Anyone know some exercises that will allow me to target that specific sticky point and explode out into the press? Id say im about 1/3 of the way up and i just cant push up anymore. Its funny because i can rep out 8 for 80s no prob and 5 reps of 85s.. But not even 1 for 90s
hmm were abouts the same, ive been on 85's for past 2 months now.. ill try 90's tomo, see if I can do it.

Shoulder pin presses will concentrate on that point of the lift I believe.

I think I'm going to start doing some front squats so I can get the flexibility to catch the bar in the right position while I do power cleans

any suggestions to help increase barbell bench press strength?
i was going real steady from 225 to 275 increasing the weight by 5lbs every week with about 4 reps on about 4-5 sets but now it seems like i've plateaued. Once i hit 280 i can only do 1 or 2 reps..
eating habits have barely changed, if anything i've been eating more & been having a lot more rest

maybe lay off the BB and switch em up with DB presses?

Hit dem triceps hard with close grip bench and weighted dips.

Keep in mind the stronger you get, the harder it will be to see gains. You can't expect to keep adding 5lbs to your bench every week. But don't get discouraged and keep at it.

Last year around this time I was exactly like you.

No chest, no shoulders...lats and back were touch and go.

Took almost 8 months for me to get back to where I was.

Forget popping pills and fighting through it because it won't work.

Time to rest + physio + modify your lifts to prevent re-injuring / re-aggravating.

Seems to be more than broscience

The role and molecular mechanism of D... [Reprod Biol Endocrinol. 2009] - PubMed - NCBI

3g a day, with meals. Be sure to cycle!

Regarding hotong's friend, remember you still need to TRAIN and EAT and SLEEP. Just taking test boosters alone isn't going to do anything but give you bacne and hair loss.

didnt you actually have an decent injury? more than likely all that helped was time to heal.

i looked at the records for the sub-juniors 66kg class and no records were set
i found that they reset all the records from before 2011 because of weight class changes, but the old records, in the 67.5kg class that they used to have for sub-juniors were 364lbs squat, 187lb bench, and 408lbs deadlift
http://bcpowerlifting.ca/records/BC%...an.01,2011.pdf
im kind of close to those numbers so i'm just going to try and see how these competitions go, but i really don't expect to win

never really bothered looking for any competitions, what other ones are there? i'll probably go watch them, but not compete in them unless the others are around the same strength, don't want to get demolished lol
