>>35536244 that's pretty crazy. what happens if you push more? do you just fail?
maybe straight weight progression is not the way you should go and instead try to inch your way up by adding reps and/or sets wherever possible. if that's not possible, strip some weight and do backoff sets.
>>35536313 >just to the right of the spine where there's a dip, has been cramping whenever I bench.
>>35536335 >what happens if you push more? do you just fail? Yeah, halfway down I think "oh shit" and the rest is me trying hopelessly to push the bar back up, until some guy nearby curls it off me lol.
>adding reps and/or sets wherever possible will try when I get back to the gym
>>35536347 you're right, can't wait to get back there.
>>35536396 The middle yeah. How wide is my grip supposed to be? Too wide and my wrists start hurting, too narrow my shoulders hurt.
>80kg as a girl aw fuk, goals
Also, do you think this is a problem with my shoulders? When I bench there's no pain, but say when I'm out and have to carry bags or something, even if they're very light, my shoulder joint hurts like I've been holding heavy stuff for long.

really depends on your technique. if you're arching your back properly you shouldn't get a whole lot of shoulder involvement. my OHP is still abysmal yet i bench is proportionally my strongest lift. maybe throw in a few sets of close grip benching (after your regular bench) with your hands about the same width as your shoulders. touch the bar low so your shoulders don't hurt. as far as regular bench goes, use what you would define as a 'medium grip'. well outside of shoulders but (assuming you're around 5'6 or so) inside the rings.
