Bench Press

When I started working out in May of 2010 I weighed in at just over 180lbs. My max bench press was 135 lbs.  I know, WEAK.  I had met a couple of goals on the bench press but came to a plateau where I was stuck for 3 months with out raising my max weight.  I have not done much bench pressing, (maybe 2 times per month) over the past three months while I am doing P90X.  I know P90X makes your back strong but doesn't do too much for the chest.  I have also heard that a stronger back will increase your bench press. We'll it's true, on Saturday I passes my goal by 20 lbs and bench pressed 220lbs with a body weight of 165lbs.  It feels awesome to see results of hard work and determination.  P90X does more for you than just tone you up if you add heavier weights and lower your reps.

Thats good to know! Sometimes I feel like I'm missing out on certain aspects of working out.. like bench press, etc. I kind of had it in my mind that when I finishe P90x, I would have to start back at square 1 with bench press. I worked really hard at it last year...Started off wtih just being able to do that bar. Then little by little I had 15 on each side ( I know.. puny, but I'm a girl! lol)

SO, anyways, its good to know that I will be going back to bench press with a better foundation than before!

75 lbs bench is great for someone your size! I bet you will do more when you are done with P90X ;)
