Basically when i started out at 15yrs old for 5months and got great gains goin from 10.5stone ( 14%bf to 13stone back to 11.3/4 stone 7-8% bf then to 14stone then got injured for about 8months.
This is me now 3 months back into heavy training i am 176lb and benching and deadlifting the same as when i was 198lb (14stone) Is this normal?

Sam - lookin' good mate. Are you asking if it's normal that your lighter yet just as strong?

your post is very confusing

it is very normal to be just as strong as your heavier self.

i cant explain lol
to cut a long story short i have got it back very quickly from losing all my gains which i am pretty hyped about. It had been 8-9 months so i thought i wouldnt get any of it back.
you guys are pretty patient because my posts have been stupid.

yeah bro its totally normal. I took off 2 months from lifting and came back and set a few PR's within 3 weeks, at a lighter body weight.

My workout bench weight is up 15lbs compared to before.

BTW your looking pretty ****ing good for you age and weight. impressive.
