    I am also an advocate of long rest periods between lifts. Honestly, I think a month isnt long enough. I did my first workout session when I was 12 years old. I logged everything I did. My max bench was 90 lbs back then. I am going for my 2nd training session today (25 years old, almost 26). I am hoping to see some good gains on my BP. My goal is to max out at at least 100. Since benching 12 years ago I havent done much. I played high level hockey, thats about it. I still expect that I can lift more than I could when I was 12 though, as I have given my pecks a long time to heal.

    Ill report back with my findings.

        what, 1RM?

        I don't really bench press or deadlift, never liked them too much.

        I felt happier with the squat and pull down, much safer more controlled exercises.

          Start with a powerful and fundamental exercise.... the push-up. Then you can graduate to bench press, dumbbell fly/dumbbell presses. Within weeks you'll notice an improvement in your chest. If you are half-decided about what exercises you want to do you can't expect immediate or lasting results. The more muscle you exercise and involve the more overall results you will see and quicker. Muscle tear down/rebuilding is a 24/7 process which means you will burn fat in your sleep while your body rebuilds and recovers. If you stick with a solid weekly program and a strict diet for 8-12 weeks, then you will make some progress.

            Follow the fitness plan and you'll get there. The downloadable e-book is free when you sign up and is only about a hundred pages long. Simple movements: pushups, pullups, planks and squats. It's all that is prescribed and really all that you need. Once you get to the mastery level, there are variations you can incorporate that will challenge you and build your strength further.
