help... dis-proportiante lifts??
I am curious as to why my bench press isn't in proportion to other exercises...
My p.bs are as follows: -
90 kg x 2 reps military press
105/110kg x 1 rep bench press
180 kg x 1 rep dead lift (using no straps and underhand/overhand technique, can't seem to get on with straps and just use chalk, grip is my main problem getting any further with this).
185 kg x 5 reps normal squat on a smith excluding bar(have only started squatting the last month as I thought it would help with the other exercises)
I don't understand why my bench is so rubbish, I've tried assistance exercises like narrow grip bench and it's still not making any difference.
I am of stocky build 5ft 10ins 13stone 8lbs/14 stone and 28 years old...
My legs are quite naturally bulky but not massive, but I don't want them to get any bigger as I believe your waist gets bigger and that's a problem already for me trying to keep between 34/36" waist.
If I cut the reps down on my squat to say 3 reps is this still ok, and just want to get my bench up...
Or should I stop being bothered and just accept that I'm rubbish at bench and be happy with the other stuff?
Not on any gear.
