im currently gaining about 5 pounds every 2-3 weeks on my bench press and am hoping for a 275 bench press (at 150-160lbs) by september, 365 (at 170-180lbs) in about a year and 2 months (june 09). also, i am not taking any supplements and will not. current protein intake is about 220g a day.
so, as i get higher will it slow down to less than 5 lbs per month?
yes most likely, i say after about a month or two you probably wont be able to talk on 5 lbs a month, unless your gaining allot of weight or getting help.
i have three month sprints were i can put on 5-10lbs a month then i decline.
200-300 didnt take long, 300-350 took a little bit of time, now this 350-400 seems like its taking forever.
best thing to tell you for keeping on making progress is stay injury free, that will slow you down the most.
smokinHawk nailed this. Especially that the best thing to tell you is to stay injury free.
