I'm in the same scenario as you. Haven't done barbell benching in 3 weeks, went back to it and lost 2-3 reps on 225lb.

I think my dumbbell is going to be stronger than my barbell soon if I keep this up.

Going back to barbell soon..but it's just so encouraging to be breaking records weekly.

Will post video once I hit dem 120s

ive been doing 100s for like 3 years because my damn gym doesnt go any higher. i do sets of like 12 incline now lol.

if i half ass barbell bench it usually settles around 245 for like 5-6 reps. it takes focusing on lifting heavy twice a week before it will climb and i can get it up to around 300 but as soon as i back off even for 2 weeks it drops right back down.

compare that to dead lifts for example, i can take a month off, and almost lift more the next time lol.


i havent been lifting heavy for quite a while, been focusing more on 10-12 rep range stuff and more auxiliary lifts like flies and raises. its really been helping with growing. but i sorta want to get back into a heavy lift mode again.

hmm, anyone up for a bench challenge?

I'm definetly down, because 315 will be my new years resolution of 2013, and hopefully it won't be my 2014 resolution

I am in for bench challenge. I'm at 225lb 1x5 and db 100lb 1x5/ 95lb 3x5. Need motivation to break this plateau.

My gym maxes at 120lb db's and I want to be able to flat bench them by Dec 2013

hey i plan to be the strongest guy at my retirement home lol

anways, its all about your goals. the only thing i train for is strength and speed (relative to my bw ofc). no amount of eating clean will increase my lifts -the true work is done in the gym and at the track so why deprive myself of tasty foods

macros are for bodybuilders. acquire F = ma, disregard everything else

My shoulder is healing slowly but surely. Hit the gym after my physio today to experiment with what lifts I can slowly start re-introducing without fear of starting prematurely. Biggest lift that gave me problems, and what I think messed up my shoulder to begin with was squatting low bar. My shoulder didn't have the flexibility to grab the bar well, and I forced it, injuring the joint and ligament. I threw some weight on the bar and picked it up high bar. No pain. So it looks like I will start squatting again, high bar until my shoulder is 100% better, and my flexibility is up to par.

Definetly agree with you. Even for guys that don't have shoulder pain, shoulder flexibility can be quite the issue when its that far down your back and you're having to rely on some of your shoulders to take on some of that weight. I know of a few guys that can't even do high bar because their shoulders are really that inflexibile and sensitive to pain.

Just goes to illustrate how squats really incorporate the full body and justifies its compound aspect. Much like how leg power/hip power can help with a good solid footing and hip drive for bench, and how good hamstring, forearm strength, and back strength delivers a strong deadlift. Sadly enough, one joint injury can really affect all your compounds some way or another...
