I know I’ve read about different sticking points in the bench press and what they mean, but I can’t find the article I’m thinking of.
My problem is that when I add weight to the bar (just about every two weeks) If I fail on my 4th set it’s ALWAYS after getting the bar about half way up.
Luckily for me there’s two sets of pins on the bench so I don’t have to roll the bar down on to my legs, but I dunno if it means I have a specific deficiency or if it’s normal to fail at the middle of the lift or what.
I always feel my flat bench more in my shoulders than my chest. My chest is definitely getting bigger though so I know it’s being worked. I bet though that if I didn’t do any flyes my chest would never get sore (unless I switched to something like 3x15 from 5x5)
So my two questions I guess are…Is there something I should be doing to help me lock out and is there a general reason why someone fails at lock out and not off the chest?
Thanks in advance for your advice
