Its been literally 30 days today since i started going to the gym. Im curious about how often i should see gains and increase weight on lifts.
For instance I have made gains in some areas but not in others.
Legs. Im up 25 pounds on my squats, 20 pounds on press, 10 pounds on my curls and extensions.
Biceps and chest I have not been able to add any weight. Except for dips. I use to need the machine assist, now i can do them quite easily. This was most surprising to me.
Quite frustrating that im still at the same weight.
I assume bicep will be the hardest to add weight because the weight increments will be in the 5 pounds, which is a large % of the 25 or 30 pound dumbell im curling now.
My bench press could be mental. Im pretty scared to add weight without a spotter. Should i be benching on the smith machine instead?
Back and shoulders not really sure, will find out in a couple of days though when i try to increase weight.
