I just reached my goal of benching 225lbs and now realize that the more I progress the more likely my progress is to slow. For this reason I thought we could make a list of things to do when progress slows down.
1) Eat More and better
2) Drink more water
3) Get more sleep
4) Change workout splits and exercises
5) Do negatives on certain exercises
6) Do singles of 10 sets but week 1 allow 90seconds between sets then the next week allow only 75 seconds etc... until you can do 10 reps without any rest (got this from muscle and fitness)
