I am stuck. For the second time in 5 years I have hit a plateau that I just cannot break through.
Here is the dilemma…
at a bw of 228
I used Dave Tate’s 9 week bench program last time to break through a plateau…but it didn’t help this time.
The squat and d/l haven’t budged in several months…so I tried a little of EC and MR mobility and soft tissue suggestions and have improved my mobility and loosened up the hips to hopefully help lower body get totally involved instead of just lower back.
I am just frustrated and looking for suggestions to break through these plateaus. I am limited to 3 days a week in the gym. I know my weaknesses are about 4" off the chest in the BP, just above parallel in the squat (I squat below parallel, no problem out of the hole…but just above parallel is the major sticking point), and the d/l is just piss poor, probably a weak/inactive glute hammy issue.
If anyone has suffered through any of these issues and found a method to break through I would love to hear from you. This site has been a great help in improving my programming and economizing my time in the gym. Thanks in advance for any ideas!
