so i've been lifting/ eating seriously since march of 2005, its been about 1.5 years.
from march - june i went on a newbie gain... putting on about 15 lbs. a few months later, i was shoulder pressing 105x2 dumbells, incline dumbelling 125x3.
i've gained weight since then, more bf than muscle i think, so that means i am eating more than maintainence. i've been working out consistently, but i've almost become weaker. At best, i'm staying the same strength.
i now struggle with 100 dumbells for shoulder press and incline dumbells peak at 115 pretty much.
my deadlift has stayed at about 360, or even dropped some.
my lifts are pretty much the same now at 220 lbs as they were at 205 lbs. what gives?
you were overhead pressing 105lbs db's? wow.

You're blazing white hot,anyone ever tell you that? Sometimes i think you have fingers faster then Superman when it comes to posts on WBB forums.
Hot in terms of both speed and... well new hotness- Stash
What does your overall routine look like? Diet? Sleeping patterns? Work?
diet i'll eat as much as possible, try to stay away from very unhealthy foods, but i do eat fast food quite often. I get enough protein each day, most through shakes though.
i'll sleep usually from 11-5am, and then a 2 hr nap sometime during the day.
routine is solid, i keep all rep ranges low for my big lifts, and higher for arms and calves.
i deadlift every week.
i do not squat though since i feel my thighs are big enough, and i have stretch marks on my thighs / glutes.
and yea i was doing 105x3 on overhead press at one point. pushing movements are my strong point.. i probably still could i'm thinking. point is i'm not progressing.
What are your weaknesses?
i would say my weak lifts are bent over rows. my core is never strong enough to be doing the weight i can pull. i can do bent over rows at like 175, but anything else and my lower back is really feelin it.
deadlifts are pretty weak as well. i'm pullin sldl(more or less) at 315x3 and conventional is about 340x3 now too.
squats are weak, at about 285x4 last time i checked, parallel. but like i said my quads are pretty big and i dont want anymore stretch marks

So your bench stalled and you have a weak back and core. Now you know what to train.
also, if i remember correctly, i remember being at about 220 with a smaller belly. about 2 months ago. i'm now at 220 with a bigger belly.
wow thats some really nice shoulder pressing for only a few months training!! im only on 105 x 7 after a year of training.Originally Posted by dtshen
