You're making crazy progress on bench press.

I'm guessing they don't have any free weight benches though. It would be really nice to transition to that because it's a much better exercise, but while I've never been to a planet fitness the lunk alarm would lead me to believe they don't have free benches.

Thanks! Yeah unfortunately they don't have any barbells but they do have free weights and benches. I alternate between Smith machine bench press and dumbbell bench press that way my stabalizer muscles get worked too. Right now I do 4 sets of 12 at 50 each with neutral grip both flat and incline.

When I switch gyms I don't want to be a complete mess when benching with an actual barbell so I do more free weight work for what I can haha

Slight update:

I fluctuate between 260-265 now
Bench press: 4x5 @ 205
Deadlift: 3x5 @ 320
Squat: 1x5 @ 250 (this is actually a surprise because I haven't done barbell squats since mid September. I've been doing body weight/dumbbell squat variations because I don't like the way the squats feel with heavy weight on the Smith machine)
Shirt size: 2xl almost entirely
Pants: 38 almost entirely

I haven't really lost weight since like mid September but my body looks better and I've gotten stronger so I'm not too worried about that

Also not related to my main goals but I can do 3-4 reps of dips and I can do 2 chin ups and one pull up which I didn't think I'd be able to do so soon and that's cool

Very strong bench. All of your numbers are solid, but that bench stands out the most for sure. Really awesome work man.
