so this is my story
i have seem to hit a impenetrable brick wall in my training more specifically my flat bench has stalled for well over a year and i have no clue on what to do.
during this year or so i tried other methods westside and 5/3/1 but still couldnt add a pound. i gained about 30 pounds and still couldnt budge the weight. i improved the strength in my shoulders and triceps and my incline bench went up and so did military press but still flat bench is still giving me nightmares.
my sticking points seen to be about half way up so i tired to bench of pins which i can go heaiver on but its feels like all my shoulders are doing the work and it started to hurt after a while.
at the moment bnech is 170 and im about 230pounds
also if your suggestion is bands, chains i cant afford these right now
