I’m having trouble with my bench press. I had started at 5 x 3 and worked up to 5 x 5.
Once i got 5 x 5 it went to hell the following week - very difficult to meet the previous weeks rep scheme.
So i added 2kg and went back to 5 x 3 but even this is really hard.
At the moment i’m dieting (down 32 lbs so far) and wonder might it be due to this? On the other hand my reps on many other exercises are going up as well as weight in other exercises.
Any thoughts on what i should do? Go higher reps for a while or 5,4,3,2,1 system?
Any help/advice appreciated.
