    I actually started training about a year and a half ago....

    back then i was 5' 8" - 145lbs
    bench - 135(bar)/55(db) for 8reps/3sets
    squat - 235 for 3reps/1set

    ive been hitting the weight 3 days a week and been watching my caloric/protein intake, didnt take any supllements though but made sure i had at least 3000cals a day

    as of today im 150lbs
    bench - 215(bar)/85(db) for 8reps/3sets
    squat - 295 for 3reps/1set


    i dont feel any fatter or leaner, i look about the same except for lil more definition in the shoulders... do i need more time? more protein?

    try eating atleast 4000 calories

    and most of that ability to lift more weight is probably mental

    The weight will come, give it time. Just keep at it and progressively increase your PR's. It's only natural that your body will adjust accordingly to the weight that you put up.
