Hey all.. I was just thinking about the different type of pressing.. and comparing my lifts.. to see or understand if I have a strength balance..
When I look at threads like Kevin's who seems to be able to Close Grip BP almost as much as his regular, it makes me wonder if that is average, or ideal, if my tris are weaker then they should be???
Anyone else want to compare their various ratios? Here are mine: (I'm using x5 reps - only b/c they seem to be more based on real strength then 1 RM & b/c my 1 RMs are less consistant LOL)
Flat BP: 275x5
Close Grip BP: 205 x 5
Incline BP: 215 x 5 (usually stand Incline bench - 30 degrees)
Military Press: 185 x 5
Flat DB Press: 120s x 5 (240 total)
Incline DB Press: 95s x 5 (190 total)
DB Military Press: 70s x 5 (140 total)
Flat BP w/Feet on Bench: 245 x 5
Dips: BW (233) + 70 x 5 (form breaks down a little, so there is chest involved)
I think my tris are weaker then my chest and shoulders.. in comparison..
Anyone else with an opinion?
