    Well you've been lifting for longer than me so possibly you already know more than me :-)

    First of all, I would say 185 pounds (greater than your own body weight) for 12 reps is a good achievement...

    Personally I would say the first image is too low - not far off flat in fact.

    The second image looks more reasonable. I don't think too high, although you could try up one more notch, it's...

    So... the OP is actually benching 45kg for what, 12 reps.

    Whilst not brilliant, that's probably not too bad for a 145 pound manlet that's fairly new to lifting.

    Off topic, but this reminds me of the first time I was shown a vertical leg press by the owner of a local gym.

    "What happens if you can't complete the rep?" asked my workout buddy.

    500 cals really isn't that much, just eat a handful of nuts before and after work (or during) or some peanut butter.

    Decide which days you're going to work out, and what time, and then stick to that.

    I think what's helped me is having a spotter, so when I reach failure I do a couple more reps with their help. Next time I'll still use a spotter but aim for one extra rep on my own. Getting a good...
