I try and tell them: "guys, you should stop trying to jump from 110lbs to 132 on the bench (they couldn't even handle properly the 110lbs in the first place). use the little ones instead..."

But they just won't listen.

Let's see who'll be laughing by the end of the year

^ You keep doing that. Slow, steady gains will serve you well. In 1-2 years they will be approaching you asking you "what are you taking?"
