I like that phrase I may start using it. You're making some good progress thus far, keep it at and you're going to put on some good size, it's all about consistency.

Thankyou for the positive comments it's always good for some extra motivation, and while i'm posting i might aswell list some targets so i have something to aim for in the short term. I want to reach 150lb bench, 180lb squat and 200lb deadlift. And weight target is to put on 14lbs.

you'l most likely pass the 200lb mark on deads, well before hitting 150 on bench. but you are making excellent progress, just make sure your form is spot on in these early stages and you'll find it easier to keep gaining strength for longer.

yeah i have a feeling that getting my bench up is going to be hard because at the moment that and the overhead press are my weakest lifts, but thats all the more reason to improve them. I'm thinking of getting a big mirror on the wall so i can make sure my form is good, thats one of the negatives of working out at home, you have no one there to tell you when you're doing it wrong!

just do videos, mirrors can be deceptive as you have no depth perception from a mirror, set up your phone or a cam to record your sets.

Today was the worst workout i have had so far. I am feeling very pissed off as it feels like i have taken a step backwards. My thigh strain seems to have moved to my groin so squats were very laboured and i only managed to push the weight up slightly. I am beginning to hate the overhead press with a vengence, this is were i need advice, today i had to take the working set down to 71.5lbs as i couldn't get 88lbs up for 1 rep, how can i push past this and improve my strength on this press, should i lower the weights and start again? Here is todays workout.

Squat
71.5x2x5
93.5x1x5
115.5x1x3
148.5x1x2
159.5x3x5

Overhead press
44x2x5
55x1x5
71.5x1x3
82.5x1x2
71.5x3x5

Pendlay rows
88x2x5
93.5x1x5
99x1x3
104.5x1x2
110x3x5

Dips BWx3x5
