    Just wanted to see how long it took most people to rep out 225, it's always been a goal of mine and 1 1/2 years later i'm not even close to it.

    Rep? I can get it twice, so I don't know if that counts as "repping" it, but I've been working out on and off for like 4 or 5 years. I've been seriously at this like a year.

    took me about 8 months to get it once, and about a year to be able to do 5 reps.

    when i started i couldn't do the 45's. in fact i was in my basement using some plates that weighed 33 lbs each (don't ask me why, they were in kilograms or something. still olympic size bar). but anyways, i could do 225 once less than a year later, probably like 8 months. now i can do it 6-8 times =D I don't know how much higher i'm going to be able to go though, I only weigh 165 lbs.

    it's some good shit. Personally the gains were 10x better than this prop/deca, but I am looking a helluva lot leaner
