    I weigh 170 right now and bench 120 ten times.
    A month and a half ago, when I first started benching after recovering from my shoulder surgery, I could only bench aroun 70-80 ten times. I'm not doing smaller sets with larger weights right now, since I'm still in the rehab stage, easing back into lifting slowly and carefully.

    My goal is to get my weight up to 185 and my bench up to 250 within a year.
    You say what about my rice?

    I'm a small guy weighing in around 135-140. I rep 130 and max 160.
    Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

    I weigh 150, bench 75. 3 sets of 8-10 reps. I do the military press in the same workout, which is sort of like self-ownage, but whatever.

    I weigh 195lbs and I can rep 245. I am by no means a competitive lifter. I just do it for strength. I suppose I could max a bit higher if I wanted to and I am sure I could rep up more if I increased my protein and supplement intake.

    You mean increase calorie count, and decreasing training frequency?

    I weigh 205-210, and usually bench 12x2 sets of 166lbs. I can bench 200lbs if I'm feeling strong, but I've got some niggling joint injuries that definitely make a difference.

    Is benching really heavy weights going to screw up my joints? I was in a bad car crash a couple of years ago and my shoulders, elbows, knees and wrists are painful when under pressure.

    Also, how much difference do protein bars/shakes make to your strength? I've never taken any supplement, so I don't know if they're worth it.
