I am new on T-Nation and I was looking for some advice in regards to my bench press that seems to be lagging behind according to me....I haven't been regularly training or following a specific training however I always tended to follow a 5*5 format and trying to squat at least 1 or twice a week and I used to bench 3 times a week to no avail...
I have decided to starting lifting more seriously since over last 8 months I wasn't really being consistent in my workouts with no specific programs to stick to with an emphasis on bench press (ego stuff probably)
My current stats are :
-I'm 6'1 and pretty much 235lbs but probably a good 20lbs of fat, belly fat ..lol..etc..
-bench press : 235Lbs 5X5 (once or twice a week)
-back squat: 335lbs 5X5 (a year ago)
-front squat: 265lbs 5*4 2 to 3 times A week ( I feel like I can squat slightly more and I think I am limited with my cross armed technique and trying to switch to the clean grip was told it might be easier for heavier weight)
-deadlift : 455lbs 5*5 (once a week)
I feel like I should be able to bench press more, however my routine for CHEST has been quite random basically bench press once or twice a week + some machine exercises....once every two weeks I may do triceps work too and same for shoulders..
Thanx a lot for the assistance....and sorry for the long posting too..lol
