In the past few months I’ve just recently gotten serious again about lifting and since starting my bench skyrocketed up about 50%, dropped back a bit then stagnated for the last four or five weeks without budging. My other lifts deadlifts, squats etc are still making consistant progress.
First of all my chest seems to grow a fair bit quick then everything else and is always the first thing to pack on some muscle. Which got me to thinking that maybe its some sort of muscle imbalance holding me back (i won’t pretend to know what i’m talking about here). Are there any checks I can perform to see if this is the case? different strength ratios i should have etc…
Secondly, i know its probably hard to offer advise with the above limited information but is there anything else someone can suggest that might help. I’ve had a read through some benching articles i’m just not sure where to start, or even if they really apply here.
Lastly, am I over analysing things too much? should I quit my whinging, get back to lifting and everything else will work itself out in time.
