what were your stats at the beginning. we're you able to progress? e: how often a week do you workout these musclegroups? 2 sets/ 5 reps is probably not enough

I dont know how much i actually could do but i started with 30kg on all those 3 excercises. 40kg was hard on bench like a month ago and now i can do 45.

Ye, don't listen to them. I weigh like 82kg but I lifted lots of weights, so I am in good shape, if you are 80+kg at 185 cm and you don't have lots of muscle you will be really flabby.
2020-10-28 21:01
with average muscle size you need to be at least 85kg, unless you're lean as fuck with 2% fat

Where do you get these numbers? You have to be very muscular at 85kg to be lean if you are 185cm

I'm an ex rugby player. So started heavier than you because Genetics. Those are good improvements. Make sure you keep good form when you deadlift. Don't increase weight in DL unless your form can handle it. You don't always need to increase weight btw, try adding slower contractions or pauses at the base of lifts (bench). Same for DL applies for squat. Include slower contractions But just staying motivated when you inevitably plateau is my best advice FYI 194cm 105kg B - 120 kg DL - 220 kg Squat - 140 (Bad Knees limits me)

+1, good form is always important to avoid injury. You can still get injured with good form tho. I went from 80kg bench to 110kg bench in 3 months and my shoulder died. unless OP is trying to get huge legs, he should just squat for endurance, and DL is not good for you, so he shouldn't do it either.

good for first few months you should be able to do 55kg bench in a few months and should really be aiming for 65kg bench at your height and weight for about 5 reps. but that will take some time keep it up m8

i would say if you get to 10 reps on 45 kg you should increase to 50 for one of your middle sets next time just to feel it out. then slowly make that transition

yeah but only if you are very lean already imo... the amount of time it takes to cut is not worth the slight extra gains of bulking. tbh if you cut too fast and wrong youll lose that muscle anyhow. so maybe a small surplus if you already have abs and then slowly increase calories as you gain strength to maintain your increased mass

+1, stick to maintenance or small (5-10%) surpluss and you will gain muscles slowly but steady, just make sure you calculated TDEE correctly.

Just make sure to not over stress and hurt yourself for going for too heavy of a weight, start slow so you can get stronger safer.
2020-10-27 01:07
Why would you need to do 40x10 prior your main working set? Try this: 20x3-4 30x3-4 40x3-4 45x5-6 This progression is good for warmup and improving neuromuscular connection. You do only one working set but do it with the heavy (for your current form of course) weight which you can lift for only 5-6 reps. So 3-4 warmup sets with 3-4 reps in each to don't be exhausted before your working set, and during last working you do your best. And at the next training session you increase weight of working set, not reps.

because if youre taller more of that weight is bones and organs rathar than lean muscle. he should try to bench his body weight or more... but for a 5-8 rep i was saying a relatively achievable goal for now would be 65

More likely you are very fat and lift 2/3 of those numbers. Good numbers still by absolute thinking way.
2020-10-27 00:58
Everyone starts somewhere? Where were you when you began doing anything? That's part of being athletic, you start out and build strength, it's not like you start off benching ridiculous numbers instantly (unless you want to tear your fucking joints out of their sockets and then never do anything like it again).

I've been doing it for 16 years and health is the most important thing for me I'm not very impressed with this performance at the start I squatted up to 120 kg at the age of 16 and weighing 70 kg
2020-10-27 13:55
2 replies
Your legs are legit one of the strongest muscles in your body. But I'd be surprised if you started at that weight instantly, any half-decent trainer/coach would've told you to lower it due to risk of injury. I put on 40 lbs in 1.5 months at one point, just changing diet and working hard. Not fat, but healthy weight. Doesn't mean what I did was somehow indicative of his performance. The thing is, I had already been in shape nearly my whole life, which makes the situation easier. If he's never done anything athletic then he's fine, and telling him to speed up is absolutely the wrong thing.

2020-10-27 00:55
4 replies
Or just work on increasing the reps, rather than weight. 10 is a good number, but I usually started increasing weight once I hit 15 reps (and they're not hard) on a workout. Usually you can drop back down to 11 reps with a higher weight and be ahead of where you were at the 15.
2020-10-27 01:06
I could 10 on 42.5 so i increased to 45?
2020-10-27 01:08
5-8 reps with highet weight is better than full 10 reps with lower weight. If it feels easy and you can do 10 there is no progresion and muscle growth.

Some things I would look for are increasing volume. As a beginner you have a lot of recovery since you aren't moving big weights, so what you can do is instead of doing 2x5-8 reps you can up your set count to 4-6. I don't know how many days a week you're working out but if you want a very basic exercise template i would look for starting strength: athlegan.com/starting-strength I don't think starting strength is a bible you must follow every word like some people preach, but it should be able to double your numbers if not more. Best of luck. Get fucking jacked.

2020-10-27 10:28
At frist its nice that you are doing sth for your health. The progression is quite good for 2 months. At a certain point your progression will slow down. But still go to gym and train, even though you think you dont progress. If you track your records or you use an app, than look up if your feeling is "right". You will see, that you progress, but the time periods for progression will expand. The sad thing is Muscles need time to develop :). One personal story, I needed around 3 years to do my 120kg bench press (3 reps) and i started with 60 or 65kg. ANd also one hint: Me helped a lot to vary the reps in train (for example 1 set with 15, 1 set with 10, 1 set with 8, 1 set with 6 repition, if your plan is muscle hypertrophy. If you want to go for strength 5x5 is a quite nice train system.) Good job and continue working :)!

45 kg bench but still 55 kg squat? You either got a great bench or a bad squat.
2020-10-27 10:57
Not trying to take anything away from you or anything, but a friend of mine started training with me exactly a month ago and he's already lifting a bit heavier than you. I think you're not training hard enough, 2 sets of those exercises are not enough, that's not even maintenance level of training. You should probably look into this reddit.com/r/weightroom/comments/6674a4/.. and adjust your training plan to get better results

some ppl tear their muscle tissues already with 30kg bench press 3 sets 10 reps. some need 120kg to tear their tissues and thats what makes the muscle grow in the end.
2020-10-27 11:39
1 reply
You do have a point but you're not explaining it correctly. Yes muscle growth is linked to training volume independently on the weight you can lift, and you should lift accordingly to your capabilities, but in the end it's more related to training volume (which is what I linked) than to the max weight you can lift. But he's for sure not even training close to what he should if he's looking for decent results.

you don't have to be on the gym for 2 hours. Around 1.5h at max is fine if you do abs, if not 1h max is best. Just take a set or two from any of those other exercises each day and put them into bench, squat and deadlift. You'll probably see more progress, seeing how you care about the stats on those lifts.

I mean I don't even bench with the bar so I might be wrong with 12. But I find 12 the right number for me atleast with dumbell bench. I sweat doing 12 with 26kg if I did 5 reps I think I could do 30kg easy so it's not really how I'd do it. Squatting imo 10 is good to change weights.

2020-10-27 11:26
Hard to suggest anything without more details, maybe talk with some people in the gym/coach. I'd personally do 8+ reps when doing only 2 sets. Otherwise 3 sets. But yeah, as long as it works for you. It doesn't really matter too much. Keep on going my friend. The earlier you start the better. Most important thing imo is consistency and listening to your body + form. It's ok to skip a day when not feeling well or having pain, but once you have the rhythm of working out 2-3 times a week the fun really starts. I even workout 2 a.m. cause I don't feel good mentally when skipping. Also do some warmup. I used to get pain in my elbow and take more rest days, but it always came back. Since I warm up 5minutes with arm swings it's all gone. Bandage for elbow is also pretty good. Just keep on going. And take some pictures every couple of month to see your transformation. When you see your gains after 1 year it will be really big difference and good feeling. :) Depending on your nutrition you can consider getting some whey. I eat very little and my protein intake is pretty low. Without whey, I'd never see gains. Was honestly a gamechanger.
2020-10-27 11:34
this why u should never ask on the internet for validation or confirmation. most people just say its bad progress and will lower ur confidence. u better just build ur own opinion as long u have developed a fire to change and go constantly to the gym. this is already a step to a better you

follow the SS routine imo. It gets you into the rhythm of working out and u see results fairly quickly. Increment 2.5kgs every workout (except deadlift, increment by 5kgs). I did it for 2-3 months, started at 40 kgs squats/deadlifts and got up to 85 kgs squat 5x5 and 95 deadlift 5x1. maxed out my diddys and squats at 120 kgs and 100 kgs respectively after those two-three months. My bench is terrible tho, I've always had strong legs but a weak ass upper body.

as long as ur making progressions, and u r feelingn gud Does not matter how much u r benching Keep up the work bro

more sets, more reps, less weight
2020-10-27 14:42
Bench more, squat more and you'll get bigger numbers and dont do the high rep bullshit, low reps are way better if you want to increase your strength

yeah I wasnt shittalking you. I started at 183 60kg and I could probably only do the bar, not sure as I only used machines at the start. Ive been working out for close to 2 years now and honestly its one of the best things you can do for yourself, helps you in so many aspects of life. Keep at it :)

Wow squat 55, I used to do 40kg squat but I can't really go to gym now.
2020-10-28 06:21
I started in last december (after not being able to do any physical work for 4 years), started slowly, machines and easier body weight exercises. I've been doing these main gym exercises for 3 months now. Stats: (175cm 65kg) Bench: 35kg 8-10x, 40kg 5-6x - blood pressure problems so I'ts been very hard to go up from these numbers, I should start doing push-ups aswell. Deadlift: 60-65kg 6-8x Squat: 50kg 8x, 55kg 5x. I am doing ass to grass style, I have great movement and also been improving more compared to bench and deadlift. You should'nt really care about those numbers man, everyone is different.

drop sets are not ideal for beginners also he gets enough stimulus from basic exercises
2020-10-28 21:16

5 rep is a bit to few and 3 sets is better i guess (trained for a bit myself but my brother for real got into it) so i guess 3 sets with 8 reps and a bit less weight would mbe more healthy
2020-10-28 22:39
Keep grinding dude, don't give a fuck about what people say. I do recommend sticking with a lower rep range. I usually stick with 4-8 reps on the main compound movement exercises
