Was suggested this by a few people. I am definitely looking into it, once my current workout program is up.

How much do you weigh? Pictures and videos online really don't do justice. I noticed they make you appear smaller than you really are

I did p90x ab ripper X and kenpo karate before I started at the gym. I still see people doing the ab excercises on the mats.

New PR clean and OHP 160 lbs @ 185. Getting closer to bodyweight press

Wow appreciate the compliment.

I'm actually only 155-160. I do get mistaken for heavier, but it doesn't look like I lift when I'm in a t-shirt

But seriously, who are you?

Lifted for 3 years, then got out of it and haven't been to a gym in 9 (I've stayed active with sports a couple times a week, and work though).
Past PRs: @155
B 255
DL 405
Sq 345

Now I'm 165 and after first week back to lifting am at
B 225
DL 335
Squat 225

Surprised my squat took such a hit (as well as muscular endurance in general), hoping to make some good progress in the next couple months.

benching two plates is equivalent to how much dumbbell bench press? Like 110 pound dumbbells?

I was surprised by it too. I thought my bench would suck but my deads and squats would still be ok (fairly physical job). Been away so long that the hardest part right now is just getting back into the feeling that going to the gym is fun.
(yes to 9 years)

Dumbells and bar benching don't equate. Some guys are beast with bar and not so good with db and vise versa.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

You're probably under recovering (not eating enough) or your training is not hard enough to stimulate gains.

How much are u eating and what lifting program are you following?

Just put more weight on and grind it out. Even if it's 2.5lbs per side. You should be striving to do more weight or more reps every workout.

When i started at the gym that was my exact bench as well.. a quarter a side and barely 6 reps lol.. Thats why i am so pumped that I am finally at 2 plates a side as my max..

I progressed by pushing myself to do more weight each week even if it was 2.5 pounds a week.. I eventually wasnt able to do the weight at all and what really helped me was my spotter.. I would push and fucking push until I was about to die and rip as much fiber as possible until my spotter finally helped right at the end to get it up.. Do that a few times through your workout and your body will adapt given the right diet..

from my own personal experience, drop the ego and focus on form and rep PRs.

some respond really fast to resistance training, while some take a while longer to respond, it's all about consistency which also means frequency.

There are some days when I'll drop the weight to a plate or two plates for squats because my hip hurts.

Just stick to the weight you have now, or even drop the weight to improve form. There are many other ways to measure gains in strength, and the amount of weight you have on the bar, is just one parameter amongst many.

If you can do the same weight as you can right now, but faster and with greater control, then you have gotten stronger. If you can do the same weight as you can right now, but with greater form and for more reps, then you have also gotten stronger. You catch my drift?

Another way is to drop weight, and focus on hypertrophy. a bigger muscle = a stronger muscle.

Side note:
Looking for a cheap gym in burnaby vancouver area that has dumbbells going up to 150lbs. I wanna start dumbbell benching heavy again..
