225 bench press for ten legit reps.

I can do 3-4 reps with 225 right now- completely unassisted, no spotter, no one's hand touching the bar (except or mine).

I want to do 10 reps like that-...

I didn't think that training did it.

I understand that to an extent.

But I would think that there is a limit to how much water weight you could possibly gain.

Just a range, at typical minimum and maximum amount.

Good job.

Dunno, everybody's different, but for me, increasing the bench press has always been a very slow process. (same with the other big lifts like the squat).

Great feedback. Thanks guys.

I've always been skeptical of studies showing that eggs are a health risk, but I'm not closed minded.
