    It took me a year of training. I wasn't training optimally though and my diet was as good as it should have been.

    However long it takes you.. there's no set time really. Some people reach it faster, others slower. I reached it after about 4 months of lifting, but I had a semi-decent strength base to start with.

    I definitely noticed gains when I started benching in the < 5 rep range. While benching in the 8-12 rep range, I didn't see too much strength progress.

    Took me about 8-9 months, but that was without paying attention to what/how much I was eating nor following a proper routine.

    If you start off with a good diet and routine then it should take around 6 months.

    There are too many variables to give a set time. Some dudes are naturally strong and don't even lift and can put up 225 for reps just for shets and gigs. Some dude don't have a natural strength foundation, like myself, and it takes a year or so to get to 225. It took me about a year give or take. I noticed once I started hitting 225 for reps my bench somewhat skyrocketed, could have been hormonal changes and a combination of good bulking diets but something happened once I hit 225 I can tell you that. Max is 325 now. Took me a good 3 years plus a few months to get to that point. Not very strong for some, but a mountain considering I started with a 10 lb plate on each side.

    I've always lifted until failure and progressively increased weight weekly, so strength has always been a goal. In terms of reps though I only recently started training bench in 3-5 rep ranges to start with. Before I stuck around 10-12 rep ranges. I know that progressive tension overload is the most important thing and that rep ranges are somewhat irrelevant, but at the same time I disagree. I feel like if I hadn't begun training in lower rep ranges I wouldn't have prepared myself for a max bench lift. At least not one as high as 325. Maybe, maybe not. Could just be in the mind and the heavy lifting helps me prepare for it mentally. I recently began doing negative training with weight slightly heavier than my 1rm. I only do this every now and then but it does seem to help a bit with preparing my nervous system for the heavier weight.

    Probably ~175 now


    So a 50lb gain on your bench at your level could probably be reached in 3 months provided you gain ~10lbs and bench 3-5 times a week



    Again "probably"

    It took me an embarrassingly long amount of time to bench 2 plates, but I'm capable of doing it now. I'm gonna try it for the first time tomorrow, probably 3 reps.

    I've always been more squat/deadlift inclined, so no f**ks given.
