You have a pretty strong back, your shoulders do need some help and so do your tris, but then again everyones tris can be stronger. It seems like your pause is good due to your declining.

It sounds like you are getting strong. I suggest that you get the average bands and use them to do the triceps pushdowns as it says on the Westside site..I have started doing these and its really working well. I train my triceps a lot more now than I used to and the band pushdowns have really helped. They are known to bring up bench press numbers

Your back looks strong.I agree with Cubanito17 on the shoulders and tris.Where is your sticking point at when you max?At the bottom?The top?

Lats

Old 27-Feb-2002, 11:13 AM   #8

I would think your lats need work if its at the bottom.The floor presses that you are doing should continue to help the bottom of your bench.There are other factors such as speed,if your shoulders are tucked, etc...

Read this artile http://www.testosterone.net/articles/180press.html

Good luck

Sticking point

Old 27-Feb-2002, 01:22 PM   #9

Your sticking point is probably caused by lack of speed. How much do you use on dynamic day? Do you use chains or bands? I had the same prob until I started with chains and bands, now it blows off my chest to about 3 inches from lockout, weak tri's for me. Oh well. Definitely do the band pressdowns, they will help tremendously! Also try JM presses. Good luck

from what i can tell, i dont use my lats in benching much ( i've never noticed)... i havent started westside yet, im posting these lifts to find out what my weak points are to be able to base my routine around them..so i dont use chains or bands
i've only done floor presses once.
also in my bench i cant get the leg drive down right.. i got it once, and 180 went up really quick compared to my usual. but i only get a good leg drive every so often, im not very consistent w/ it.

goldenone, thanks for the link ,it was a good article,
