Anyone know where I can buy more weights for the bench press? I only have 180lbs of them as a B-Day gift, well, only 140, the bar weighs 40lbs which was a workout when I first started out.
Originally posted by astrocreep Maybe I'll do higher reps with like 380 or something and lay off the 400+ until I feel it getting better.

Wow...I feel bad now.
I'm 17, 170 and something pounds and a little of 5'11''.
The bad thing is, the last time I benchpressed was three years ago and maxed out at a whopping 90lbs! Last time I squatted with weights was in 7th grade and easily did 115 to 120lbs and have never done deadlifts.
I know, I know...I'm terribly weak and am one of the laziest people I know actually. I need to find a way to get myself into starting to weight lift and stuff, so any tips on how to motivate myself and how to start without embarassing myself?
