took pre workout for the firs time, C4 brand and found it had little to no effect on me except made my skin tingly.
30,M. afraid I will never learn how to develop strength and be able to do bench press
only progress I was able to do with pre workout was I was able to lift 40 lbs dumbbell for the first time ( max weight i can lift in my daily workout is 35 lbs ). I did 2 set of 10 reps of shoulder press with 40 lb dumbbell. That too with a lot of struggle.
I dont know whats wrong with me. I've tried everything. Even started drinking protein shakes as of late. By the way, how quickly are supposed to be drink protein shake after a workout? by the time i get home from gym and prepare to make a protein shake, its already 20 minutes.
Right now, I still struggle with bench press. I see other people easily doing bench press of up to 45 lbs and I cant even lift the bar. Why do my arms feel so weak? Are my genes to blame?
WHAT.AM.I.DOING.WRONG? Is there any hope that I can build strength?
Not that it matters that much but I had a whole bag of doritos dynamite and an iced cappcuino and a chicke breast with 2 pieces of white bread as my lunch 4 hours before my workout.
Please , someone put me in the right direction.
