I am 5"11 190lbs, all natural and have been lifting going on 3 years. I started at 155lbs (endo surprisingly). My bench seems to really be having problems. I don't know if it's flexibility or what but bringing the bar any closer than 2-3inches to my chest and the shoulders/chest feel really strained and it is a HUGE sticking point. A half inch difference in the depth of downward motion could make a 30lb difference in the weight I can lift.
I see guys smaller than me moving more weight and easily going all the way down. I know I can do 185lbs for a few reps, but probably can't bring it all the way down (pitiful) . Yesterday, a guy with a very similar build put up 245lbs and I think with my experience and size I should be able to. I know that my wrist are way small and that is a weak point, but I just want to know how I can improve that lower part of the lift and maybe it can unlock some strength gains.
