    Bench is stuck

    My bench is lacking bad, I can only hit 275lb! Squats and deadlifts are well over 400, I dnt really arch my back I'm pretty much flat on the bench. Could this be the problem? Any suggestions? Thanks

    i wouldnt say your bench is bad at all, those numbers seem balanced to me.

    arching or changing your technique could always help. you can find plenty instructional videos about the bench press over on elitefts.com

    Too many variables without any video or anything.
