    around a year and a half even though that is just for the squat. Dunno where my deadlift is and there is no way that I can bench that much

    Bench took a year or so, squatting took me a couple years, and I was deadlifting close to 3 times my body weight about 6 months after starting to deadlift (I weigh more now, and cant dl as much though?!?!)

    bench still isn't there, I could deadlift 2xBW in 2-3 months of starting deadlifting at 165 lbs...squat was close at 295 but not quite in the same time.

    I was able to double my weight and then some in squat after about two years. Weighed in at 200lbs and squat 455

    I was able to double my weight and then some in Deadlift after about a year and a half. Weighed in at 200lbs and D/L'ed 550 (with trap deadlift bar though, not sure about the real way though, either way, I am positive I would have doubled it).

    I was able to barely double my weight in bench after about 2 1/2 years. Weighed 198lbs at the time and put up 405lbs on bench. Since then I put up 415lbs but at the time weighed 212lbs..... but now I am down to about 204lbs now so I think I am back to doubling my weight again... Unfortunately, I may never know because of how fucked up my wrists are from powerlifting with bench for a couple of years with that much weight. Now I try and keep everything under 325 to make the chance of an injury lower.

    It took me about 3 months to bench my body weight

    Now that i've cut, I weight 157lbs and can bench 165lbs, so i'm slowly getting there, but 1-2 years for 1.5bw, that would be pretty intense

    The hard part about it is that you just can't do bench everyday and expect it to make great gains, you have to do all sorts of other stuff to build other muscles if you want to make good gains at benching

    I have a friend who does nothing but bench and curls, and he wonders why he's so slow in bringing up his bench numbers
