This is slow? I think this it is fantastic to more than double your bench press in a month! While I can leg press 450 pounds for 6 good reps, I can't do an overhead-press with a 22 pound KB with my left arm (I can with my right), and I can only push press an unweighted 35-lb BB. I know that it isn't about the weight, it is about the effort but I've been trying to build upper body strength for quite some time. As women we do tend to gain lower body strength more easily than upper.

Patience and consistence, that is what I keep telling myself, patience and consistence and listen to the expert I've hired to help me
