    ok so the quick generic rundown (and yes i know there are many factors so any answer is only a guess-temate etc etc) but any informed opinions would be appreciated since you fuckers know more about this shit than me

    started lifting again in October 06 max bench at the time was 175 (yes i know it's lame and sad, but it is what it is)

    today i did 2 reps with 335 (best and most i've done since college (about 10 years ago)

    I have a bet with a friend that I can do 405 by my next B-Day (feb 08)

    I currently work chest really hard 2 times per week, I know i'm not big by any means in comparisson to many on this board but i figure since many of you are way past where i'm at you may be able to give a guess on if i have a chance to add another 70 pounds to my bench in the months remaining. The newb gains are long gone, i am fighting for every damn pound added to my lifts at this point.

    is twice a week enough for chest, or would adding a day be beneficial you think?

    yes i do other lifts as well but my bet is on the flat bench and due to injuries some of my other lifts are pathetic and embarassing to say how low weight i can do lol.

    Gain some body weight and it'll probably happen.

    I am not a fan of lifting "chest" twice per week. With most of the successful guys, if they bench more than once per week the second time is speed work only.

    typical week for chest is a low rep high weight day
