The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Help with benching


    The gist of it is what the title says: I suck at benching.

    I can usually use the chest press to the top notch at the gym, however I barely lift anything when benching.

    I admit that I do have an old shoulder injury that had surgery on about 4 years ago, but it is healed now and I have no excuse.

    I weigh in at 80-85kgs and can only just bench about 6 * 65kgs. That is only about 3/4 of my body weight. People I know are becnhing their own body weight (the serious lifters are doing WAY over that.)

    Has anybody got any relevant tips for me? I want to be able to bench at least 90kgs for my own sake as my sports coach wants minimum lift of 1* 90kgs to make the team.
