Have you tried steroids?


What weight and reps are you using with these exercises?

What was your bodyweight last month? What did you weigh yesterday?

What's your specific goal?


im doing 95's on incline for 8 reps decline 90's for 8 flat im stuck on 85's i weigh 190 i bounce between 190 and 195


your not eating enough


Are you training to get a strong flat db bench press? If your incline and decline db bench are improving and give you good gains then maybe flat bench isn't for you. Personally I always feel a better stretch ad contraction in my pecs using a slight incline.
