I think it’s weird that the OP hasn’t received a unanimous response of “EAT”. He benches 175 for fuck’s sake. Any talk about programming and lagging muscles is ridiculous. Saying SS has run it’s course is total bullshit. He should be able to improve with any program if he eats more. 10 sets of 10 cartwheels would probably be sufficient at his level of development.[/quote]
While I think that’s completely true and OP needs to gain weight, training properly and smart he can still put more LBS on his bench without gaining much if any weight.[/quote]
I didn’t say he needs to gain weight. I’m saying that if he was doing SS, actually lifting with intensity, and eating properly, there would be no reason to be stalled at a 175 bench press. Which means 1 of those 3 components is missing. If I assume he’s following the program properly, this leaves intensity and diet. I think diet is the more likely culprit.
EDIT: a fourth possibility is that OP is female. That would make a difference.
Also, please note that in his first post he mentioned he’s ‘on a bulk’. So he clearly wants to gain weight.[/quote]
Not a girl and yeah, you’re right with 175lbs being too low to stall. That’s why I needed help because I always stuck on that weight…
