    Average time frame until people start commenting on your muscles?

    So I was just curious as to how long it takes until you start getting to the point where people really start taking notice of your muscles.

    How long did you guys train until people started commenting?

    On steroids? 48 hours, max.


    Unless you have a few glasses of wine, in which case it could be years.

    Is 40 pounds increase in bench over a 2 month period classified as good gains?

    Since I started lifting seriously a little over 2 months ago, I have increased my bench press by 40 pounds.

    by the way...don't do maxes noob...no one cares how strong you think you are....that thought process leads to injuries and sitting on the couch losing gains....lift in the 6 to 12 range...youll get bigger and stronger....maxes are just a dangerous ego stroke

    So if your max is 225, lift 175-180? Correct?
