Keep going then.
Yes. How else are those stats going to improve
>>59343547My goals areBench 150Squat 185Curl 35OHP 120Is this realistic for a 6 month stretch?
>>59343594I get that, I'm just wondering if being this weak is normal.
>>59343624yes 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.
>>59343511bench starts at 135 unless you have a lifting partner than can do more than 135. do some incline dumbell press
>>59343511>Is it normal to start training with these shit-tier stats?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
>>59343511are you a girl?
>>59343511I 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.
>>59343605Should be able to get those numbers in 3-4 months if you add 5lbs to every lift once a week.
>>59343511How many years of lifting?
>>59343511homphobia has no place on fit anon
>>59343511>homophobic meme>65 lb benchyep, it checks out
>>59344851to be fair we aren't sure that butt guy is actually gay
>>59345001I add 5lbs to my lifts every week.
>>59345018Every workout*, so 5-10lbs.
>>59343511If 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.
>>59343511Yes, you should consider HRT / becoming a femboi.
>>59343511>I know I'm a skelly but this shit is fucking embarrassingCaring about what other people think, and letting your ego get in the way. NGMI
>>59343511>I know I'm a skellyYou answered your own fucking question.
>>59345001I'm also a skelly and hit 155 for reps within 3 months of lifting. It's not an unrealistic goal by any means.
>>593436056 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.
>>59343511skeleton here too, my stats are even lower OP so it can't be that bad
