I’m confused by the terms you’re using. A plate? Do you mean you’re benching about 135, squatting 315 and deadlifting 365ish?Hey guys and gals, I'm looking for some advice. I want to improve my bench press and I'm not sure if I'm doing incorrect form or what. I don't think it's likely as I do workout with a friend from time to time and get him to point out if I'm doing anything wrong.
I'm benching about a plate right now, which is great and all, but my squats are getting close to 3 plates for a one rep max, and I'm doing like 3.5 plates when deadlifting with some strap assistance.
Any other workouts I can do to help train my form or chest muscles? When I do flys I seem to be able to keep up with some other people who lift heavier than I with bench, so any help is appreciated!
Edit: I've recently just started doing the 100 pushup challenge thing to try and help with bench and just because they're easy to do.
If that’s the case, something is seriously wrong with your numbers. Either your form isn’t dialed in on those other lifts and those aren’t your actual numbers, or you have the strangest distribution in strength I’ve ever heard of.
Regardless, what’s your programming like? If you want to get stronger, you should be focusing on reps in the 1-5 range, increasing weight each week.
You know me and how I eat 8-10 cups of vegetables per day. You get used to it. Though when cutting weight, I up the number of vegetables and usually hit the toilet twice a day.
