Why Am I Struggling With The Bench Press?? Try These Solutions!

We have to look at the big components that go into training successfully to really dissect where you might be going wrong or could look to make improvements.


You may be stuck doing the same thing over and over and hoping to see different results.

If you've had the same technical issue, it's time to find ways to change it, not just put it on the back burner.

That may require you taking a step back in how much you can lift to make the necessary adjustments

Either that or you know what you need to do, you're just not sure how to implement it.

If that's the case, seek out the assistance of a coach.We just wrote an article on how beneficial online coaching can be to a lifter in today's world.

You don't necessarily have to work with us, but you should look for guidance at least somewhere.


You might be stuck testing, not building.

Perfect example, instead of moderate 3x5 volume work, you turn it into 3 five rep max attempts.

Prioritize good technique while putting training stress on your body. If your training looks bad, it probably is and won't change.

Find exercises you suck at and do more of those. Find training that attacks weak points and allows you to train effectively and safely.


You may not be eating enough! Find out exactly how much you eat and make sure you're eating enough to fuel your training and to get bigger and stronger.

If you're dieting or remaining in a weight class, start prioritizing the foods you eat. You have much less wiggle room when you're restricting yourself.

Quality fuel becomes a must


Forget your fancy recovery modalities.

Nothing beats the king of recovery, and that's sleep. Stop doing this and that thinking it will help you feel better, and sleep more!

Don't make excuses to why you can't sleep and look to find solutions. Add naps into your schedule
