Today was my test max at the bench press. I ran a 5-week cycle, Johnnie Candito’s one. It is pure linear periodization and I was hoping at the very least for a 5lbs PR. I was going for 250 pounds, but the rep just popped out of my chest maybe an inch or two, and it stalled there. It’s been maybe 8 months that my bench has stalled.
I’ve tried everything. I suspect a triceps weakness and a big one. And I don’t know anymore how to periodize my training. I’m a bit lost since I don’t even know what to do. Currently, I’m weighing 160 pounds and I want to shoot for a 275 lbs, 9 months from now.
Could some of you give me some advices. I’m pretty sure my form is solid, I got a tight back, great arch and a good leg drive. I’ve been training for 4 years now and I’ve never been so lost. I have a great knowledge about powerlifting programs such as WB, 5/3/1, etc. but I feel like I have someone to tell me what to do instead of jumping from lilypad from lilypad as Tate would say.
