Default Trying to get serious

Not a real bodybuilder, but defintely trying to do something with my size, I am about 5'9" 5'10" on a good day!. I bench bout 255 easily for about 6 reps, but I have maxed out at 305, and did that twice as of 10.26.05...

so heres some pics, hopefully I will be using this as a personal marker to show if im doing anything right...

I swear tho, those lights at the gym defintely make me look a lot bigger..damn floros...

dont have any full body ones...but maybe soon
-Just trying to get big man-

Flat Bench 1 RPM = 305
GOAL by age 26 = 500
I turn 25 in march 06 :eek:

You look like you got some good size on you from what we can see in those pictures. Can't comment on much because all I can really see is your shoulders and upper chest, but they look good

I see your goal is to put on an extra 200 lbs on your max bench in a little over a year, pretty serious goal. Hope you make it.

400 would atleast be nice!!! but i know how i am, i set high goals, so if i come up short, i bet i got close ya know...

but i seriously would like to start repping 305, right now i bench doing a pyramid usually, starting at 185 X12 then 205, 225, 245, 275, 295, and then try and hit 305, once or twice...

In 2004 i was starting at 125X12 then ending on 275 maybe ona good day, so im doing alright i think...just in the last 4 months i have been serious about lifting and diet and all that...once i start doing cardio!!! which i hate things will turn up

Default try this


I've done this program along with a friend and it works pretty well. It might not get you to 50 lbs in the time it says but I went from 315 for 1 rep. to 315 for 4 reps. in about 7-8 weeks. this was right before I injured my rotator cuff so I couldn't finish the program. my roommate said it increased 45 lbs. but lost about 10 lbs. from his lift after resting a week. this was before he started serious power lifting, so now he knows how to recoup from lifts. it might be different for you.

also read up on Westside power lifting.. that should be where most of your reading comes from if you want to work on increasing major weight on all lifts. I mean, you don't want to be lopsided.
