Re: WHEN 2 Increase weights ?!?!?!

What is a 4 day training routine? Please don't tell me it's something you got out of FLEX or Muscle and Fitness. If it is, ditch it immediately in favor of a real strength and conditioning program.

And what are your current lift numbers like? If you're pretty new to this you should be able to increase weight every session--that's the definition of "novice" lifter.

Also, please don't use AOL-speak on the boards. i.e. spell out "when 2" as "when to".

Ok, but still, unless you're currently squatting about 400 and deadlifting about 500, you should be able to make progress on a by-workout basis. What kind of program are you doing and what are your current numbers?

Re: WHEN 2 Increase weights ?!?!?!

You're a beginner.... you're benching 62 lbs.....

Working out a lot does not mean you are not beginners. I know people who have worked out consistently for 10+ years who are still beginners because they don't know what they are doing and continue to do the same old stuff in the gym without making progression.

Your lifts are indicative of your level.

Whats your height, weight, deadlift, squat, press, bench, pullups, dips, and rowing numbers?
