Apologies if this is in the wrong forum, powerlifting seemed like the right place.
I'm trying to improve my dumbbell bench press, and keep up with my training partner.
Went for 5x5 with 42kg DB last night, it was a new weight for both of us but I could only manage 3 of the sets where as he busted out 4 (neither of us managed the full 5; hit failure and were genuinely f*cked).
This is a trend that has been continuing for a while. He seems to be able to perform so much better in the press than i can and i can't understand why: when we do something predominantly Triceps like dips, or pectorals like flyes or something similar i kick his arse.
I didn't know if there was any guidance you guys could offer me in any movements / methods / muscles I should be working on to improve?
