Hello, currently I'm benching 76lb for my first set and then I go for another set at 80lb. When I'm able to do 12 reps of my first set weight, than the next workout day I would do 80lb for my first set and 86 for my second set.
The problem is that I have set a minimum of at least 8 reps but when I try to do my second set, which like I said is currently 80lb, I can only do 6. This indicates to me that I'm lifting too much weight however, the reason I'm dong 76lb for my first set is because before, I would do 12 reps of 70lb which means I had to move up to 76lb for my first set. If anyone is confused by this please tell me and I will clarify.
Basically my question is should I go back to doing 70lb for my first set and 76lb for my second set or should I just stay at the current level?
BTW I have been at 76lb and 80lb for about a week and a half and it's not getting any easier.
