Is it normal to start training with these shit-tier stats?

Bench 65 lbs
Squat 95 lbs
Curl 20 lbs
OHP 45 lbs
Leg extension 80 lbs

I know I'm a skelly but this shit is fucking embarrassing

No U R

Keep going then.
>>
Yes. How else are those stats going to improve
>>
>>59343547
My goals are

Bench 150
Squat 185
Curl 35
OHP 120

Is this realistic for a 6 month stretch?
>>
>>59343594
I get that, I'm just wondering if being this weak is normal.
>>
>>59343624
yes its normal. if you have never invested into strength your strength is obviously going to be very low. the advantage of this is that if you eat well, get plenty of sleep and train hard your lifts will skyrocket at the start.
>>
>>59343511
bench starts at 135 unless you have a lifting partner than can do more than 135. do some incline dumbell press

Pretty much on par, if anything you're stronger than me when I started around 2 months ago cause I couldn't bench more than 55 and squat more than 70. Current lifts are 85 bench, 120 squat, 60 ohp and 150 dl. Just keep at it and you'll see progress.
>>
What's your height and weight? Those stats look pretty solid for a beginner
>>
>>59343511
are you a girl?
>>
>>59343511
I have big arms and mostly train with 25# dumbbells on curls. That’s after 50-80 pull ups. I could go heavier, but will that help me? No. As long as you don’t rush it, you’ll get strong. Keep workouts and strength max testing separate. Workouts are pain sessions, be absolutely sadistic.

Should be able to get those numbers in 3-4 months if you add 5lbs to every lift once a week.
>>
>>59343511
How many years of lifting?
>>
>>59343511
homphobia has no place on fit anon
>>
>>59343511
>homophobic meme
>65 lb bench

yep, it checks out
>>
>>59344851
to be fair we aren't sure that butt guy is actually gay
>>
>>59344076
bullshit
>>
>>59345001
I add 5lbs to my lifts every week.
>>
>>59345018
Every workout*, so 5-10lbs.
>>
>>59343511
If you're truly skelly mode, you're not gonna be able to progress as fast as you indicate you'd like to later. But you'll go plenty fast. I, and many other skellys at my gym, started with similar metrics.
>>
>>59343511
Yes, you should consider HRT / becoming a femboi.

Caring about what other people think, and letting your ego get in the way.

You answered your own fucking question.

I'm also a skelly and hit 155 for reps within 3 months of lifting. It's not an unrealistic goal by any means.
>>
>>59343605
6 months? Try less than 4. Anyway, you're a total beginner. Worry less about timeframe, more about things you can actually impact like sleep, diet, and consistency.
Also that OHP is disproportionately large compared to the other lifts.
>>
>>59343511
skeleton here too, my stats are even lower OP so it can't be that bad
>>
>>59343511
Nice
