I'll tell you something else. For the first 3 years of my training life I had no more than a 220lbs Bench max. Nothing I did was enough to raise it higher than that, and often it would fall down to 200lbs. That was 3 consistent years of training too, and I actually competed once or twice in that period.

Last year I did 220lbs as a back off set of 18 (with no supportive gear), as well as a max effort with 340lbs. I've Benched over 400lbs with support also. Your early efforts are no indication other than to show that you have the tenacity to stick with it.
