    anyone hit 225 bench way before 3/4 squats/deadlifts?

    Been lifting seriously for about 3 months and just hit 225 bench last week for a 1 rep max. My current max dead lift is at 270 and so is my squat (ATG) of both which I can do about 3 reps each of. I used to do a lot of push ups/planks as a kid so that's obviously why my bench is pretty good but man I am far as fk away from doing the deadlifts and squat. Just wanna hit 2/3/4 then I wanna cut my weight down but feel likes its going to take another 4 months for deadlifts if I go hard. Any other bros out there like this

    stats:
    5 9
    180lb
    21 years old

    was doing push pull legs 6days/week for like the first 2 months but in the last month I've only been working out for like 1/2 days a week because stress

    Change routines from a PPL to something with better fatigue management. Squats and DLs are pretty fatiguing if you're lifting close to your max all the time. But you want more than 1-2 times a week because all lifts respond well to proper frequency.

    Barbel Medicine The Bridge might be good for your situation.
    Candito 6 week is good for squat and DL, not so much for bench.
    RTS programming is probably the best around these days.

    As mentioned, adjusting your program is a good idea.

    Work on form as well.

    I think most people find they are stronger/weaker on certain lifts. Don't let it discourage you, keep getting stronger on everything.

    My first ever attempt on a bench press I did 225 for 4. It also pissed off my left shoulder.

    I know guys that bench 225 who don't even have a 1-plate squat.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Formerly LactoseTolerant. I'm not very imaginative.
