I'm already 24 years old. I've been to the gym MAYBE 20 times my entire lifetime (and not even for weightlifting purposes). I went yesterday and as sad as it sounds, I could only do 3 sets (8 reps) of 95 lbs on the incline bench and the same with 105 lbs on the flat bench. I'm 5'11" and weigh 168-170 lbs. I guess part of the reason I don't go to the gym much is because none of my friends do for weightlifting purposes either and the people at the gym frankly freak me out since they're so much stronger (I saw a dude next to me using 4 45 plates and I think my penis shrunk an inch or two). Plus I don't really have anyone to go with so the few times I have gone to the gym, I used weights I was comfortable with since I'm afraid of it dropping on me and killing me. So is it too late for me? I have a health background so I know all about GI index, protein importance, etc... How long does it take to get results?
