Hey guys, I was just at the gym to do a few maxes and find out the progress I have made over the last few months… I have been eating clean, eating lots, and I know it’s early to demand huge results, but it just blew me away that my bench hasn’t increase hardly at ALL.
I have watched the Dave Tate video, and it helped, sure… I feel more confident when I get down to lift, but it hasn’t shown any number gains.
I weigh 147, I am 5’9, very low BF, and couldn’t get any more than 165 on bench today. But I can do three sets of 155, of five reps each… is there some imbalance that I should work on? I have been doing my dips, my tris are coming along, and I have been declining(I can do more weight in decline, but not much) and have also had the perfect pushup for a while now.
I know it sounds like I am a young kid just begging for secrets, really I’m not, I was just wondering what you guys thought the reason my 1RM is so low when I can grind out reps of just a little bit less weight, day in day out.
