Solid lift. I just can't bench - dislocated my shoulder years ago and benching flares up rotator issues. DBs are fine though.

There's a woman at my gym who I've seen bench 170kg (375lbs). Loool.

She's just a mum that started coming to the gym to lose weight. She is insanely strong, obviously. A PT noticed her and has started training her a little.

I don't know what her top bench is, but I spotted her (along with 2 other guys) on her 170 bench. She'll comfortably rep 140.

I looked up national records a while ago and I'm pretty sure she'd smash them. I don't think she wants to compete though.

I feel your pain brother Dex!!! When I actually started training squat and dead correctly I saw huge gains but my bench doesn't like to go anywhere.
I think a lot of it is psychological...

Should be the other way around my friend! How tall are you btw? Height does make a difference, long legs and arms make it difficult to squat, deadlift, etc.
I found that when I first started lifting I would beat myself before I even started lifting the weight. I would think to myself "oh shit, I haven't done this before, it's gonna hurt, etc etc"

BUT, then I discovered that lifting heavy ass weight is 80% psychological and 20% muscle. If you believe you can do it, you more than likely will!
