you got 14 weeks, just keep the meal plan a little clean maybe fit some cardio in the week sometime you'll be fine. hell for 4lbs thats probably just cutting your water intake the last 3 days

A quick 311 bench for my top single. Running on 4 hours of sleep and little food so it’s good to know I can hit this on the worst days

Please bless a breh with some tips. My bench is so trash it's embarrassing.

Missed 310 for 1 today; got stuck half way from lockout and couldn't recover it. Hate benching on these adjustable benches in a rack. Didn't fall off the bench looking confused like ole buddy on Tuesday but still. :smh:

FWIW, my sticking point on BP used to be right off the chest (like 0-4"), now it's shifted to the halfway point.

Shoulder pain? Triceps? Those are some symptoms

my biggest advice is don’t focus on sticking points. Just keep benching with a full range of motion. Most likely you’re always going to have sticking points and the best way to get pass them is to just get stronger unless it’s a form issue.

after I bench I throw some variations in there too like

close grip bench 3x8
Wide grip tempo bench 3-0-0 3x8 (this means 3 second descent)

these really helped bring my bench up

Whenever gyms reopen here in AZ, I'll be going late night when it's empty from now on. I'm way too nervous to lift in a crowded gym anymore
