Bench Press

I know this questions probably been asked a million times, but I’ve been working out pretty hard for about 2 years and for some reason I can’t seem to bench more than 225lbs. I’ve gotten all different tips, like doing 3 sets of about 3-5 reps. but I was wondering if anyone recommends doing drop sets then exploding out, or doing some wide or close grip sets. Basically anything to increase my bench.

Do a search on tmag for the Dave Tate article on the bench press. It should answer your questions.

have you strictly followed a routine layed out by ian king or done a westside routine. do something but follow their advice. then tell us the results. laters pk

How have you been working your triceps & rear delts. I hope to be of help. In faith, Coach Davies
