So I've been dealing with soreness in my elbows lately, trying to recoupe from strained tendons in my wrist (which hurt like heck when any pressure is applied). Shoulders been bothering me and I just couldn't get my bench where I felt "happy". I had pressed 275 last week 6x and felt ok about it, it had been about a yr since going up that heavy due to past injuries.

So on my way to the gym with my wife yesterday, I tell her I think I'm gonna try 315 today and see if I can even move it. She giggled and says "you can do it babe, just fuckin lift it". So after a nice warm up and progression, I put it up 4x. I was very happy to say the least, I haven't benched 315 in over 4 yrs, and the last time I did I was juicin.

This may not sound like much to some guys, but after wrist, shoulder, and elbow injuries, this is a big step. I believe that my diet and proper training has helped so much in this recovering. I'm not trying to go too much too fast either, been slowly progressing up and feel great. I just wanted to share this with you guys, I'd like to be pushin 405 in 6 months.

Any tips, advice, anything is greatly appreciated.

That's an awesome lift after such a long layoff! I too have the elbow/shoulder tweaks and most recently my right wrist.

I wish I had tips or advice, but I'm here to just learn. All I can do is hope you the best of luck.

Great job Bro,

405 is a BIG jump, I have no clue if 6 months is doable or not. I have never hit it. I hope to, but I never spend time working on my max, so maybe if I did I would.

Just as a heads up on my experience, it took me a while, but I worked up to the point I could do 315 for a set of 10, then 9 on my second set and 7-8 for my 3rd. Even then I could only do 395 when I tried to max. Maybe it was mental for me, everytime I tried for that extra 10 pounds so I could have 4 plates on the bar, I would get suck and not be able to lift it.

But good luck man, keep up the good work. One of these days we will both hopefully hit that 405
