    new 5RM of 205 on the flat bench. I struggled on the last rep but got it up with no help. I'm fucking psyched. about 6 months ago my max was 95lbs.
    also, I full squatted 265 yesterday :bowdown:

    to add on the great day, while I was on the eclipital, a gym regular hottie commented on big I was getting and we conversed a while until I left. :coold:

    edit: checked on the scale before I started and I weighed in at 172

    good work.. i did 205x5 just a few months ago, and now i'm at 235x5

    keep it up, you'll keep getting higher (although it'll be a lot slower than what you're used to)

    yeah, I know. my goal from when I started is 225 x 2 by August, slowly getting up there.
    I started out weighing 128lbs, read (and searched) a few threads in here and the archives. it feels good not being skinny and eating healthier :coold:

    I don't have any before pics, but my build was similiar to biawokauns 128lb pic, though he had bigger arms.

    I'll work on the after pics, just need to borrow my bro's camera :hsugh:

    getting stronger is nice but having a hottie comment on your size increase is better...

    here are my after pics. sorry I can't provide with before shots, but the closest body style when I started (128lbs) is Biawokauns's log pictures of 128.5lbs (he had bigger arms though) found here: http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=2136147


    this was taken ~ 10 minutes ago :hs:
