recently i’ve noticed a few things that I have been thinking may be strength imbalances that should possibly be addressed in some way
first, the weight I can do for 10 reps on the decline close grip bench press is about the same as what I can do with a normal “wide” grip.
second, a few people have been surprised at how little I can barbell bench press for 10 reps (155) compared to the amount I can dumbell bench press for 10 reps (65 / hand). I’m not too concerned about this one, just looking for some thoughts.
also, I can squat 295 for 10 reps hamstrings parallel blah blah. is this high compared to my upper body strength? (i can do about 10 very good form chinups, 7-8 pullups, and the benching numbers mentioned above) i’m 6’ tall and believe I have pretty long legs with a relatively short torso and medium arm length.
I can deadlift 255 x 8-10, but i hear that most people can deadlift more than they can squat?
when i first started training about a year ago i did splits for about 10 months. the past two months i’ve been doing a Waterbury based tbt thing that i’ve kinda been straying from lately but still using as a general template due to good strength gains (not so sure about size)
any thoughts or is this all looking normal?
