Okay first workout did 3 sets of 5 with 215. Worked with that till I could do 3 sets of eight. Stepped up to 225 for 3X5 and here’s how the sets have went from then 6,6,7 - 7,7,6 - 8,7,6 - 7,6,6 - 6,7,5 - 8,6, 275 X 3/4, 225x3. What the fuck is going on? Why am I stuck. All my other lifts keep increasing. And flat bench is the lift ive done the least of in my lifting career. So I shouldnt be at a plateau yet. I just dont understand how my body is not adapting to the weight.
How the fuck am I going to adhear to the principal of progressive overload if im not getting stronger in the lift. How the fuck can I get stronger if I cant get stronger. It doesnt even make logical sense. How the fuck can I not even do the same as I did the last workout. Its going down instead of up. Im not a fucking idiot. I study alot of shit and I bust my ass in the gym, im eatin over 4000 cals a day with a good protein to carb ratio. I dont eat any man made bullshit, no sugar, drink lots of water I make my own meal replacement bars I dont drink smoke or party. Im not gettin as much sleep as I should. But like I said all my other lifts are going up. I know it takes time. But why is my strength in the bench not slowy progressing. Its always just as hard as it was the time before or harder.
Id really appreciate some good constructive critisicm.
