    Also been gaining weight slowly, but looking fluffier by the day and the strength:bw ratio isn't improving. Was around 174 on the 1st of jan, weighing 181 currently. Help me get to 315 so I can start cutting for the summer

    Been many years since I hit 315lb, max reps I did was for 4. Regarding jumping from 275 to 315, I just focused on increasing my rep range on 275 (managed to get up to 10 reps on that weight). Then made the jump to 315.

    There's no secret in getting from any certain 1RM max to another... depending on your size you may just be very near your maximum strength, although probably not. But once you get near it it can take forever to make gains. I got to a 300 lb. bench by 16 at 185 lb., and didn't get to 315 until 19 at 200 lb. Took until 23 at 215 lb. to get to 340, now I'm 24 and 180 lb. and am back to 315.

    Just bench heavy often, it'll go up.

    Normally I would worry about him quarter repping 385 and claiming that proves "almost 4 plates", but I have a feeling he would crush himself doing that.

    I don't understand your thought process. Programming and progression make all the difference in the world.

    Making the same mistakes more often do little to help you progress. Also HIGHLY skeptical of your Age 16 300 pound bench in the 185 class.

    Bench 4-5 times a week using different variations. Find your sticking points and hammer the chit out of them. In any given week on my programming my two main movements are Bench and Slingshot with Incline, Legs Up, and close grip as my secondary variations. Isolate your shoulders and triceps as well.

    It also took gaining some weight. I'm about 187 right now but I could pretty confidently hit 325/330 if I programmed to peak.

    Used to rep 325 when I was in my early twenties. We would supplement our bench routine a few different ways. Negative reps, load up and have a spotter and go slowly down and assisted up. Pause reps, just as they sound, lower to the chest and touch light enough to be able to pull a piece of paper out from between the bar and chest, pause was for about 2 seconds. Keep tension in the chest and dont relax at anytime for this. And lastly load up the bar to max or above. Unrack it and hold it at the top for a few moments. This helps get through the awkward feeling of the unrack and having a massive amount of weight on the bar.

    Where is anguspeppered? Dude goes around estating in every bench thread while having essentially no chest to speak of, so it’s nice to see him needing to put up or shut up finally.

    Welp it took me 3 years to gain 15 lb. and then 4 more to gain 25 more lb. but I just kept benching heavy often, and it eventually went up. Also OP didn't say what he's been doing or how long, save for his last bench workout at 275.

    I’m just saying there’s no magical program or exercise that gets you to 315 from 275. Find a good PL’ing/strength program even if it’s basic, find your weakest muscles and hammer them, eat a lot and bench a lot.

    Dunno what to tell you bout my bench at 16, I ran Texas method for 3.5 years straight. Didn’t even know it then, just was listening to my weight training coach. Couldn’t squat 225 tho lmao.

    I’m still close with about 10 Bros from that class that could vouch, and could go back to my high school and find my dated signature on the power rack I did it on, if you really want some sort of proof.

    I'm pumped for this. Nothing better than seeing a light bulb click on when you teach people something

    You're going to be repping 315 by summer

    EDIT: If you do any more benching before we talk, text me a video please. Preferably one where I can see your wrist and hand position and not one side on

    Make sure your back is strong as fk, don't be lazy with face pulls and chit. I've already seen your bench vids, your technique seems good.

    Think he may beat you there considering he can rep 280 right now pretty sure.

    Yeah I know, he has the handicap right now so he should win. But I’m going to work my ass off these next several weeks to try to get it

    I think people in general who preach "natty limit" while in their early 20s or late teens honestly don't know what they are talking about.

    While it is true that I dont see many people benching 315, it doesn't mean that nobody reps it easily.

    The long and short of it is you need to put the work in - just SMH at the talk about perms and gear for a weight that is certainly achievable with committed training.

    Switched it up and ate like a motherfcker

    Was doing 5x5 and making good progress but got bored/burnt out from doing the same sh*t over and over again, switched up my sets and reps and continued gains

    If not, try to ask someone at the gym to tape it please. If you pull this off hopefully you'll make some of the "lol no one can natty bench 315" crew shut their mouths for a while. Good luck.
