    What weight are you benching? It might be too much for you. Try lowering the weight until you feel confortable and then up the weight about 5 kg every month as you get better. That's what i do.
    If you shoulders are failing then make sure you are training them correctly. Post your routine and other more experienced weightlifters might be able to help you.

    you will never get a big pump in the chest from benching, delts and tri`s take most of the brunt, if you want a pump from benching try super setting/ pre-exhausting with flyes first..
