Firstly: Stop laughing.
I've been training off-and-on since late January. At that time, my bench was 100 lbs. Now, I'm stuck at 135 x 5. This is incredibly weak, especially considering that I weigh 145 lbs.
I began Rippetoe's back in July, and haven't seen gains anywhere except for in my squats. (I started at 135 lbs, and now I'm up to 255 lbs.) Oh, and, by the way, I haven't really gained any weight during that time. I *think* I was 135 lbs at the start, but I can't be sure. Everyone tells me that I look bigger, but I can't see the difference. At one point, I was up to 155 lbs, but I ate so much then! I'd eat a small meal every two to three hours, and in betweens meals, fruits and healthy snacks (e.g., granola bars).
Anyway, what's the matter with me? Why does my squat continue to go up, but my bench stand still?
By the way, it is my goal to get up to 180 lbs with single-digit body fat. Is this a realistic goal for someone with my stats?
