RE: Increasing Bench
Whats your current chest workout? I was stuck at about 180lb on my bench for ages. When I weighted about 170lb. I changed my routine so id try to hit 4 or 5 reps per set rather than 10. And if i could hit 5 id up the weight on the next set. Then, one workout, after I was warmed up, i had a hard session of trying to hit 1 rep max`s. I did 200lb no prob, added more weight, hit 220lb no prob. Next workout I did the same and really concentrating on feeding all my power through the bar i increased it again. Months on, now i know I can bench 250lb for 1 or 2 reps. That moved my sticking point drastically, so on my current chest routine, im doing 210lb for 5sets of 5 reps, when 8 months back I was struggling to break the 200lb barrier.
So, in summary, change your routine a bit for the next month or so, and that`ll help.
