I'm sure others might have a more scientific approach but I'd find a strength program and stick to it from beginning to end. (ex: wendlers, 5x5, smolov, smolov jr)

My bench always gets better when my general strength is up too. In December I strained a hip muscle and couldn't squat. Getting back to 3/week squatting in January and PR'd my bench by 10lbs.

Took me about 2 years to hit 225 for 5.

Mind you that I started off as 117lb (now 152-155lb) benching 80lb for under 5 reps

try bands attached to the bench and bar bell helps with getting a bigger bench

Strength Bands

Starting to slowly claw my lifts back up


Love it, go every damn day now without fail. No excuses, only gainz


Side note ... when the hell did raw meat get so expensive? Frozen stuff isn't bad if I barbecue it, but I'd much rather be able to chuck it in the oven

i've struggled with lower back pain recently myself, but most back pain is caused by the following

- tight hip flexors and psoas (probably #1)
- tight hamstrings
- improper/inadequate bracing of core

and obviously, poor form - but personally my form on most exercises is decent

I do have very tight hips/hamstrings/psoas, but I have been constantly stretching them to achieve full range of motion. Currently still having troubles bending forward from Tuesday's injury. I believe the major cause was bad deadlift form on Friday (going for some PR's) which led to some minor back pain, then while squatting on Tuesday it got worse because I tend to lean forward while reracking my weights. It's been slowly getting less painful each day, but I will be taking the next week or two off work and the gym to fully recover.

I'm on the lift weights everyday program.

240lbs bodyweight seems to be my kryptonite. Having a hard time getting past that.

Berz out.

I go 6 days a week because I became a fat fuark, and I didn't feel 5x5 was giving me the results I wanted


Hit my weak points twice a week, so for example I have an extra chest/lats day, extra legs/arms day
