My 1rm with no spotter for dumbells chest press is along the lones of 110-125. Truly depends on the quality of sleep I had and that’s the highest I’ve ever tried to go. Could be more. Anyways. I struggle with a plate on each side, and a 25 lb weight. So like 160 (45lb bar).
I’m more of a squater, shoulder presses and dead lifter for strength. Hitting 400+ on two of those and obviously a lot lower for shoulder presses. So I’m not the weakest guy in the world.
Tl;dr I’m getting stronger with dumbell chest press but not with barbell bench press. I haven’t been doing this for more than like 2 or 3 months but my bench press is just not getting better, why not? I’m 6’4 with an almost 7’0 ft wing span if that helps.
