    Bench Pressed 225lbs for 3 reps

    After not working out for about 4 or 5 months I started lifting again. I've been working out for close to 1 month and that is what I benched just now using Olympic free weights.

    His lack of faith was disturbing. The force is not kind to those who do not trust in the Lord God.

    That is also amusing. His faith may have been increased now though.

    Except that I have no fear of people who can't spell biceps.

    not to mention realizing that's weak weight, and furthermore that biceps and benching have little to do with eachother (besides biceps being a secondary muscle on the bench)

    That's weak weight is it? How much can you bench freeweight style? If I were to bench on a machine weightset than I would be pressing about 260 lbs. And using a narrow freeweight bar it would be about 240 lbs.

    The true measurement is the one I gave, Olympic free weights. That's what they use when they measure world records.

    If I can't spell biceps than that is a good thing you morons.

    What 225 lbs is on an Olympic set is 2 45lb plates on both ends. It is a lot of weight. I don't have a spotter. I'll be going for 245lbs in about 4 or 5 weeks.

    Which proves you are a bigger idiot than anyone here can imagine. Anyone who tries maxing out without a spotter is just setting themselves up for injury. BTW, I know a kid who benches around 400 dean, so I wouldn't be too excited. He can only lift with the gym's trainers b/c anyone else would be useless as a spotter. The kid is even in the world's strongest man competitions. He is under 20 as well, and is actually not a porker.

    I'm not taking any steroids, so lets be serious, 225lbs is a lot of weight. My ultimate goal might be 275 or 295 but I sort of doubt I'll reach that weight, even going up 20lbs is very difficult. I don't use a spotter but my smith bench as a catch half way up so if I can't press the weight all the way up I'll throw it onto the catch, or at least try. I don't go for maximum unless I'm confident that I can lift it at least for 2 reps.

    Hate to break it to you dean, this kid isn't on roids either. Keep talking though, it's fun to watch you dig yourself deeper and deeper.

    Hehe, dean, you funny...

    I've got a friend who's a year younger than me, and he can do 350 (last I checked...probably more now)

    And yes, dean, I can do 225

    See, I know Dean from another board (not related to programming) and from that board I happen to know that Dean's idol is the immortal Hulk Hogan. And just like the Hulkster never used steroids, Dean has built his strength (granted 225 ain't much, but..) from clean living, taking his vitamins and saying his prayers.

    I "PEDDIE" the fool...


    or something like that..
