    Well I have some other health issues that make it hard to be consistent... in the years that I have been lifting I have taken long breaks and sometimes have been forced to stop. I won't go into my health history... lets just say that my doctor has approved me to lift, but sometimes I need to take breaks for a few months...

    It takes time and dedication man...
    keep eating, and keep pushing those weights...

    I started out barley benching 95 x 8...
    Now I can throw up a max of 205...

    100% increase...

    Being tall doesn't help though =-(

    Assuming your doctor approves, eat natty peanut butter sandwiches along with a banana for two of your snacks. Consume steaks, lots of em. Whole milk too. Twice a week do Squats, BP, OHP, Deads, and Rows (2 sets each for 6-10 reps after a good warmup). Add 3 months. Post your stats again in October

    You're welcome.

    Don't do deads twice a week. Once is plenty. Everything else yes.... I guess.

    I thought rows werent a compound movement? That just isolates upper back, right? What is OHP? Is that overhead press? Also, are you suggesting doing all those exercises on the same day, twice a week?

    rows are a compound movement. You use your traps, shoulders and bis directly.
