The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    So my bench is stuck.

    Ive hit a plateau on the bench press and Im not sure what to do. I want to try Dumbell bench press but it seems like such a pain the get the weights in place on your chest and then its a pain to ease them back down. Should I try out incline/decline pressing, or any other ideas? Also if i try dumbells what weight should I be doing, If I can BB bench press 190 about 8 or 9 times?

    lockouts, floor presses, switch to lower reps, and put on some weight.

    where is your weak spot, attack that.
    get more sleep will also help you break through.

    yes it can be hard, but the main thing that stalls me on my bench is when i am not getting enough sleep, when i do i get super strong.
