    I got 2 reps @ 225 when I was doing 90s. I didn't try to go any higher because I go alone so I wasn't going to ask for a spot. I was just trying to get 1/2/3/4

      Dumbell benching with the same weight is harder

        No it’s not. Unless you have your shoulders out (which should not be used with anything but lightweight as it’s easy to damage your rotator cuffs doing that) Dumbell benching is easy as fuck. Can do it for reps with the heaviest shit at any gym I’ve gone to (usually 100-150lbs each) and I bench 300-350lbs

    Dumbbell bench is retarded because you should be strong enough within a few months to not be able to get the dumbbells to the rack. I’ve also seen people misgroove and dump the dumbbell on their face; they lost teeth. It is safer to barbell bench solo without clips than it is to dumbbell bench past 120ish and even then it’s shaky. You should be benching 225x10 within 3-4 months of training if you weigh about 200.

      Dumbell bench is done for hypertrophy, you're never gonna do 5 reps of that shit, for me although I'm past 2pl8 bench, I do dumbell bench with 25kg for 10-15 reps

          Pretty based. Americans, Canadians, and western cultures in general are soulless.

          It's like with the advent and propogation of social media and the internet they have lost capacity for higher thought or culture. It's just mememememe, how do I get richer, how do I get stronger, how do I look better, how do I fuck more girls, how do I make ppl like me, etc. All they do is listen to rap music, watch tiktok/insta/twitter eat McDonald's, shit talk their parents, drink alcohol, and have sex. That is their culture.
          The only rebuttal you'll hear are muh chink! Muh pajeet! Muh Europoor! I saw happier people in my shithole third world country, in a village with a family of 6, with multiple generations, all living in a shack, than I see here. No rebuttal to the arguments prove you are correct.

      I think it has to do with the remnants of the protestantism and its values... the elevation of the individual, my house, my boat, my painting of myself (as in the style of the dutch in the middle ages). They value productivity and money above all, so the result is the monetization of everything and looking at the world through a prism of 'success'.

      With the garden gnomes holding the reigns on the mass media and being able to insert thoughts and ideas into the general populace through their media machine the goycattle laps it up and equates begin successful not with having a loving spouse and a happy family but being better than the other, having a badder bitch, having more money.

      In the end what we get is a shallowness and competitiveness that serves noone but the ideasellers at the top.

          exactly. theyre constantly going on about muh 6figure salary etc etc, they have replaced God and values with money. It is a fact that everyone needs some money to survive but they blow it way out of proportion. They are gripped by fear of not being cool enough, of not being hip enough, of not being woke enough. Their lack of core moral strength thus produces a competition in not 'being' something but 'having' something. Even the badges they put on themselves, as in musician, DJ, skater, filmmaker, sporty person are somehow claimed with a fierceness as if they are an end product that must align with the general idea of what that lifestyle is, not as something that is to be enjoyed for the sake of itself and explored because it brings inner peace..As if a personaity itself is a tool in achieving more material possessions and a higher standing in society. I am generalizing here but I am afraid it is like that, Shallownes indeed idk. Life is a walk in the park for them yet they are completely oblivious to all but self. This world and this way of operating is not sustainable. I feel as if the world and society at large is running on fumes and the moment something larger snaps in the chain of supply and materials it will be a shitshow and this world of constant on demand heat electricity oil and food is an illusion waiting to be smashed

They stopped growing, the opinions they have haven't changed in years, they have no new experiences, they have no hobbies, I tap out when they start taking about their Roth and vanguard accounts.

          Absolutely right. A “loving and pure” relationship will never happen in a sniveling loser’s life. No girl will be perpetually attracted to and love an overly committed man who pedestalizes their relationship to some idealist fairytale nonsense.
          Ironically enough you will not enjoy any one woman’s love until you are just jaded enough to casually disregard her at times.

        Even if she wants herself, maybe she likes the music? If she dresses like a slut (like many do), yeah it's because of vain. But just because a girl like to go to parties/festivals doesn't automatically mean she isn't searching for love. You can't expect her to do nothing in the meantime.

          Here’s what you don’t get, retard boy. You are bottom of the totem pole. Genetic trash. The trad 7/10 has chad suitors that want to make her a wife. You don’t just “get” a good wife, you have to have VALUE. And VALUE means other women fight over you. A trad girl will choose a chad who wants to “settle down” over a virgin like you. If you don’t have options you don’t make the calls.
