i know their are many PL routines out their to get a big bench. i need to ask what lifts has gave you a carryover to your bench? how many times did you work chest per week? how many times did you bench per week?


i am in need to figure why my bench (raw & shirted) isnt going up, but instead downhill. im progressing deadlift/squat but not bench. i have taken days off, done 1-4" boards, mini bands, average bands, CG/tricep work, floor press, bench 2x week, and shoulder work for the past 2-3 months and it just hasnt worked for me.

sometime during april/march 07, my best ever raw bench was 275lb and 315lb with loose shirt. till today, its the same. 2-3 weeks ago, i attempted my max raw/shirted bench again but failed it. i been eating the same since. if anything, ive actually gained minor pounds overall. what could i be doing wrong?

here is my training log which doesnt go too far back: http://www.wannabebigforums.com/showthread.php?t=96773


any advice?
