I have been doing a basic westside program for not to long for the raw power lifter and I have been getting very great results with my deadlift and squat strength but my bench is the only thing that really isn’t improving. I’ve been stuck at 285 bench max for a while I don’t what I’m doing wrong with my program heres is ME day:
ME exercises Regular bench (my competition grip), close grip, floor press, incline bench, close grip incline, illegally wide grip bench for a 5RM. Work up to a max switch every 2-3 weeks
Pressing movement: 5 reps 2-3 sets
Extention: 8-10 reps 2-3 sets
Lats: 2-3 sets 4-6 reps
Shoulders 2 sets 8-10 reps (light)
I currently started Illegaly wide grip bench this week because I feel I have a problem with pushing the bar of my chest while the rest of the lockout is very easy.
Well, there it is my ME day, any help would be appreciated also if this might help I stay two reps shy of failure for my supplementary exercises.
