90Kg bench press tonight!

Im weighing in at 63Kg and today managed to bench 90kg with 3 sets of 3!
 
I train currently on full body workouts 3 days a week but it is focused on the chest mainly.
 
My diet is ok, as im gaining.  I currently use PWO formula and Post workout formula as wekk as a good weight gainer.
 
I feel i am making massive progress on this 3 day full body programme, as only 4 weeks back i was struggling to push 75Kg!
 
Even on 10 x 3 i can still push 80 kg, so im aiming to hit 100Kg soon!
 
I train at home, so im curious to know what other people of my weight can push?
 
Im gonna keep eating anyway in the hope that i get to that 100 kg mark soon!

    Impressive lifting mate, keep it going.

    Do you do any deads, squats or military press?

    Squats and presses regular, no dead lifts at current though.

    My routine is from the I fitness app for Iphone, its the 3 day chest builder workout.
    It combines exercises for full body workout, but switches between sets of 8-10, sets of 6-8 and sets of 1-3.  Seems to work very well in my opinion.

    Cheers for the positive comments guys

    If you can do 3x3 with 90kg you can bench 100kg. I first bench 100kg at the same as you and wouldn't have been doing 3x3 with 90kg I don't think.

    Body Weight - 83kg 
    Bench - 145kg
    Squat - 190kg
    Clean & Jerk - 129kg
    Snatch - 98kg

    ^Same, I could only get 3 reps of 90 out when I once benched 100, never 3 sets of 90... If they were all unaided reps then really well done mate...

    I managed 92.5kg @ 3 x 3 today, i dont have a spotter so im a little worried about opting for the 100kg 1 Rep Max, i may just work my way up in next few weeks i reckon

    No need to rush 1RM attempts, it's just an ego thing. Stick with what you are doing if it's working and you'll be using 100kg as a legit working weight in no time.

    well done mate, thats good stuff, i'm currently around 64  - 65 kg. highest i've done so far is 82.5kgs for 2 x 6 reps. then i took a month off and my strength dropped. i just managed 70kg for 1 x 6 last week so i'm improving :)
     
    don't forget to add the bar weight like i did, i thought i was benching 62 and was proud as punch, then someone pointed out the bar is 20 in itself so i'd actually been doing 82 ! :D a noobish mistake.
     
    so hopefully by summer i reckon i can do 100kg hopefully.
     
    btw, i don't have a spotter either, so i use a smith machine, which i think lessens the challenge.

    Yer true, i dont have a spotter, and sometimes i let myself down just lifting it off the stantions to get going.  I'd imagine i could greatly increase my weight with the aid of a spotter. 
    It enjoyable working my way up though so cant complain
    Thanks again for positive comments

    You have no spotter as in you train at home or you don't ask for one in the gym?
    Doing 92.kg without a spotter is just as dangerous as 100kg. If you are in the gym just ask someone for a spot. I ask randoms for spots every time I bench. Just tell em to keep their hands away from the bar!!
     
    Btw you could smash 100kg next session.

    Body Weight - 83kg 
    Bench - 145kg
    Squat - 190kg
    Clean & Jerk - 129kg
    Snatch - 98kg

    I have no spotter because i train at home.  I have a squat rack so i can always throw the bar back onto the pins if need be.
    I seemed to move 92.5kg comfortoubly for 3x3 this week so ill look to increase again next week
    Oh the joy

    I always use the pins as a spotter, but I always train 8-10 reps, don't know if its that easy if you're training at lower rep range though
