I think I have to go back and re-evaluate how I work out my chest. Most of my other lifts are increasing except for my bench. Even the size of my other muscles are growing and my chest doesnt seem to.
I guess this is really just a rant because it's been a frustrating road that my chest has lagged strength-wise and size-wise. Guys smaller than me can bench more than me and that really bugs me...A LOT lol.
How long have you been lifting for? This could be a key factor... it may just take time to make your chest stronger.
In that case, I would have to agree with you. 225 @ 225 BW seems very low for 3 years of lifting.
no worries too. im bout 205 lbs and bench 175lbs max. ive only been lifting for 2 months though. and smaller guys do bench more then me., it pisses all of us off.
Get a knowledgable workout partner who can assist with various techniques such as training to failure, negatives, burnouts, etc. They shouldn't be used everytime, but I firmly believe they have a place in a successful routine.
