I’ve been training about one year now, details are in my profile, but I have a question about my current weights for the squat, benchpress, and deadlift.
For some reason the weight rank of the 3 go this way: deadlift > squat > benchpress.
I can’t seem to figure it out, but the bench press just seems like the most awkward lift for myself. Compared to the squat or deadlift, it just feels wonky and uncontrolled. It’s the lowest poundage of my current lifts and has frustrated me to hell. I think my form is somewhat off and my triceps are a bit weak.
In any event, does anyone have advice on form, progression, and assistance exercises in the goal of a bigger bench.
p.s. I’d like to fall back on the “im not biomechanically made to benchpress”, but it seems like BS and an excuse to not train harder.
also, here are my numbers:
bench 165 x 5
squat 185 x 5
deadlift 225 x 5
