
