i'm doing flat bench press rigjt now (im a newbie)..
im a 24 yr old guy about 145 lbs and 5'10...
im lifting a total of 35lbs..
my question is im not feeling pain in my chest, is it normal?? will i achieve results?? or am i doing something wrong??
whats happening to me??
im doing a 12x10 3 times a week....
Is this a serious post?
ETA: 12 sets of ten seems like overkill. Try 3 sets of ten with heavier weight.

as you can see...sir im a 145lbs guy meaning im thin....
you are right i as of now..thats all i can push..i think i can push for 40lbs...
thats why im doing 12 sets of 10 is that wrong??..
how heavy do u suggest?...
ETA: Where's your hand placement on the bar when you bench? If your chest doesn't get sore but your triceps do. Maybe your hands are to close together.

and how many times should i do it a week??? im thinking of monday and thurs
is that good??
tnx for the patience of helping a newbie like me ....
then my time in weight lifting will more or less 30 mins..
im juz targeting chest and biceps...that seems a rather fast excercise...
i see....u really helped a lot tnx sir....
Do you have a gym? Look into starting strength routine. You will make gains really fast on this routine...get you a good foudation going. You need food, gym time, and rest to grow. Eat, eat, and eat if you want to get strong and grow.
i just have some dumbbell and barbell at home.....i cannot do incline/decline only flat bench...is that enough??
D-RAS03 said 3x10 bench press..but i think i can do more..should i do more or should i stick to that routine??...
my triceps are not hurt yet...
i usuaully stop when they hurt and cannot carry the barbell..
tnx for the advices....
btw like i said im a 5'10 145lbs guy how much weight should i carry??
also i hear NITREAN is a good supplement but i cannot afford it
can dynamatize tablets work?

If you are doing 10 reps, the weight should be heavy enough to where you can do 10. Not light enough where you can keep going for set after set. Your chest and triceps should be very fatigued after a few sets.
You can do 3x10 with a wide grip, then 3x10 with a close grip.
You need to work the rest of your body as well. Back, legs, shoulders. Your body will grow so much faster.
You can't ask us how much weight you should use, everyone is different. When I weighed 145 I could bench over 200. You just need to add weight every week, everybody starts somewhere.
Not trying to be a dick, but I don't understand what you're doing. The name of the game is weight! Don't do too much and get stuck under the bar unless you have a spotter, but 35lbs? There's absolutely no point in bench pressing 35lbs, even for 12 sets of 10 or whatever.
Sorry, but I don't think you're listening to what everyone has been telling you. Bako said you need to work back, shoulders and legs, and he's right. You're not going to get anywhere just bench pressing. Find a good weight program, do it, and stick with it. I'd be glad to direct you to a few great starter programs, as would the other guys.
i did what u said. im now lifting 50lbs....
you see im an asian...and we asian are not gifted to carry heavy load that much (100lbs?...but i dont think all asians are like me)
meat_head can you direct me to starter programs...appreciated so much ....tnx
athletic training will do...tnx
Everyone is entitled the their own opinion, but no one is entitled to their own facts.
"Asians," "Whites," "Blacks," "Hispanics," ect...can all pile on muscle in the same way using a proper routine and nutrition. Group-level genetic differences are vastly smaller than individual-level characteristics. That is to say that you can find, for example, two White people that are more genetically different than a White person and an Asian, or an Asian and an African. The reason you don't find many Asian bodybuilders in national competitions can be explained by cultural influences, not genetic.

you are right tmor6....
me and many fellow weight lifters here in our coutry start with a 30-40lbs. and in people here in this forum atleast 16 yrs. old advice to start with if I'm not mistaken as heavy as 90-100lbs. we consider it a beast...hahahhaa (compliment)...
but everyone can lift as much as anyone if they want to...
just for the sake of argument..but hehehe I ain't racist....sorry for those offended..
now can anyone tell me some starter programs...I don't wanna be hulk type build, just athletic build..
I almost doubled the lbs. I'm benching but still I don't feel the soreness in my chest, feeling the soreness means I'm doing right in my bench press ryt..? I'm now benching 50lbs. of 5x10 but I don't feel the soreness after a day off (I will feel it during day off right?)
btw I have done the advice of full body workout, I just want to say that I only do flat Bench press, I can't do incline/decline because I'm doing it just at home ^^,) we only have flat bench press...tnx
