Figured its about time I stopped lurking and start participating. I've been weight lifting for a good two to three years. Right now I'm just doing it for fun/blowing off steam because I'm currently in school for my Master's in Physics/Material Science and...well time is a little scarce right now lol.
The question I have is regarding my upper body routine. Right now I'm doing 5X5 bench press (with 3 sec pause at the bottom), 3X10 lateral raises and 4X6 Chinups/3X10 slight incline bench press (super set.) I workout three days a week and alternate between upper and lower body (ex: Tue-upper, thu-lower, sat-upper then next week, tue-lower, thu-upper, sat-lower and repeat.) The problem I have is, for over a month, I've been stuck at the same weight for my bench press! Every time I try to increase the weight, I end up failing my 4th rep in my last set. Anybody have a solution to my predicament? Feel free to ask me for more info if I wasn't clear.
Thanks in advance and good to be here!
