Ok so basically I’m wondering why the hell my chest is so weak compared to my other body parts?
My BB Bench hasn’t moved much considerably versus my other lifts. In fact, I just went to the gym today, back on a mass phase, and was trying to get 6-8 reps. My friend/workout buddy easily gets 4 sets of 8reps at 235, while I struggle at 215. The only thing different between us is that his triceps are larger than mine. However, when it comes to flies, I could do more weight and reps then him.
He was telling me that it was because I have weaker triceps/shoulders than him, is this true?
I’m just getting annoyed that I am improving greatly on the other two main lifts, Squats(1RM 325) and DL (1RM 450) while I probably could barely get 250 for my 1rm on bench.
And it’s not like I have a small chest. I actually look like I could push more weight, but it’s all just looks…when push comes to shove I fail.
So would his theory about my triceps/shoulders being weak being the reason for my low bench? And if so…how the hell can I get beat my tris and shoulders down to bring up my bench?
