    That really sucks man, you were bench pressing a pretty impressive weight.

    How have you been travelling mate, is an op still on the cards or are you able to manage without one?

    I am in my early 30s but so crippled with injuries from years of lifting weights I am doing well if I can get a bench over 100kilos these days lol. Like I have shocking tendinitis for example.

    So thats an amazing bench press at 50 holy moly.

    Not too bad thanks mate, the disc problem has settled down but I am terrified of re-injuring it so although I am back in the gym I am taking it slowly.
    Trying to avoid an op at the moment.
    All the best.

    I always train on my own so never do bench press. Use free weights instead.

    What does 44kg dumbbells translate into bench press? Push out 4-6 of those!

    Hard to say. I could bench 130kg while I was doing 48 - 50kg dumbells......so maybe around 120?

    I found dumbells really effective but eventually I always injure my left shoulder so I pretty much stick to barbell these days.

    There is a lot going on with a db press so its not so easy to convert. Depends on how strong your stabiliser are and how deep you are taking the stretch. A oly bar cant pass through your chest but you can with DBs. Either way thats an impressive lift.

    Numbers itself arent important. You are stronger than most people i see at the gym. Everyone can bench 2 plates at the pub but i might see a bloke or two a week smash it out perfectly.

    I'm nowhere near that at the moment, just started back this week after a long lay-off. Turns out early morning gym sessions aren't so easy when you have a kid.

    Last Monday I pushed 130kg bench for triples at 92ishkgs bodyweight, in my early 20s also. Felt like I had more in the tank but I've strained myself in the past from pushing myself too hard, it was a PB anyway

    I don't really train for anything in particular other than the satisfaction of lifting big numbers so probably more a powerlifting mindset haha. Although I haven't deadlifted in quite a while due to a back injury suffered from a work related injury :/

    Fairly lean, have a lot of definition and if I had to guess I'd be around 12-13%ish body fat with a lot of LBM

    Climbed my first grade 23 climb a couple of weeks ago, and I've lost 30kgs in 5 years. Made me feel like a better human :)
