    There's actually a theory to that.

    Supposedly, by placing the "brand" side inwards, that makes the center of gravity easier to control; thus, making your benching slightly easier.

    Maybe you're not putting enough weight on your sets. If you could do 8-10 reps without a problem, then it's time to increase your weight.

    If you're benching off a machine, then it won't work your chest as well as free weights. You won't get as many gains and your strength will be misleading.

    Make sure you're using proper form. And I hope you mean flat bench and not those machine benches.
