    Hey i just got into weightlifting two years ago. This semester I am finally making it a priority. I am hiring a personal trainer for four months and i'm buying a few helpful supplements. I wanted to know what is reasonable as for the amount of progress you can make in four months. Can a person add on twenty pounds a month on bench press? Also as for bicep curls and hammer curls. Is it reasonable to add ten pounds a month? Please let me know what you think it would be really helpful?

    What's your goal? To improve strength? Or to be more muscular in appearance? Sounds more like you want to improve your strength, based on your description. Right?

    Significant gains are possible if training correctly, consistently and w appropriate eating plans. Just had shoulder surgery last week which will keep me down until March. I anticipate losing a lot of muscle mass during that period. My plan is to regain it back in 12 weeks!
    I AM DETERMINED!

    It's hard to put it into numbers, especially without knowing where you're coming from but having a trainer will help a lot. Take time to find a good one and ask about their experience.
