Ok lads, take into account that i'm a 6 foot 1 and half meso-ectomorph when advising or commenting on me, yeah?
I started working out again about 6 weeks ago at a crap gym in uni. When I started out I weighed in at an average 12 and a half stone (bout 177lbs) I have sinced stepped it up a level from that first week and weigh in at an astonishing and ripped 190lbs. Also take into account that I hail from LONDON, ENGLAND where not everybody is as big as me, unlike the states. So while it may seem small to most of you Americans/Canadians, i'm considered to be MASSIVE in my country.
Ok, I feel like i've progressed a lot so i'll shall with you lot, innit.
Flat Benchpress: I started out by bench pressing 60 kgs (132lbs). This was my starting point. It may seem like a lot to start with, but I do quite a lot of press ups every now and again. So it wasn't until the 4th week of my gym membership where I progressed to being able to do 5 sets of 70kgs bench press (154lbs). Since then, I decided to step it up a level and go for 80kgs! But I can only do that about 6 times, to be honest. It's quite heavy for me to lift, and I need a spotter when I get to the 4th rep, but don't you guys still think that's quite a progression.
Leg curls (quadriceps workload) I can leg curl (machine) about 200lbs, lads.
Back/Lats: I can pull on the pulldown machine 150kg
Ok, lads, what do you think?
