    well yes and no.....in high school i remember benching w/ 1 plate , i think around 130lbs....finally tried to bench for the first time and with the two 45lb plates i could not even lift it barely off the rest stands.. so i did 1 bench of 25lbs plates and walked away embarrassed,lol. Friend later told me it was probably my lack of technique. I haven't been active in years im just thinking i really do lack the muscle heh i guess the beginning will be hard.

    Yes, the beginning is hard, especially if you have worked out before. Your numbers will be lower than they were before and it will be depressing. You just have to stick with it and get through the slump.

    we all had to start somewhere, some people are just more blessed with a better starting position then others

    just work your ass off and you'll move up quickly

    Dude start up again. You'll get stronger faster, plus newb gains will blow you away and make you want to train more.

    ya i thought i got through my soreness last week ! now 2nd week is here , did upper body and & am sore again. When i get into the mix the soreness should only last typically a day after the workout right? my entire chest all the way around is sore, hurts to even raise my arm up in the air,lol. I don't think im over training, but i think the muscles are definitely in shock

    That's quite an improvement. I've been lifting regularly since Nov 06. I'm lucky if I can get 275x1. I'm exhasuted by the time I get there due to fairly high reps.

    ive worked out before where i would max rep 255 but i stopped roughly like a year ago then picked up again. so it helped that i knew i was able to push the weight. i just lost all physical ability to do it and had to work back to it. Oh, and about the soreness thing, when i started out, i was prob sore for 2-3 days and still worked the chest anyways. train hard! just keep pushing yourself

    also im a fatass at 230 lbs so that prob helped with the high weight. working on dropping the fat.

    Funny when I was younger, early/mid 20's I struggled to lift max 110kg/242lb ... now in my early 30's that's easy weight. I would have thought it was the other way around. I could recover a lot easier, but couldn't lift as much early on.

    So depends on how old you are I say.

    hey, i started off with 25's so don't feel too ashamed. I put 2 years of serious effort which got me up to 280-290 raw max and very close to 400 with a shirt. just have some patience and you'll only get stronger as you train smart.
