>My lifts are Bench -140x5 Squat - 145x5 and Deadlift 155x5
>Nice dude jumps in and warms up with my max Bench
>Wish I were stronger and curse myself for letting myself go this long without training for strength

I should have some respectable numbers in about a year right?

Be patient. Do things in your own pace to avoid injuries, but don't forget to push yourself.
>>
Eat and sleep well, keep consistent, it will happen sooner then you think
>>
>>35702367
If strength is your goal and you are doing SS or SL with proper diet/rest yes, you will make some very respectable gains in a year.

my max bench is 50 and i had to work to get up there

How the fuck is your bench so high when you can't pick up lmao2pl8 off the floor
>>
Key to progress is to push yourself but to progress slow and steadily. Go all out, test your 1rm every other week and you'll burn out/injure yourself in short order.

Any hobby takes time bro, you don't pick up a guitar and play like Jimi after a few weeks just the same as you won't pick up a dumbbell and look like Arnold after 3 months training.

> 12months, you can make good progress

> 24 months, a good 30ish pounds lean muscle gain if you did it right, good progress

> 3 + years steady consistent training = walk in any gym and get respect

If you eat well, follow a good program and actually go to the gym without skipping then you will surpass pretty much everyone in a commercial gym in 6-8 months with the possible exception of bench (since even in commercial gyms you still can get the rare 3 pl8 bencher).

The important things you have to understand though is progressive overload is best so increasing your squat by 10kgs every session other than maybe first 2-3rd is retarded and will halt your progress.
Your bench will never ever reach good numbers unless you bulk a decent amount and also microload.

I started lifting last Feb, with my squats/dead/ohp/bench being 95/105/65/65 for a orm. Right now my orm's are 315/385/240/160 respectively. Just keep lifting and maintain a good diet and you can make gains too

>I should have some respectable numbers in about a year right?
By normie standards, yes. Absolutely. If this is the motivation you want, you got it.

>>35703593
You OHP 2 pl8 and bench less than 1.5pl8 ? The fuck?
>>
>>35703602
Oh shit I just realised my mistake. I meant a 240 bench and a 160 ohp. That'd be done majorly strange shit if it was the other way around.
>>
>>35702367
Impressive bench for someone with such weak squats and deadlift.
>>
>>35702367
you'll be fine OP, I started out with a 34lb bench and a 200lb diddy
