    Its hard to say. I feel that getting away from benching for a few months and doing more shoulders and pushups has helped a lot. My bench still hasn't gone up much, but I feel more ready now to train hard and push to new PRs.

    For me though, im starting to think I need to stay away from going too heavy on incline and overhead stuff. So probably 6-12 reps is where Im gonna work from now on..
